Students explore complex ideas in Harkness discussions, collaborate with classmates for interdisciplinary projects, and take initiative in independent study opportunities. With the support of their teachers and the Upper School community, our students set and achieve ambitious academic goals.
At every step of their education, girls are encouraged to develop their own questions, and we consciously nurture in our students the awareness that asking one’s own question is often more valuable than answering someone else’s. Bryn Mawr girls are known for developing strong and well-founded opinions and for not being afraid to share them.
Outside the classroom, more than 50 student-led clubs encourage girls to explore familiar interests as well as try new things. Students may also choose from 16 interscholastic sports teams, and have the opportunity to explore a range of artistic and personal interests through activities like singing groups, a handbell choir, a rock band, ceramics, robotics, community service outreach and more. We hope you’ll come see what makes Bryn Mawr an amazing place to go to school! Jeanette Budzik
