A Special Blog Post from Head of School, Nancy Richards, M. ED
If the time passed since March 2020 has taught us anything it is that humanity as a whole must come together to influence positive change.
With that said, we can confidently claim that since 1891 St. Mildred's- Lightbourn School has been a pioneer in women's education, delivering a well-rounded curriculum of rigorous academic studies, global citizenship, competitive sport, healthy active living and community service. The tradition of inspiring and empowering women continues to be the hallmark of SMLS today.
Our academic program utilizes the highest standard of proven best practices and innovative approaches. We identify each girl’s academic strengths and challenges, so that we can support her in achieving success and confidence in her own abilities.
We focus on the social, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing of every girl from Preschool to Grade 12. We understand developmental stages of girls and work with each girl to ensure she is known, supported, and challenged to be her best self.
Experts in Girls' Learning
Our faculty members are experts in their fields, with extensive experience in teaching and learning designed for girls. They get to know each girl and form a personalized connection to help her thrive in her education at SMLS and beyond.
