We are in a unique and pivotal moment in time. Today, 47% of the U.S. workforce is composed of women, but women still hold only 27% of CEO positions [Department of Labor, 2017]. Today, more than half of undergraduate students are women, but women are still significantly underrepresented in key areas of study. We have made good progress, but there is still important work to do.
Girls’ schools play a critical role. 93% of students who have attended girls’ schools report that they had greater leadership opportunities, 66% expect to earn a graduate or professional degree, and research shows that girls’ school graduates are six times more likely to pursue majors in math, science, and technology [National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, 2016].
At Nashoba Brooks, our students learn to develop both the skills and the confidence to learn and lead in any environment. They bring with them boundless curiosity and unlimited potential, and they inspire each other to dig deeply into learning. Nashoba Brooks students develop their own voice and perspective through multiple learning platforms—research and problem solving, coding and composition, music and drama. Our students learn to express their ideas with confidence and consider multiple perspectives in honing their own.
Nashoba Brooks graduates embark on new opportunities with confidence. They identify how they can fit into or navigate around challenging learning dynamics, our students claim and shape learning opportunities to complement their strengths, challenge their areas for improvement, engage their peers, and maximize their individual growth.
We invite you to experience the impact of Nashoba Brooks for yourself.
