All Girls

There are three major advantages for girls who are educated in a single gender school, include: expanded educational opportunity, custom-tailored learning and instruction, and greater autonomy of thought and expression. Single gender schools help to foster an environment where their students

think for themselves and take control of their own lives. By eliminating false gender stereotypes, all female schools can liberate and empower their girls to explore various subjects and pursue excellence in all disciplines. It is for these reasons that ALH believes that the opportunity to experience a single-gender education, should be one that is offered freely to any and all girls who would choose it.
