Women are perpetually under represented in Computer Science, and as an all-girls school we are particularly well-suited to address the deficit.Technology is a natural part of teaching and learning here.
National Coalition of Girls' Schools research shows that girls' school graduates are six times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology and three times more likely to consider technology careers compared to girls who attend coed schools.
SEM graduates are well-prepared for a future expanded by opportunities to learn beyond the walls of their classroom, by seamless access to information, and by teachers who appreciate the creative possibilities inherent in technology.
Dynamic and engaging teachers will always be the most important component of a SEM education but full technology integration offers additional resources for creative instruction.
Research shows that female students who take AP computer science are more likely to major in computer science in college compared to female students of similar background and academic preparation who didn't take AP computer science courses.
