We had two girls go through the school and had a great experience. Cannot recommend it enough. Just go to an information session and you will be impressed by the energy and vision of the school. I'd have my girls go there even if it were co-ed, based on the education alone, but by being a girls only middle school, they create something even more extraordinary, boosting the girls' confidence and sense of self.

Pros: Great education, staff, philosophy, and Energy!

Cons: Goes by too fast!

My daughter graduated from Julia Morgan's 8th grade several years ago and had a fabulous experience.

The teachers are both inspired and inspiring -- they understand what makes girls tick, love their subject matter, and come up with really creative approaches to teaching.

The curriculum is interconnected in a way that makes it easy and exciting to make connections between subjects -- for instance, in one unit in 7th grade the girls learned about the middle ages in social studies, read a novel about Joan of Arc in English and then put on a mock trial of Joan, learned Gregorian chant in music, and made their own illuminated manuscripts in art.

There are units in financial literacy (how to create a household budget! balance your checkbook! stay out of credit card debt! write a business plan!) -- as well as an advisory program that addresses a lot of the tough social/developmental issues that face preteen girls.

Taking boys out of the picture for three years gives them the space to be themselves rather than continually looking over their shoulder for guys' approval.

The girls come out of JMSG feeling confident in themselves, willing to speak their minds, and with strong academic skills to succeed in high school and college.

I think back on how miserable middle school was for many of us, and wish there had been a place like JMSG back then.
