Young Women's Leadership School of the Bronx (TYWLS)

Overview written by the school: Our school community consists of confident and compassionate young women. We specialize in mathematics, science, and technology. Personal and academic growth is supported in a strong advisory program. We focus on female adolescent development, positive self-image, effective communication, leadership development, and college awareness. Learning is dynamic and our small class sizes enable students to experience great success on many levels. The educational experience is enhanced only through strong partnerships with The Young Women's Network, College Bound Initiative, and College Now with Lehman College. With their support, we are able to replicate the best practices of a private and independent girl's school and provide a quality education.
