Stoneleigh-Burnham School is defined by its uniquely supportive and caring community. Girls flourish here as they are challenged to push themselves and to take risks in their learning. With class sizes that average just 10 students, there is no back row in which to hide. Each girl will contribute to every class with her unique opinions and ideas.
As the first and only girls' school in New England to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, we are dedicated to ensuring our girls graduate with the ability to draw connections across disciplines and to be active, compassionate lifelong learners.
At Stoneleigh-Burnham, we are proud to be a girls' school and know that years of research confirm that the all-girl environment creates a culture of achievement. Based on research that shows connectedness, competence, and confidence are the core elements of self-esteem in girls, our curriculum cultivates in each girl and appreciation for all aspects of a liberal arts education and stretches her to understand the multi-sensory, collaborative process by which she learns about herself and her world.
With 155 girls in six grades, it's hard to believe that our students hail from over 15 countries around the world. Our students approach subjects from an international viewpoint and thus acquire a balanced view of themselves in the larger world. From the residence halls, to dance class, to Forum classes and athletics, we are dedicated to exposing our students to diversity of culture, place, and people because we know that success in the 21st century is dependent on tolerance and international-mindedness.
