I think we're going to apply to the all girl's high school. H loved the visit last week. She said all the girls in the classes participate in the discussions, and there were no disruptions from the boys. She loved the campus, the library, the cafeteria, and the girls that she met on her tour. It's a bit of a surprise. She has always loved the school she's attended since kindergarten. Still loves it, but thinks that the new school would give her some different experiences and additional opportunities. We don't know how competitive it will be to get in, but I expect it will not be a piece of cake. Several of her classmates have done the tour and say they will be applying as well.
As I've said before, the administration that was present at the parent's meeting that I attended were strong, confident, happy, well-spoken, sharply dressed...all the things I hope for H as she grows up.
