We empower girls to succeed academically, lead confidently, live boldly, and thrive physically.
Welcome to the Girls Athletic Leadership School Los Angeles (GALS LA)! GALS LA is an independent charter school opening in August 2016 with 125 6th grade girls. The school will be located in or near Van Nuys, CA.
Based on the highly successful Girls Athletic Leadership School in Denver, Colorado, GALS LA will provide a small-school learning environment predicated on best practices in gender-based and active learning for middle grade girls. The school will provide an innovative and necessary educational option that engages health and wellness as a key-contributing factor in optimizing academic achievement and self-development.
Why All Girls? Research shows that girls who attended all-girls schools had increased self-esteem and stronger academic performance, especially in math and science.
