Who We Are

Why All Girls

ALL GIRLS MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

With 694 students – all girls – grades 9-12, DSHA offers an environment in which young women thrive without distractions or compromises. Each girl is fully allowed to be herself, focusing on life-long learning, rooted in courage and integrity. An educational approach based entirely on girls and the way they learn best, coupled with exemplary, college preparatory academic and co-curricular opportunities, inspire students to explore and realize their passions. Girls, DSHA is all about you! What is best for your life, your fulfillment, and your success.

MEET THE YOUNG WOMEN OF DSHA:

The real difference – the one that matters to you – is the experience you’ll have every day and who you’ll be when you graduate: educated, knowing your gifts, talents and passions; ready for college and ready for life.

Single gender programs create an institutional and classroom climate in which female students can express themselves freely and frequently, and develop higher order thinking skills.

LEADERSHIP: You. Can. Do. Anything.

At DSHA, girls do everything, and because of that, you will learn you can do anything as a confident, capable, thoughtful leader. You will learn to be a self-advocate, a critical thinker, an effective communicator, and a believer – ready to be a change-maker in the world upon graduation.

LEARNING: Relax. And be you.

DSHA embraces everything that makes you, you. Learn what you’re good at, how to challenge yourself, and how to excel. The all-girls focus on learning means less distractions in the classroom as teachers and students interact as adults, enthusiastically committed to education.

LIFE: An amazing, empowering sisterhood.

Girls thrive together – every day at DSHA – challenging, leading and encouraging one another to realize each other’s potential. In and out of the classroom, you are surrounded by opportunities to shine. You and your fellow classmates support and rally around one another. Because in her, you see you.
