This is a school where students’ voices are heard and acted upon. They are empowered to take responsibility for their learning and shape the overall learning experience. They are encouraged to develop leadership abilities, become an independent thinker, take risks and learn from mistakes, and collaborate with others.
SMS girls are used to stepping into leadership roles in Grades 7-12 because it is part of their everyday experience. Student clubs, school assemblies, lunchtime intramural, the spring production, fundraising activities and environmental programs are all led by our students.
The Leadership Program includes:
Encouraging students to develop leadership abilities, become an independent thinker, take risks and learn from mistakes, and collaborate with others.
Providing girls with authentic leadership experience, including school clubs, athletics, the Big Sister/ Little Sister Program, outdoor education, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, community service projects, and the House System.
Introducing leadership concepts through exercises in communication skills, self-reflection and teambuilding.
