An English based exam is required for any student whose first language is not English. Garrison Forest will accept the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), Duolingo, Vericant or the TOEFL Junior (8th grade applicants only). GFS code for the TOEFL: 5267

What does the research show?

Subtracting boys from a girl’s school environment simply adds up to many more opportunities—and better learning—for the girls.

Nearly 80% of girls’ schools students大发体育官方网址 report most of their classes challenge them to achieve their full academic potential vs. 72.3% of girls at coed independent and 44.3% at coed public schools.- Dr. Richard A. Holmgren, Allegheny College, ‘Steeped in Learning: the Students Experience at All-Girls Schools

More positive academic and behavioral interactions [were observed] between teachers and students in the single-sex schools than in comparison to coed schools.- U.S. Department of Education, “Early Implementation of Public Single-Sex Schools: Perceptions and Characteristics.”

93% of girls’ school grads say they were offered greater leadership opportunities than peers at coed schools and 80% have held leadership positions since graduating from high school.- Goodman Research Group, “The Girls’ School Experience: A Survey of Young Alumnae of Single-Sex Schools”

Compared to coed peers, girls’ school grads are 3 times more likely to consider engineering careers.

Nearly 50% of all women graduating from girls’ schools rate their public speaking ability as high vs. 38% from coed schools.

Dr. Linda Sax, UCLA, “Women Graduates of Single-Sex and Coeducational High Schools: Difference in their Characteristics and the Transition to College”
