The First All-Girls Public School In Missouri
Welcome to Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls! Hawthorn is the only public all-girls school in Missouri. We provide middle and high school girls a high quality, college preparatory education with a particular focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Hawthorn opened in 2015 with 120 6th and 7th grade girls. The school will add a new sixth grade each school year until 2020 when we will be fully enrolled with approximately 450 girls in 6th – 12th grades.
Hawthorn is the first school of its kind, an all-girls’ public charter school offering all St. Louis families the opportunity to choose a single-sex school for their middle and high school daughters. Hawthorn provides young women with the academic background, self-esteem, and leadership skills that will enable them to succeed in college and beyond.
