Thanks to our small class sizes, our students learn that there is enormous potential and power in being in an all girls’ environment. McGehee is a school of girls for girls. Our students understand that they can do anything because here girls fill every role.
At McGehee, technology is an integral part of the learning experience. We do not simply teach computer classes. Rather, technology is used to enhance our curriculum and to teach our girls the skills they need to be successful and to keep pace with constantly changing technological advances.

Our extraordinary faculty respects the way girls learn and teaches with a curriculum that goes beyond the walls of the classroom.
