Archer School for Girls

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Maybe you didn't notice when it stopped being the Eastern Star Home for Women -- that 1931 Spanish Revival <em>casa grande </em>on Sunset that was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989.</p>
<p>That's OK.  It looks exactly the same, but the beautiful structure now houses the Archer School for Girls, started in 1995 by three mothers who couldn't find a school they liked for their daughters.</p> <p>This all-girl institution "provides more than a traditional, girl-centric learning environment. [It]... equally prepares young women for leadership in our ever-emerging global world."</p> <p>Offering grades six through 12 and enrolling around 450 students, 31% are "students of color." Students come from 138 elementary and secondary schools and from 71 Los Angeles zip codes. Over $2.5 million in tuition assistance is awarded annually.</p> <p>True to  founders' vision, Archer says it remains "intentional in its practice of teaching girls the way they learn best."</p>
