Girls Leadership Academy is the most caring school environment in the state of Arizona. Nowhere else in the state will have teachers that care about your education as much as GLAAZ does. The uniforms and the small school size might be off putting, but this school prepares you for college. The teachers love what they do and adapt well to different students. The school is designed for students’ success. There is no better school for girl’s anywhere.

Girls Leadership Academy is a great all girls school. It’s small and the teachers are always there to help you when you need them. As a student here, I can say that this school has prepared me for college in the best ways possible. There are always college admin coming to our school to recruit girls. The counselor helps you apply for colleges/universities and scholarships. There is also a college prep class that focuses a lot on test taking especifically the ACT and SAT. In my time here, there have been field trips to all in-state universities to visit the campus and learn more bout them. Overall, this school is great for students that are really focused on their academic goals and are looking to go to college or university.
I have attended Girls Leadership academy for four years now, it i a great environment and helps young girls like me be successful in college and in life. The environment at GLAAZ is friendly and has many classes to choose from. The have small classes and offer real support to students. They offer a number of programs to help you get started with college such as the ACE program.
