    The Agnes Irwin school has been a key factor in shaping me into the resourceful and resilient young woman I am today. The intimate size of the community fosters a true drive for individuality and success, while the all-girls environment supports strong encouragement through academics, athletics, and the arts. The teachers pour passion into not only each of their lessons, but into the wellbeing of their students. I know will always stay connected with my classmates when I leave and they’ll always support me. My teachers at Agnes Irwin don't just teach me what they're supposed to and move on. They make efforts to build bonds and relationships with their students, and when the students leave the teachers continually check in with them to see how they're doing. Agnes Irwin is truly one big family. I know that even after I'm through with roaming the halls of that school, my support from there will never go away.

    I love the community, the teachers, students... everyone has each others back! We are such a close-knit community!
    In general, I love the school. Most teachers are really great and they put their heart into teaching. They make helpful powerpoints and handouts that aid us in understanding what's being taught. Some on the other hand could do better. There are plenty of clubs and organizations to join. However, students feel that the administration doesn't always support them or their clubs. As for diversity, I'd like to see more of it throughout all grades. Some sports are more supported than others. Athletics, as a whole, are more highly regarded than the arts although recently, the school has heard suggestions from the students and has been working on making them equal.
