The Archer School for Girls Reviews

I loved my six years at Archer and would recommend it to any girl who is invested in their education and loves learning. The teachers are amazing; I have never felt bored by the classes. You are treated not as a child, but (to a certain extent) an equal, where teachers listen to you and are invested in your growth, not only as a student, but as a person as well. I was on the speech and debate team in high school and loved it! Spirit events at Archer are unparalleled! The entire school is brought together at the heart of campus, the courtyard, and there is just so much joy and happiness. I really don't know how to explain it any other way. I just graduated (class of 2020) and can, without a doubt, say I am ready to take on college with confidence and poise, all which I gained from my education at Archer.

TOP NOTCH! Archer has been an incredible experience for my daughter. She has voiced numerous times that she loves her school because she can be herself and all of her school mates are very supportive. We could not be happier and I feel that Archer encourages the girls to be the best versions of themselves. The joy felt among the students and the administration is infectious and there is a strong sense of community among the Archer families. Archer offers strong academic & athletic programs as well as on going support to help our girls become more confident, resilient and empowered. A++

1. Rules feel unnecessarily strict, making it difficult to trust adults. Students lose privileges for tardiness to class meetings/minor violations of the uniform policy. Result of Archer's priority to keep up appearances for trustees, prospective parents, and resentful Brentwood residents.
2. overall, social scene is not my ideal situation — would help if the student body was more diverse and interested in art. younger grades have dealt with fairly extreme cases of bullying (including using the n-word and slut shaming)
3. a lot of teachers leave within 1-2 years.
4. sustainability
5. dances/prom
