If you're looking for a school who will treat you like their own sister, then this school is just the right school for you! The teachers here genuinely cares for us, our well-being, and our academic success. The academics are very good. We are taught at a higher academic standard and we often do very well when we transition to higher grade levels. The administration is always looking for ways to enhance the school and they're always very open to ideas. Since this is a sisterhood school, the meaning of sisterhood is very clearly displayed here. Everyone here treats each other as if they were their real sisters and we're always there for each other even through good and bad times, the highs and lows, and through rain and sunshine.

Attending an all-girl school environment taught me many things, such as how to be a leader, and how important education is. YWLA also taught us girls how to be strong, smart, and bold. Our school is college readiness, and our faculty and staff makes sure we get the best education and school experience we can get. I work hard in that school because "I am a GEM of the YWLA, pushing the boundaries of math, science and technology. I will be a servant leader who will demonstrate a positive attitude. Education is key to success"!
About 400 kids with a 17:1 student-faculty ratio which is convenient for all students due to the fact that each child that doesn't have much of an understanding in class can ask a teacher for individual help. We have many traditions. The Adamas Walk. Seniors are on the top floor(the 4th floor) while juniors are on the first floor. All the underclassmen are lined up along the stairs with pom-poms, clappers, and whistles. We also have houses that we will be alumni of after we graduate. We have chanting , community service and donations competitions, etc! We are also a National Blue Ribbon School making us 1 of the top 5 schools in America! Teachers are helpful. Last year of 2017, 36 seniors raised $4.4 million in scholarships and so far every class got accepted into a college!
