Marlborough School

250 S Rossmore Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90004

Established when Maine's Mary S. Caswell took two decades of work experience in Eastern schools to the West Coast, Marlborough is the oldest independent school for girls in southern California. Originally located in downtown Los Angeles, it moved to its present, four-acre site in residential Hancock Park in 1916. The school now draws students from more than 100 area public and independent elementary schools. At all grade levels, the curriculum incorporates discussion-based lessons, teamwork among students and hands-on learning. Marlborough maintains high academic standards, with the traditional academic program supplemented by a variety of electives, off-campus internships and community service opportunities. The school also maintains strong fine arts and performing arts programs. Through the integrated technology curriculum, girls learn to use computers efficiently and to employ them as a learning aid. Students may pursue independent work in the humanities and social sciences in collaboration with a mentor in Greater Los Angeles and a Marlborough faculty member. Seniors gain exposure to professional laboratory research techniques through the school's honors research in science course.
