The Baldwin School
701 W Montgomery Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
Miss Florence Baldwin founded this school, which initially enrolled 13 girls, to prepare students for Bryn Mawr College. Located in Miss Baldwin's mother's house at the corner of Montgomery and Morris avenues, the school was met with disapproval upon its establishment, as education for young women in the late 1800s was widely considered unnecessary, and some felt it was potentially dangerous as well. Baldwin's college preparatory curriculum prepares students for competitive colleges across the country. The school features strong art, music and drama programs, as well as a full athletic schedule. The Service League stresses personal contributions to the school and the community. The school's location enables girls to partake of Philadelphia's cultural and educational institutions, and to take advantage of programs at Bryn Mawr and Haverford. Academic and social activities are conducted regularly with nearby boys' and coed schools.
