Science and Technology
Teamwork, persistence, encouragement. You might think we’re talking about athletics, but these qualities are present in all of our science classes as well.
By combining a rigorous academic curriculum with engaging hands-on projects, La Reina’s science department helps girls understand that science is truly for everyone. Perhaps this is why over 40% of La Reina graduates choose to major in STEM fields compared with only 27% of their female public-school counterparts.
With writing infused throughout the curriculum, La Reina students learn not only how to experiment and analyze, but also how to effectively communicate what they have learned. La Reina alumnae report that their communication skills set them apart from their public-school peers in their college programs, and help open doors professionally.
