President's Welcome

From the moment I set foot onto La Reina’s picturesque campus, I knew I was becoming part of something special. For over fifty years, La Reina has been educating young women to lead a life of achievement and engagement, built on the foundation of the educational principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame and our Catholic faith. We continue to be a school where girls in grades 6 through 12 find their place in a caring and nurturing community.

I invite you to explore and discover what it means to be a La Reina girl. Every member of our community — faculty, staff, parents, alumnae, board members, and friends — believes in the value of an all-girls education. At La Reina we invite every student to stretch her mind and develop her voice.

Research from the National Coalition of Girls Schools demonstrates that girls who attend single-gender schools have clear advantages. In a recent study called Steeped in Learning: The Student Experience at All-Girls Schools, the NCGS surveyed nearly 13,000 girls attending all-girls schools, coed independent schools, and coed public schools. The resulting comparative analysis makes a compelling case for the girls’ school advantage.

A letter from Principal Maggie Marschner

At La Reina, we believe that parents are the primary educators of their daughters.  We are all part of the La Reina family, and our faculty and staff work in partnership with our parents and our students.  This foundation of partnership and trust sets our students up for academic success in the classroom.  We take pride in our talented faculty. The teachers at La Reina are professionals in their field and are always collaborating and engaging in professional development to refine their practice as Next Generation educators.

La Reina has always been a leader in the world of education, and will continue leading the way through the implementation of our Strategic Plan 2019-2024- Her Future; Our Focus. The plan brings our mission to life and is centered on La Reina’s unshakable commitment to a transformative education for young women.
