From Our Head of School
I cannot hope to adequately convey with my words alone how exciting it is to be the 13th Head of The Agnes Irwin School, a historic and pioneering institution with an outstanding legacy of achievement. (See Convocation Video.)
Nearly 150 years of success, the vision and innovation of twelve Heads of School, a thousand exemplar educators and dedicated staff, the bounty and treasure of hundreds of benefactors forged in the crucible of time to create the Agnes Irwin we see—a place where our mission is realized: to empower girls to learn, to lead and to live a legacy.
Agnes Irwin is impressive from any perspective—from exquisite new space for athletics, student life and innovation to the embrace of interdisciplinary teaching and learning and ample opportunities for leadership at all grade levels. The Center for the Advancement of Girls has brought important new programs and partnerships to Agnes Irwin that are distinguishing the School as a preeminent national leader in girls’ education.
I enthusiastically invite you to come experience Agnes Irwin for yourself with a visit to our campus. Come see our classrooms in action, meet our students and talk with our faculty and staff. I guarantee you will be impressed by what you discover -- the value of an Agnes Irwin education. (See Wendy's Bio.)
