The Young Women's Leadership School (TYWLS) nurtures the intellectual curiosity and confidence in female identifying students. We are committed to supporting all students in order to maximize academic achievement, social-emotional well being, and post-secondary success. TYWLS-Queens is supported by Student Leadership Network and College Bound Initiative (CBI) to replicate the best practices of private and independent girls schools. TYWLS-Queens opened in 2005 as the third school in the Student Leadership Network. Our community aims to support students with a sense of leadership and community responsibility; characteristics that will support them as they become the change makers of the next generation. TYWLS-Queens expects families to play an active role in their daughters' education and support the values of our uniformed school.
