About

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.
