Western High School, a college preparatory school founded in 1844, is the oldest all-girls public high school in the nation and is one of the city’s most distinguished institutions of learning. Every student's course load will give her a strong academic foundation to successfully pursue a four-year college degree. The six academic programs at Western are designed to provide opportunities for students to develop and enhance their academic and artistic abilities in STEM, fine arts (including vocal music, dance, graphic design, and instrumental music), and information technology. Western also offers more than 25 clubs, activities, and athletics that allow every girl to explore a wide variety of interests. With the guidance, assistance, and direction of our staff, students acquire the skills to continue their education so they will become engaged citizens and leaders. We are able to hold high the banner that proclaims our slogan, “Western, Only the Best.”
