Led by senior Amanda Bassett, Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona has 66 students and 2 adults participating in the GLSEN Day of Silence http://www.dayofsilence.org. This number has been increasing as students hear about the activity and choose to participate.
 
The Day of Silence is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) annual day of action to protest the bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and their supporters. Students take a day-long vow of silence to symbolically represent the silencing of LGBT students and their supporters.





Students at GLAA have spent the last two months working on their Spring Exhibition Projects. This year, freshmen have completed an in depth study of genocide and its impacts around the world. Sophomores have delved into biology and will report on a disease, its global impact and potential solutions. And the juniors have entered the world of historical and philosophical debates and will present their arguments to us on topics such as individual rights versus the greater good. Please plan to join your student as they present the culmination of their hard work!  

Spring exhibitions will be held Wednesday, April 30 from 3:00 PM- 8:00 PM and Thursday, May 1 from 7:30 AM- 4:00 PM. We strongly encourage students to have an adult or family representative join them for their exhibition.







The first public single-gender charter high school in our state, Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona (GLAAZ) empowers young women to succeed as leaders in their classrooms, in their communities, and in their own lives. We achieve this vision by sustaining rigor, relevance and relationships: the hallmarks of a 21st century school.

Envisioned as the premier educational option for young women, GLAAZ combines the most successful models of school reform with highly effective teachers and curricula that connects the work of the school to the life of our community. GLAAZ shares the attributes of high schools that work: a common focus on research-based goals and an intellectual mission; a small, personalized learning community; technology as a tool for designing and delivering engaging, imaginative curricula; and, rigorous academic standards for both high school and college level studies. GLAAZ is committed to providing opportunities for students to earn college credits beginning in the freshman year of high school. The young women of GLAAZ are empowered to:

  • Contribute to our community through service learning and civic engagement
  • Participate in school-wide initiatives and decision-making
  • Create meaningful community involvement for students, teachers and parents through service learning, job internships and participation in community-based organizations
  • Develop leadership skills in our weekly advisory program, supplemented with “Girl Meets World,” a curriculum also selected by Oprah for her leadership school.

"I have big plans ahead of me...Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona is the
only school that can help me fulfill my highest potential."
