Overview

Urban Assembly Institute of Math and Science for Young Women says

Our school is the only all-girls school designed to encourage and foster the achievement of young women in math, science and technology. Our challenging curriculum uses interdisciplinary, inquiry-based models of learning that actively engage all students in both math and science and their other academic classes. Through our partners, students have the opportunity to participate in a range of internships. Our partners also connect our students with role models and mentors who inspire them not only to challenge their self-perceptions but also the stereotypes that currently exist for women in math and science today. Additionally, our after-school programs provide unique opportunities for students to explore their interests in fields involving math and science. Our graduates will posses the skills needed to be successful in future careers and college and to make the choices that positively impact their lives.
