Craighead has a reputation for lifting the performance of its students. This is the result of fine teaching and pride in seeing the girls achieve good results.
Our school philosophy is that many students may have unrealized potential. Therefore, we encourage a process of self-discovery.
Performance is closely measured from the time a student enters the school and progress is carefully monitored.
There is a strong work ethic where positive expectations fuel students’ willingness to strive to be the best they can be.
Entry to the school is not based on academic ability. We enjoy diversity and helping every girl to discover her capabilities. There are no assumptions. No limitations. In the Craighead environment, girls have the capacity to excel. Indeed, Craighead girls perform well above the national average in all subjects.
Education goes further than the classroom. We are concerned with preparing our students with skills and strategies that will help them throughout life.
