Atlanta Girls' School

We are Atlanta Girls’ School. We prepare girls for college. They will need to be curious, creative, collaborative, and confident.

In a world becoming exponentially more complex, girls will face challenges that cannot be solved with traditional methods alone. At Atlanta Girls’ School, we teach girls to be world-class problem solvers. Our curriculum and culture emerge from a distinct vision of what girls must learn individually and collectively to become thoughtful and capable leaders. We achieve this by using proven and emerg

Today was Horizon Day at AGS, where we had a blast with our sisters, making memories that will last a lifetime! Earth and Sky teams battled it out in games and outdoor adventures, all in good fun. Here’s to a year of togetherness, energy, and non-stop excitement! Cheers to sisterhood and endless laughter!


Have you ever gone into a situation expecting to be disappointed in order to avoid feeling disappointed if things didn’t go your way? In her Senior Speech, Ai reminded us that while expecting disappointment may protect our feelings in the short term, the downside is that it may also diminish our hope. As Ai so very eloquently pointed out, hope is something worth holding on to–especially in those instances where we’re convinced things will not go our way. Thank you, Ai for your inspiring words!

AGS just had the most unforgettable prom this past weekend! Laughter echoed through the night, smiles lit up the room, and the dance floor was alive with epic moves and unforgettable memories. Here’s to a night of pure magic! And thank you to for the amazing photos capturing the night!


Congratulations to the varsity tennis team on a successful season, and best of luck to the doubles team of Abby (pictured on far left) and Linden (pictured on far right) who will compete in tomorrow's GIAA State Tournament! Go Hurricanes!🌀


For anyone who has mastered cooking, or even attempted it for that matter, you’ve likely learned that a recipe is meant to be a guide. Switching up an ingredient or adding a favorite spice can sometimes lead to an end result that’s even tastier than you could have imagined. In her Senior Speech, Malak reminded us that just as in following a recipe, navigating our life experiences doesn’t have to be straightforward. In fact, sometimes when we are brave enough to forge our own paths–be it in cooking or in life–we may discover potential that we never thought possible. Thank you Malak!


We're throwing it back to last month's GISA State Literary Competition where our Hurricanes showed up in a big way! Congrats to Caira who made the audience laugh until they cried with her Dramatic Oral Interp; Annie Reid who received fourth place honors with her essay on traditions; and Kennedy and Dovie who were a crowd favorite and awarded fourth place in Duo Interp. Well done and way to represent!


Far too often, we find ourselves burying who we truly are in our interactions with others. It serves as a way to protect ourselves and may also be a way to fit in. Gwen’s Senior Speech reminded us that there is power in embracing and accepting our own authentic selves as well as the importance of letting that person shine through when interacting with others. In the words of Gwen, “...if people don’t accept you or don’t appreciate what makes you special, give yourself permission to move on.” Thank you, Gwen!

The future’s so bright, we’ve got to wear shades*!

*Special eclipse-viewing shades, that is!😎


In her Senior Speech, Abigail invited us to think of ourselves as mosaics. Our whole selves provide a full picture of so many significant, and sometimes, seemingly insignificant moments. Thank you, Abigail, for reminding us to celebrate not only ourselves as the full and beautiful mosaic that each of us is, but to also switch our gazes every once in a while to recognize the small moments that help create the individual pieces and connections in our mosaic.

🌟Happy !🌟

Today, as we celebrate the incredible strength, resilience, and achievements of women everywhere, we can’t help but be proud and inspired by all of the bold women leaders of tomorrow here at AGS. Your confidence, strong voices, and willingness to challenge the status quo remind us every day that the future is bright!

To all our students and alumnae, may you continue to shine your light and have a positive impact in our community and the world!


“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” In her Senior Speech, Raveena shared how this Taoist quote has held true throughout her life. Time and again, when she was ready, the “teacher” showed up, including, quite literally, during her time at AGS. Thank you Raveena for sharing your story which served as a reminder that even in the face of adversity and obstacles, our own “teachers” will show up precisely when we need them.


Wishing all Hurricanes a wonderful and relaxing Spring Break!💙💛

As humans, we have so many different identities, and those can evolve and change over time. Bean’s Senior Speech reminded us of the importance of discovering and embracing our identities–each and every one of them. After all, they are what help shape us into the truly unique individuals that we are. Thank you, Bean!


Atlanta Girls’ School is honored to be a recipient of the College Board's Female Diversity Award for Computer Science Principles–the only metro Atlanta independent school to receive this recognition! Knowing how women are underrepresented in the computer sciences and STEM fields, we are so proud to play a role in making progress toward gender parity in these areas.

Ms. Hankinson and Ms. Campbell had the opportunity to celebrate Ai at the Kiwanis Club STAR student-teacher luncheon earlier this month. 🌟🌟


Being open to taking on hobbies and learning new skills can quite literally change your life. In her Senior Speech, Noor shared her experience of how taking Fiber Arts during her first AGS Winterim in seventh grade not only introduced her to a new hobby, but also taught her valuable skills that she’ll use throughout her life. Thank you, Noor, for reminding us of all the wonderful things that can happen when we are open to trying something new!
