Marlborough School, founded in 1889, is an independent, college-preparatory day school for girls in grades 7-12. The School embraces the philosophy that, for women, academic excellence, leadership skills, and confidence flourish best in an environment exclusively devoted to their education. Sitting on a verdant four-acre campus in Hancock Park, one of Los Angeles' most beautiful residential areas, Marlborough's location provides convenient access to downtown Los
Angeles as well as the small-town charm of neighboring Larchmont Village.
Marlborough School enrolls students from over 100 different public and independent elementary schools, representing over 85 zip codes in the greater Los Angeles area. Students of color represent 37% of the student body. With 56 full-time and 15 part-time faculty members, the student-teacher ratio is 9 to 1 and the average academic class size is 13. Annual contributions to Marlborough exceeded $2.7 million in 2003-2004 with an endowment of $30 million translating into the largest endowment per student among independent schools in Southern California.
