Marlborough School, an independent, college preparatory school in Los Angeles for 530 young women in grades 7-12.
Marlborough’s Mission defines the School as “an independent, urban day school serving a diverse group of young women.” We believe a diverse faculty is essential to the Mission of the School, for the following reasons:
It is our responsibility to employ a diverse group of educators who exemplify excellence in teaching and leadership, and teach by example as well as by pedagogy.
We instill confidence and cultivate leadership potential within each student and serve as role models in inspiring them to pursue their personal best.
We arm each graduate with the skills and motivation to create meaningful connections with people throughout the nation and across the world.
We serve as role models for our students with teaching responsibilities that extend beyond the classroom and the curriculum.
Marlborough 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.
