Message from the Principal

GLOW Students & Families,

As we wrap up the end of 1st semester, and anticipate the new year ahead, we find ourselves both in reflection of our time spent together and in anticipation of all that is to come. Thank you for continuing to partner with us as we work to provide unique opportunities to prepare your daughter to graduate from high school, go to college, and be successful in whatever she wishes for her future.

Reminder: Friday, December 16, is an Early Release Day, with student dismissal at 1 PM. There is no school the week of December 19th or the week of December 26th. As we head into the new year, please note we will welcome back students on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

Be sure to read through and secure your free tickets to the Thalian Hall Community Theater's upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz, updates about student initiatives, and lots of photos!

However your family spends this holiday season, we wish you rest, safety, good health, continued traditions, and time spent with the ones you love!

Wishing you all a great week ahead!

Kate B. Tayloe



High School Exam Schedule

High School students will received their Individual Exam Schedules in Leadership Advisory; however, we wanted to include additional information here that may be helpful for parents.

  • All high school courses include a final exam.
  • Some high school exams are a state mandated EOC, some are teacher made final exams, and in some instances students are completing projects this week that will count as their exam grade.
  • Students are required to attend school for all exam periods; however, if exams/projects have been given previously and there is no exam scheduled for your student on a specific day, then her attendance is not required.
  • Your student's individual Exam Schedule will indicate whether or not they have exams scheduled on each exam day (December 9-16).
  • Students who miss one of their scheduled exams on December 9-14 should attend school on December 14 and/or 15th to make-up these exams.


  • Friday, December 9 - English II EOC (state mandated)
  • Monday, December 12 - 1st & 3rd Period Exams
