NCGS is pleased to provided our members a newly enhanced version of "The Girls' School Advantage: By the Numbers" video.
A presentation of research highlights, this five and half minute-long animated slide show helps make the case for the unique benefits of all-girls schools by providing quantitative and qualitative information from third-party experts. This video is available free of charge to our member schools as an advocacy outreach resource and electronic companion to the NCGS family of print publications.
NCGS encourages our members to share "The Girls' School Advantage: By the Numbers" through social media via the NCGS YouTube channel and to download the presentation to add to your school's website. In addition, it is an extremely effective tool for several school departments.
