Mission Statement

The mission of Girls First is to build character, instill a positive sense of self, and provide tangible life skills through a creative curriculum of arts exploration, academic reinforcement, and emotional learning.

Description

Girls First provides a safe, stable environment where students practice respect for self and others, exercise appropriate interactions with peers and adults, discover new skills and talents, and develop tools that will allow them to achieve greater success in school and beyond.

Description

Historically, enrollment comprised of girls mainly from Gotwals Elementary, Marshall Street Elementary, and Hancock Elementary schools of the Norristown Area School District. This year, we will be including a virtual element as well as opening up the roster to any student with reliable transportation to 1208 Green Street. We serve a diverse population of African-American, Hispanic, and Caucasian families. A significant number of the girls reside in the local Norristown community.
