Atara Girls High School
WHO ARE WE?:

Atara offers a college preparatory academic and cultural experience where girls thrive in a collaborative, interactive and intellectually challenging environment.

Our classes are interactive, skills-based and cultivate a passion for learning, critical thinking and personal integrity.

We offer teachers monthly professional development opportunities in addition to one-on-one support from an administrator once a month, or more if desired/needed.
