Girls’ High School Mt. Lavinia was started in 1924 with a few students and a few teachers as an English girls’ school. By 2012 after 88 years the school has grown to be a prominent girls’ school in the country with over 2700 students and a staff of over 100, with classes from primary school up to A/L with many extracurricular activities.
We at Girls’ High School believe that, children are born with a wealth of talents and their potential for development is unlimited if these talents are identified, nurtured and guided along proper channels.
