Mission

The Nightingale-Bamford School inspires girls to go beyond barriers.

Our vision is for Nightingale students to be joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and the courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives; in doing so, we advance equity for the betterment of all.

To achieve this mission and vision, we will educate girls’ minds and hearts by:

  • Infusing their lives with meaningful relationships;
  • Teaching them to value difference as a source of strength and means of growth;
  • Empowering them to question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience, and reason.
