A Message from our Middle School Principal

Welcome to the Viz Middle School!

I absolutely love my job here at Viz, and more specifically, I love the all-girl environment that I am fortunate to work in every day. Having taught in both coed and all-girl schools, I can honestly say there is no denying the all-girl advantage that Viz offers to students in Grades 6-8. I see the proven benefits day in and day out, so much so, they are the norm.

Why all-girls? The National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS) has identified the top ten benefits of an all-girl school environment, and the Viz Middle School checks all the boxes on this list:

10. Inspirational Environment
9. Academic Achievement
8. Builds Self-Confidence
7. Develops Leadership Skills
6. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)
5. Dedicated to How Girls Learn
4. Higher Aspirations
3. Excellent Mentoring
2. Prepares Girls for the Real World
1. All-Girl Schools Allow Girls to be Themselves!

This doesn’t just fit Viz’s mission academically, but also spiritually as it supports our founder St. Francis de Sales’ quote of, “Be who you are and be that well in order to give glory to the Divine Artist whose handiwork you are.”

I invite you to learn more about how our Viz Middle School will benefit your daughter!

Blessings,

Angie Jung
