Highest Percentage of Students Color
Among "All-Girls Schools", view the boarding schools with the highest percentage of students of color (2021).
For several key reasons (listed below), these comparisons are intended only as informal reference points for evaluating the diversity at a school.
Defining "students of color" is not always a clear-cut issue, and schools sometimes use slightly differing definitions when reporting data.
Boarding school populations can reflect regional populations (naturally, boarding students would still rather be closer than farther to their families) - it will be natural for schools in less diverse regions to have a less diverse student body than schools in other areas, and this should not reflect poorly on the school in any way.
