The ultimate in all female education in Baltimore, MD. A school where you may be paying for a single sex education but actually spend all of your time at Gilman's boys school across the street. Your teachers will test you harder than most college professors and you will pay more every year for the torture. A school built on a tradition of excellence through academics, athletics, and friendship. Notre Dame Prep thinks that they have the market on spring school wide gym event gatherings but one stop at Bryn Mawr on the 1st Saturday in May will tell you that our tradition is a century old and getting stronger as it ages. With their well connected and prosperous alumnae (who don't need to attach themselves to husbands because they are smart enough to make their own money), gorgeous hotties enrolled at the school and amazing achievments recognized nationwide one thing is for certain; Many will imitate but NONE can duplicate the best.

PS: Did we mention that we are eloquent too?

A town generally known for either the rich, BMW-owning, Haverford Boys School attending assholes that live in houses at least three times the size of a normal one, or the middle-class want-to-be ganstas who spend most nights hitting up wawa or getting wasted at Polo park.
On the average Saturday night, you can find a small conglomerate of the future members of AA sitting around and on the jungle gym, talking about how much they hate Havertown and then climbing into the car, soon to get their third or fourth DUI.
My pants can fit a family of 4, my shirt is big enough to get lost in, and even though I've had a great education at Coopertown I spell "boys" like "boyz." Thats right, I'm from Bryn Mawr.
