Ewha Girls' High School originates from the Ewha Hakdang mission school for girls founded on May 31, 1886 by Mary F. Scranton. The school expanded to offer college-level courses, with the college section eventually separating to become Ewha Womans University. The construction of a dormitory for staff and students was completed in 1900. The current principal Kim Hye-jeong was appointed in February 2017 as the school's 15th principal.
At Ewha Girls' High School, every student has to join a club as part of their co-curricular activities. Ewha Girls' High School has 34 clubs which can be classified into five categories — academics, performance, service, media/debate, arts/physical education.
