    Apostrophe usage

    I often get confused with apostrophe usage. Could someone clarify this please:

    Is the apostrophe correct in the following name of a school for girls?

    XYZ Girls' High School

    (I know of course that the apostrphe must come after the s for plurals)

    If the apostrophe usage is indeed correct, then is it mandatory or optional?

    Thank you.
