    Smile The most beautiful girl in a school

    Hi! We call the most beautiful girl in the college or university "School Flower".

    I wonder what equivalent term is in English if it has. Miss + the name of the University?


    Thanks!

    Re: The most beautiful girl in a school

    Hello Daffs,

    I can't think of an equivalent term in British English; "Miss XYZ School" would be understood, and might be used casually from time to time; but I wouldn't think of it as a set phrase. You might sometimes hear "the school beauty"; but it sounds a little old-fashioned to me.

    Best wishes,

    MrP

    It's not necessarily always the most beautiful girl in the school, but if you describe a girl as a "Homecoming Queen", in AmE that indicates that she's very pretty and popular.
