Dana Hall School Reviews

Dana Hall offered me a great high school experience and prepared me well for college. In particular, all faculty at the school encouraged me to ask for help and to consult available sources. Now in college, I find that I am better equipped than many of my peers to ask questions and ask for guidance when necessary. When I was a student, I was a tour guide for prospective students and families, and was always told by parents that they could tell I loved the school. I still speak of the school with enthusiasm and am grateful for the skills I learned.

As I finish my fifth and final year as a senior, I must say, I am so incredibly glad I chose Dana Hall. A single-sex education is such an important asset in the development of young girls, and I feel I am much more confident and have had more opportunities because of it. The academics are rigorous but don't make it impossible to succeed, and every year many students attend prestigious universities around the world.
Dana Hall School is an all girls school in Massachusetts. I am grateful for the opportunities I've had throughout my years here such as study abroads, clubs, and the college process. There are also many issues involving diversity because this school is predominantly white and wealthy girls, however, there has been a lot of work towards discussing these issues and creating more support for students of color.
