I have been going to Dana Hall since the middle school, and I have seen empowered young women graduate for years. Dana teaches girls how to be global thinkers, citizens, and leaders. I especially love our traditions, for the students here become as close as sisters by the time we graduate. The traditions are the most unique and interesting part of Dana, something that cannot be replicated elsewhere!
Review Dana Hall School
Love this school!! Traditions are amazing, administration can be annoying at times but overall a great experience. Makes looking at colleges hard because I don't want to leave.
My teachers have fostered a love and interest in learning. They will go above and beyond to make sure that you understand the material at hand. They use technology and our resources really well. It's great to see that I have teachers who really care about my progress.
