When I first came to Purnell as a Sophmore, I was scared out of my mind! It was my first time being at a boarding school, and quite frankly I didn't want to be there. The first few weeks I was reserved and quiet until my classmates and peers started to invite me to hang out with them. Sooner than later I started getting more involved with my friends and the school. I even ran for a student council officer position and ending up getting my desired position! Purnell has taught me to come out of my comfort zone because even if I fail I have a whole school of people I'm happy to call my family. They are dedicated to helping you with your individual needs and want to see you succeed. Purnell is an amazing experience I'm still embarking on and I'm sad to the end so near. I would not have it any other way!

Purnell is absolutely amazing. The school helps each girl find the very best version of herself. Purnell girls have an incredibly strong sense of self and navigate the world with poise and compassion. My daughter's classmate was just accepted into an ivy league school, and my daughter was accepted into a school she never would have gotten into without Purnell's support and guidance. She was in a difficult place when she started as a sophomore, but I'm so proud of what she's become.
The school is a great environment in many ways and the students all come from diverse accepting backgrounds with loads of stories to tell. The school provides a great education on current issues as well as interactive learning experience. However, challenging academics are seriously lacking. It is built for children with learning disabilities and while the environment is very supportive some of the rules can be very strict.
