School Notes:

    • Tucked into the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, Miss Hall's School is one of the foremost college-preparatory schools for girls in the country. Established in 1898, the School combines a traditional college-preparatory curriculum with two innovative, nationally acclaimed programs – Horizons, a weekly off-campus, experiential learning opportunity, and the Girls' Leadership Project, which transforms the School into a leadership laboratory. Approximately 190 boarding and day students in grades nine through twelve come from 20 states and 18 countries. The student body is diverse with 23 percent of the students being of color and 20 percent being international. Approximately 50 percent of the students receive some level of financial assistance to attend the School. The School sits on 80 acres in Berkshire County and employs 80 women and men who teach, administer the program, and secure and maintain the buildings and grounds. Governance of the School is through a 28-member Board of Trustees comprised of alumnae and current and past parents. There are over 3,500 alumnae living in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and 55 countries around the globe.
