Miss Hall's School Photo #2 - "The best thing about MHS is how friendly everyone is and how easy it is to become part of the community. I had an abundance of new friends on the first day of orientation, and I had bonded with my teachers by the end of the first week of classes." - Current Student
Miss Hall's School Photo #3 - Thursdays means Horizons at MHS. It also means the entire school day changes: ninth grade students immerse themselves in on-campus workshops and projects that prepare them for future Horizons work. Sophomores, juniors and seniors spend the morning volunteering and interning around the Berkshire community or leading on-campus, independent projects that shape the world around them.
Miss Hall's School Photo #4 - Step outside the classroom onto our fields, courts, and trails. Athletics at MHS allows you to compete at the highest level while building confidence and leadership skills.
Miss Hall's School Photo #5 - At MHS, we believe the arts are an instrinsic part of the human experience, and we take full advantage of opportunities in the cultural center that is the Berkshires. Students experiment with new forms of creativity, gain respect for artistic tradition, and find their artistic voice.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to attend Miss Hall's School. From the tight-knit community, to the incredible athletics program, to the amazing arts programs, I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Miss Hall's. One aspect that I want to highlight is the stellar athletics program. A misconception about many girls schools is that they have sub-par athletics, but this is not true in our case. Many of our varsity teams have made it to the esteemed NEPSAC (New England Private Schools Athletic Conference), and we are fierce competitors in every sport. Specifically, our volleyball, basketball, and alpine skiing teams have made the most appearances in the NEPSAC tournament, but every team is competitive and super fun! I loved the overall atmosphere of all the sports at Miss Hall's and I always felt welcomed and encouraged to try new sports and join new teams. There is no varsity to JV hierarchy, which can occur at some schools; often times, JV and Varsity will practice or play together. I've made some of my best friends through playing soccer here, and I will miss the positive, family atmosphere of playing sports at Miss Hall's. I love that Miss Hall`s encourages you to try new things and have fun!
