The Middle School

Awareness. Exploration. Inquiry and Investigation. Connection. Analysis. Reflection. Application. These themes form the framework for the skills and content taught in the Dana Hall Middle School.

It’s a place that stimulates intellectual curiosity and a love of learning. In varied academic settings, girls in grades 5-8 are encouraged to master skills and form habits that prepare them for life-long education.  

Dana Hall’s Middle School teachers and administrators realize the unique needs of early-adolescent girls and are sensitive to their overall development. In addition to building a strong foundation in academic skills and knowledge, Dana Hall’s Middle School program encourages students to explore and develop talents in the performing and visual arts, athletics and leadership. Self-esteem and self-confidence are valued, as are individual and group accomplishments.  

Additionally, community service, integrity and high standards of conduct are important elements of Dana’s Middle School community.
