Girls learning, leading, succeeding

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.
