Girls learning, leading, succeeding
myDANA
Dana girls are curious, collaborative, respectful and enthusiastic. They are leaders: leaders of clubs, activities, sport teams and more. They are also aware of the many types of leadership, understanding that a supporting role is just as important as taking the lead. They know that Dana Hall is a place where they can be themselves and are encouraged to be who they want to be. See what they have to say about about their school.

FAVORITE DANA TRADITION

Cabaret

My favorite Dana Hall tradition is Cabaret. Performing a "synchronized swimming" dance routine my friends made us so much closer. After Cabaret, I felt closer to my entire class.

Favorite Dana Assignment

Current Events Reports

My favorite assignments are the current events reports for my Middle Eastern Studies class. I consider myself fairly good at keeping up with current events, but I have often found myself changing my point of view after I write about a topic I previously thought I was an expert on.

Favorite Dana Class

Middle Eastern Studies

My favorite class at Dana Hall (so far!) has been Middle Eastern Studies. It covers interesting material that helps me to better understand current events, and provides me a unique perspective when so much of formal history education is focused on the West. The class has helped me break stereotypes, and I now view the world differently.

My Favorite Dana Hall Activity

Model United Nations (UN) Team

My favorite activity at Dana Hall is Model United Nations. I joined on a whim, but being a part of the team, preparing for conferences and competing, has taught me how to be diligent, adaptable, eloquent and confident. Winning individual and team awards is also incredibly gratifying!

Favorite Place on Campus

Library

My favorite place on campus is the library. It's a great place to study because of the peace and quiet, and I also can't help but work hard when surrounded by my diligent classmates.

Favorite Dana Hall Memory

Harbor Cruise

My favorite Dana Hall memory is my sophomore year Harbor Cruise. The previous year, I had been uncomfortable and afraid to approach the girls around me and stuck close to one or two friends. When the Harbor Cruise tradition came again the following year, my old friends surrounded and I was unafraid to make new ones. I was able to see how much my first year at Dana Hall changed me.
