Bringing out the best in others
We believe that while everyone may not be born a leader, any student can become one. At Dana Hall, leadership isn’t about power—it’s about listening, following through, teamwork, and collaboration. Our commitment to help students learn how to bring out the best in others is one reason why so many Dana Hall alumnae take on leadership roles after graduation, where they use their skills to launch new companies, advance social justice, build effective teams, and make the world better.
Student leaders play a critical role in ensuring that Dana Hall continues to be a fun, challenging, dynamic, engaging, and active place. Whether it’s managing an athletic team, planning (and running) a school event, directing a play, serving as a class officer, or starting a club, leadership opportunities are everywhere. Our leaders benefit from a strong network of support, thanks to the training, coaching, and feedback they receive from caring adults who are committed to their success. Every other year, Dana Hall also hosts the She Sails conference—a full day of speaker presentations, workshops, and alumnae panels focused on fostering leadership skills in young women.
I support our School mission by being a community builder and hosting spaces to encourage advocacy, self and social awareness, and deepening the sense of belonging within our community.” AShleigh '22
