I chose Miss Hall’s School because of the academic opportunities and extra-curricular activities. I also chose the all-girls environment, and I am so happy I made this decision because I feel I am able to voice my opinions and be my authentic self.
I love blue/gold events at Miss Hall’s. I really enjoy the competition between the two teams. I remember when the blue team (my team) won the year-long competition at the end of my freshman year, and I will never forget the roars and cheers in the room, celebrating the win.
Michelle Obama, because I am inspired by her role as an advocate for girls’ education and physical activity. I think she is an incredible role model. If I were to meet her, I would like to hear about her journey to becoming who she is today.
From Nantucket, MA "I come from a small town where there aren’t a lot of nationalities represented. I love that Miss Hall’s is a very international community where people from all over the world come together to share cultures and ideas."
I chose Miss Hall’s because of the joyful and inclusive environment that I felt the moment I walked through the doors. I also loved the fact that Miss Hall’s is an all girls school and that you are taught how to be a strong woman in today’s society.
I love being a member of the Design Club. In middle school if there was a school event, the poster would be made by an adult but at MHS the students make the posters. At MHS we are so much more than just students, we are creators, thinkers, and leaders.
I would have lunch with my great grandmother. I never met her but I have heard so much about her. She was a strong-willed and independent woman who held her own. I would like to have lunch with her because I would like to hear about what it was like to be an independent woman eighty years ago.
From York, PA "Miss Hall's has given me so many opportunities to grow and also to make mistakes. I think coming into a totally new environment, where everyone was as invested in my growth as a person educationally and as a person has really made me think of young womanhood in a totally different way."
My favorite on campus activity is meal times. I enjoy catching up with my friends and talking about what’s going on in their lives. I also enjoy meeting new people! I try and sit with new people whenever I can and I love getting to know people in the community better over a good meal.
Benazir Bhutto because she was absolutely fearless and I have so many questions for her. She was the first female leader of Pakistan (and highly controversial). She fought for a new, democratic Pakistan during a time when dictatorship and tyranny ran supreme. All of the odds were against her yet she persisted and she went on to be elected Prime Minister of Pakistan twice. She recognized the importance of using her voice.
Taylor Swift. She’s not just my favorite music artist, but also a role model. Her songs started to influence me when I was just ten years old, her songs and her life experiences not only accompanied my darkest times but also shaped who I am today. I appreciate her so much and I would love to have lunch with her to express my gratitude.
I chose Miss Hall’s because of the small community. Everybody is familiar with each other and that helps us to continue to build friendships. We are also able to maintain small class sizes which are extremely beneficial to my learning.
From Pittsfield, MA "I have made friends from around the globe, an opportunity I did not think I would ever have. Miss Hall’s has become a part of my life and I couldn’t imagine not walking through the doors everyday and seeing my friend’s faces."
I chose Miss Hall’s because I wanted a learning environment that would support me but also teach me independence. I enjoy the small classes because they give me one on one time with my teachers, which is something I also value.
My favorite tradition is the Blue/Gold Days. The school really shows their school spirit and we all come together and play some fun games. No matter what team you’re on, (I’m biased to Gold) you will be accepted immediately and become part of a family.
It sounds cliche but I would choose to have lunch with my mom. I always love going out to eat together and exchanging our meals halfway through to keep things interesting. We always have an exciting time and share many laughs.
