History

One of the first all-girls boarding schools established in New England, Miss Hall's School dates its founding to 1898, when Miss Mira Hinsdale Hall began her forty-year leadership of the School. The era brought the School to the forefront of women's independent secondary education. Miss Hall's School moved in 1909 to its present location at 492 Holmes Road in Pittsfield. The School grew and flourished under the guidance of its visionary founder until August 25, 1937, when Mira Hall died suddenly while on vacation in Maine. Miss Hall was succeeded in 1937 by her niece, Margaret Hinsdale Hall.
 
Today Miss Hall's School is a nationally recognized, boarding and day independent secondary school that combines an exceptional college-preparatory curriculum with two acclaimed leadership programs, Horizons and the Girls’ Leadership Project. Miss Hall’s provides a rigorous academic program, which is enhanced by full offerings in the arts and athletics. The School currently enrolls 214 girls, representing 16 states and 26 countries.
