Student Life

A Day in the Life

What is a typical day like for a Miss Hall's student? Olivia's Monday looks pretty busy, but with our daily schedule there is plenty of flex time, free time, and time to connect with students and teachers. This is an example of what a student's schedule might look like on a typical Monday.

A Monday in the Life with Olivia '18 (and others!)

7:00 Wake up and get dressed - lots of freedom within the dress code!

7:45 Breakfast with friends, review Spanish verbs. Leave a few minutes early to get to Linn Hall.

8:30 Computer Science with Dr. Himes.

9:25 Advanced Algebra II. Matrices, here we come!

10:50 Modern Middle East with Dr. Alexander; it's discussion-based, so I can ask lots of questions.

11:45 Lunch with friends - so many options, but today is pasta bar!

12:30 Community Meeting - the whole community comes together - faculty, staff, and students - for announcements and updates. I love when the whole school is together!

1:10 Spanish with Sra. Nicholson - I finish my test early and spend the rest of the period in the Student Center studying. 

2:35 English class with Dr. Schutzman. Connecting "Othello" to "The Tempest." I love my Shakespeare class!

3:25 This is when the school's music ensembles meet. I am a member of Grace Notes - our a capella group!

4:30 School day is done (just kidding). Onto volleyball practice!
Sports at Miss Hall's are split into trimesters, so fall for me is volleyball, winter is the musical, and spring is equestrian. 

5:30 After practice or rehearsal - time for friends and dinner!

7:30-9:00 Each night of the week is designated for Study Hall. This is a great time to work on homework, study for tests, or meet with my friends for group projects. 

9:05 Time to grab a quick bite in the Dining Room. Tuesday nights feature different weekly activities, like a bonfire and s'mores in the Quad or game night in the Student Center. On some nights, we have a hall party, or just have fun in the dorm!

Thursdays means Horizons, our experiential learning program at Miss Hall's. It also means the entire school day changes: sophomores, juniors, and seniors spend the morning off-campus, volunteering and interning at roughly 75 sites throughout Berkshire County, while freshwomen hold down the fort on-campus as we dive into a variety of fun and engaging Horizons projects. 
"I've had amazing teachers who have pushed me and have a love for their classes. Every single teacher has played a part in my life and in shaping who I am today." - Cely
"I like politics, so I joined the Model U.N. I'm also in Cooking Club, which is more relaxing. You can join any club, no matter your skill level, and you make connections with students who share the same interests. Being in a club here is just like being in a family." - Erica
"Students often go off-campus. There are local trips to see movies, visit art museums, or get frozen yogurt, and longer trips to places like th Holyoke Mall and New York City. I appreciate that weekends are fun at Miss Hall's." - Sueann
