[×]

AdmissionsQuest school reviews function as a legitimate resource for families and students researching independent schools. Posting a review is limited to students and parents/guardians who attended or had a student attend the school within the last three years. Our goal is to have reviews provide feeling and insight into the school experience. Each reviewer is limited to one post at each school.

To insure appropriate tone and content, we require each author to adhere to the following guidelines:

Be:

Honest
Thoughtful
Consider the review questions
Appropriate in tone; criticism is appropriate; bashing and ranting is not
Limit your review to only your experience
Well written with good spelling and punctuation

Avoid:

Personal Attack
Institutional Disparagement
Opinion presented at fact
Any false information
Using or disclosing your personal information

Examples of inappropriate comments include but are not limited to any writing that seems libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else.

AdmissionsQuest will not post any statement containing a threat of violence against a person or any other remark that would tend to be seen as intimidating or intends to harm someone. AdmissionsQuest maintains final editorial control over all submitted reviews. Reviews must evince appropriate tone and content. All submissions become the property of AdmissionsQuest which reserves the right to determine publication.

History

Tucked into the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, Miss Hall's School is one of the foremost college-preparatory schools for girls in the country. Established in 1898, the School combines a traditional college-preparatory curriculum with two innovative, nationally acclaimed programs-Horizons, a weekly off-campus, experiential learning opportunity, and the Girls' Leadership Project, which transforms the School into a leadership laboratory.

Approximately 250 boarding and day students in grades nine through twelve come from 19 states and 23 countries. The student body is diverse with 25 percent of the students being of color and 34 percent being international. Approximately 50 percent of the students receive some level of financial assistance to attend the School.

The School sits on 80 acres in Berkshire County and employs 80 women and men who teach, administer the program, and secure and maintain the buildings and grounds.

Governance of the School is through a 26-member Board of Trustees comprised of alumnae and current and past parents.

There are almost 4,000 alumnae living in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and 55 countries around the globe.

Miss Hall's School is accredited by the New England Association of Independent Schools and Colleges and is a member of the Association of Schools in New England, the National Association of Independent Schools, the National Coalition of Girls' Schools, and the Secondary School Admission Test Board.
