In the $28 million Gelb Science Center opened in January 2004 at Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass., the emphasis is on doing science. In Andover's molecular biology course (pictured), students do original research with recombinant DNA.
With a strong mix of visual and performing arts, students have an opportunity to act in a play, learn to play anything from a tuba to a ukulele, or explore their abilities as painters, poets, singers and sculpors. There are also digital art classes for those who want to develop skills in Photoshop, video editing or other forms of multimedia.
You'll notice it the moment you walk through the front door...a welcoming community...a feeling of purpose, optimism, connection...a place where girls know they are taken seriously...a place where girls get a jump start on learning how to advocate for themselves, have influence, and lead change. This is Miss Hall's School, and we are committed to educating you differently.
Music, visual arts, theater, and dance are fully integrated into our curriculum and that means our girls are encouraged to express themselves creatively every day. We offer beginning through advanced levels in Instrumental Performance, Studio Art, Vocal Music, Music Composition, Dance, and Theater with passionate faculty members who are established artists in their own fields.
Williston promises an academic culture that respects your ability to think for yourself and gives you the right balance of structure and freedom to make the most of it. You'll be immersed in a challenging curriculum that cultivates active, lifelong learning. And with an average class size of 13 students, your teachers are truly going to know you.
