Review Excerpt:

What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?

"Miss Porter's is not just an all girls school, it's a school where girls find out who they are and what they can achieve, particularly as women. You enter the school with a few interests and some talent, and you leave the school with passions and new-found abilities and confidence that will carry you through in the years to come. The school creates a small community where girls become the leaders and realize their full potential. Porter's not only gave me an incredible education, but it also gave me a confidence that I don't think I could have gotten anywhere else. The school environment at Porter's encourages students to want to challenge themselves- on the fields and courts, in the classroom, and in the community..." - Miss Porter's School alumni, Class of 2001
