Miss Hall's School Photo - "The best thing about MHS is how friendly everyone is and how easy it is to become part of the community. I had an abundance of new friends on the first day of orientation, and I had bonded with my teachers by the end of the first week of classes." - Current Student
Oldfields School Photo - Our renowned equestrian program takes learning out of the classroom and into the barn.
The Taft School Photo - More than a century has passed since Mr. Taft founded our school. While the world and the school have changed dramatically, his fundamental values endure: work hard, without regard for public acclaim; develop all your talents: academic, artistic, and athletic; and most importantly, give of yourself to others.
Tallulah Falls School Photo - So much of a student's success in school can be related to their peers. Our students come from all walks of life with the common goal of reaching their highest potential personally and academically. As a community, they encourage each other to greater success.
