Founded in 1881, Dana Hall School in Wellesley, Massachusetts, is an independent boarding and day school for girls in grades 6-12.
Placing emphasis upon sound academic education and the preparation of each individual for college and for life, the School balances exposure to new ideas and the challenge of analytic and creative thinking with concentration on the development of self-esteem, leadership, and respect for others. As a school for girls, Dana Hall provides female students with a particularly advantageous environment for both education and self-development.
Our experience is one of regret. Wish we never sent our daughter there. Lack of culture of kindness and respect, which results in unhealthy, intolerant, unfriendly, and clicky culture. Lack of leadership from the staff and the way the school is run. DH is always behind the curve and trying to keep its head above water in all regards. Their terrible handling of the Covid situation got a lot of parents angry and walking away from fundraising. Communication is non-existent and void of any meaning. Don't waste your time and money there.
