The Roar provides glimpses into life at Dana Hall School from multiple perspectives.
Why is this blog called The Roar?
Our Dana Dragons are fierce, and by extension so are the faculty and staff members who teach and mentor them. They expect students to dive in deeply, think creatively and seek out inspiring challenges – just as they do themselves. Dana Hall School is a community of dynamic doers and dreamers. Sometimes we like to roar.
Dana Hall School
Founded in 1881, Dana Hall School in Wellesley, Mass., is an independent boarding and day school for girls in grades 5-12 (boarding begins grade 9). 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.
