A place for boldness and creativity

澳门威利斯网站的学校是一个运动和行动、合作和承诺的地方. 我们不断创新,不断适应——既适应我们社区的需求,也适应世界的需求.

Miss Hall’s has provided, since our founding in 1898, 卓越的学术教育和发展人类经验核心价值的机会:真实性, respect, honor, and growth. 从一开始,我们的学生就成为共同利益的大胆和创造性的贡献者.

History and future

These values were embodied in our founder, Mira Hinsdale Hall, a young Latin teacher in Central Massachusetts. 20年后,美国宪法第19条修正案才赋予她投票权, 米拉·霍尔设想了一些激进的东西:一个女孩得到她们应得的高质量教育的世界.

Mira Hall in 1935

所以,在1898年,她做了一件大胆的事:她创办了一所学校. As one might expect, it wasn’t easy — according to her niece, 澳门威利斯网站"除了年轻之外,几乎没有什么资本就开始了她的冒险, 她要建一所最好的学校的决心, and the strong idealism which directed her.但是,她的智慧、坚强的意志和良好的幽默感战胜了一切:学校越来越强大.

Miss Hall’s convictions were tested early on, 1923年2月一个寒冷的早晨,学校被大火夷为平地,当时的一篇新闻报道称,“除了烟囱和浴缸,什么都没有留下。.” It would have been easy to walk away, 但澳门威利斯网站加倍下注,将毕生积蓄投入重建. 学校继续在校外上课,第二年“新”学校开学了.

我们营造一个开放可能性的环境,鼓励个人追随和探索他们的激情, take initiative and advocate for themselves, and be leaders.

澳门威利斯网站的另一个宗旨在125年的历史中定义了我们:致力于向与我们不同的人学习. A 1932 article in The Berkshire Eagle 报纸称赞澳门威利斯网站的这一与众不同之处:“(澳门威利斯网站)觉得一所从全国和世界不同地区招收学生的学校会给学生们更广阔的人生观. 她没有偏离她在1898年制定的道路. 如今她的学生来自世界各地,这一事实证明了她的想法是正确的.” They still do.

Today, 澳门威利斯网站仍然秉承着米拉·霍尔的愿景,并赋予女孩们使用自己声音的权利, be their authentic selves, and become bold, creative contributors to the common good.
