Welcome to Hanger Hall!
Hanger Hall opened its doors in the fall of 1999 after a two-year research endeavor lead by our founder, Howard Hanger. Since its first day of opening, Hanger Hall has been focused on providing a rich and nurturing setting in which young women may begin to discover and take pride in who they are and who they are becoming. That kind of discovery happens best in community, where people know each other, respect each other and encourage each other.
Hanger Hall is a unique community. We are one of fewer than ten schools in the United States devoted solely to middle school girls. We feel that this emerging time of life merits extraordinary attention; and it takes a community of parents, teachers, friends and family to give what is needed. Our Middle School community is just that, a community of learners who share a love of learning and a willingness to discover new ideas. These experiences and the guidance provided by our faculty help to sharpen the skills necessary for success, both at Hanger Hall and beyond. Students use real-world issues to develop and hone the key skills of academic literacy in order to become thoughtful, creative, and collaborative thinkers and doers. Their experiences here prepare them for positions of leadership in the 21st century.
From the moment you walk in the door you will feel the genuine warmth the whole school exudes. We welcome the chance to meet your daughter, your family and to introduce our community to you. Take a tour of our website, and please do not hesitate to call or come by for a visit. I trust that you will soon discover that what sets Hanger Hall apart are our students, our community, our faculty, and most importantly, our focus on nurturing the whole child.
