Leadership, internships, volunteering

视野 is deeply intertwined with your time at Miss Hall’s. The activities change depending on which grade you’re in, but the entire campus is committed — together — to making time for 视野 every single week.
澳门葡京赌网址在线从九年级开始, focusing on understanding ourselves and building community, bolstering our social and emotional awareness, and practicing interpersonal skills. 从那里, 澳门葡京赌网址在线不断向外移动, reflecting on the importance of place and designing meaningful solutions to pressing problems; and then, 在澳门葡京赌网址在线最后的岁月里, giving back to the broader community — and gaining valuable experience — through service learning, 社会行动, and tailored internship opportunities.
These internships consistently set our students apart as they go through the college application process. 你可能会, 例如, apply with a strong interest in medicine; after your time in 视野, you’ll also bring experience working in a medical setting such as a doctor’s office or hospital — and letters of recommendation from doctors and nurses.
