Many things make Stuart Hall different from other schools: the camaraderie, the bridge between faculty and students, the sense of familial community, and the history that surrounds us.

It's like this: When I go to school, my heart gets bigger and bigger and bigger, and then when I leave it gets smaller and down to its normal size.

Wyatt '26

Stuart Hall fosters an accepting atmosphere where differences are celebrated, and a close connection between students and teachers is a special hallmark.

Our Expertise


Creativity In Education

"While SAT scores and high school transcripts are undoubtedly important, it's becoming clear that creativity is no longer just a useful attribute–it is a crucial skill." Middle School English and Spanish Teacher Kelsey Jaggers


Experiential Education

"As much as our society embraces technology and our experiences become increasingly 'virtual,' there remains no substitute for engaging an experience firsthand." Upper School History Teacher Tim Layne

Life Skills - Not Just Actor Training

"Why take theatre classes when you have no interest in becoming an actor? The answer is easy: you learn real-world skills that are applicable to many disciplines." SHS Theatre Director Jeremy West
