As a school for girls, Dana Hall provides female students with a particularly advantageous environment for both education and self-development.</h2><h4 style="line-height: 15px; font-weight: bold; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 40px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; border-collapse: collapse; color: #66; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; ">2010-11
