    "I must disagree with the student who feels there's a certain type of Emma student. I found it diverse in every way, including socio-economically, although perhaps what's even better is that I wasn't aware when I was there of the socio-economic diversity-- meaning I didn't find divisive cliques. I think different students will walk away with different opinions of their experience. But certainly the administration, the faculty & the network of alumnae care deeply about this school. They aim for academic excellence AND a nurturing environment. As an alumna, I have to say it's rare to find a school that feels like a sisterhood. And the school's history is a bonus: it's the oldest girls' school in the country. It's special to be a part of that."

    "Attending Emma Willard was one of the best decisions I ever could have made. Originally I was absolutely against the idea of attending an all girls boarding school. It sounded like the worst possible thing on earth to a city-bred teen. However, over the next four years Emma opened my eyes to who I could be as a woman. She allowed me to develop not only my academic mind but also my character. I have created life long friendships of which I am so grateful to have made. The teachers at Emma have created a lasting impression on me. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable and have a deep rooted care about the girls, they are also often more educated and better all around teachers than my professors in college (I attend one of the prestigious "40 Colleges That Change Lives"). Now in college I often look back on my times at Emma and think of how I would give up almost anything to go back. Emma is not just a high school. Emma is an experience. I truly grateful for my days there and I could not imagine my life without Emma."

    "As a former student of Emma Willard I would like to give, what I feel, is a more honest review of the school. I was at Emma for two years before transferring to public school. My years there were stress filled, and most of my peers were battling some level of depression. Don't get me wrong, I do think that Emma is the right place for a certain type of person, the "emma girl". But if you are not the super peppy, smart, and sporty type, you will probably end up miserable and desperate to leave. Recently, there were some unpleasant political issues that reflected major student dissatisfaction and discrepancies in the faculty. Most of the teachers I had were subpar, but the quality of the education you receive there is undeniable, and I have no worries about being prepared for college. The student body, despite being ethnically diverse, is really more or less homogeneous in terms of socioeconomic status. My parents were fed up with the lack of faculty support, and did not feel that it was worth the 29000. In public school the education is not equal to Emma, but I feel the workload is far more appropriate for someone my age and teachers are far more supportive."

    "Our daughter's four-year experience as a day student at Emma Willard has been nothing but positive. She has developed into a capable and caring young woman, with the intelligence and communication skills necessary for college, as well as for working in an adult world. We had hoped that a superior education offered at the high school level would build the best possible educational foundation for her. . . . and we were right ! We have complete confidence that she will find college-level work to be not unlike what she has already been experiencing at Emma. Every teacher she has had has been a valuable part of an all-too-short four years at a most wonderful school. We will all miss our daily contact with the school and all of the teachers and staff that we have all come to love. There are few choices in life that are so clearly right, so completely correct from start to finish. Our choice to enroll our daughter at Emma Willard will always be remembered as one of those rare events in our lives where everything worked out better than we ever expected. Our eternal thanks for being able to be part of it all !"

    "The decision to attend Emma Willard has been hands down the best decision I have made in my life yet...and is projected to be my number 1 for a very long time. The work is challenging, however the teachers present the material in innovative and captivating ways. The friends I made at Emma Willard were not just friends, they were sisters. I was a day student, however most of my friends were boarders. At Emma Willard you interact with people from many cultures with many different backgrounds and ideas and it is captivating. Emma Willard does not just prepare you for college, it prepares you for life. I absolutely loved every second I had at Emma and if I had the opportunity to make the decision to go to Emma all over again, I would do it in a heart beat."
