14 Parent Reviews for Emma Willard School

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

When I came to EWS at age 15, I was shy and afraid to share my opinions. Emma Willard gave me confidence and, now in college, I feel fully prepared to handle the world.

I recently graduated from EWS and I would never trade the experience that I got there for anything. Academically it was challenging and prepared me well for the demands of college. Socially my friends are my sisters and it was such a supportive environment to grow into a woman in.

As a recent EWS alum, I only have great things to say about my experience at the school. It was the perfect environment for me to grow as a student and as a young woman. I can't imagine a more supportive community of faculty and staff, and I am still in touch with a great many of them. I am quite ...  Read more

My daughter was at first not wild about going to an all girls school (coming from small town coed public middle school) but the experience turned out to be transformative. 'Emma' has a gift for bringing out the absolute best in each student - and then building on strengths in one area to give confidence ...  Read more

EW is a good school. It has a very good art program; while, the quality of other classes varies due to the teachers. A big campus with a very beautiful views (looks like a castle), right now there is a constraction going on, so in a year the school will look even more beatuful. It's a nice place to live ...  Read more

Music and arts are fabulous. Academics are fabulous - at or above college level. Quality of teachers and courses varies but you have choices so you can select well if you're savvy. Lifelong friendships made.
