Perhaps one of the things we have valued the most about our daughter attending Havergal, is the friendships she has developed there. Prior to our daughter entering Havergal, like most parents, we had concerns over whether she would fit in, and whether the size of the student body would cause her to get lost in the crowd. Our daughter knew only one other student in her grade before she arrived at Havergal, and naturally we were worried about whether she would easily connect with her classmates and other girls in the school. Our fears were quickly assuaged when our daughter developed several close friendships within weeks of her entering Havergal, as the school does an excellent job of integrating new students and helping everyone feel as though they are welcome and valued. Over the years we have come to know many of our daughter's classmates and friends from school, and have learned that they are polite, engaging, like minded girls who are positive influences on our daughter.
