HANGER HALL a school for girls in Asheville N C
Hanger Hall is a unique community. We are one of less than ten schools in the United States devoted solely to middle school girls. We feel that this emerging time of life merits extraordinary attention; and it takes a community of parents, teachers, friends and family to give what is needed.
Dear Prospective Hanger Hall Families,
Thank you for taking the time to visit our Hanger Hall website. You most likely found yourself here as you are researching middle school options for your daughter. No doubt you have begun to experience the thrill-ride of the tween years, and it has you thinking about the type of learning environment that will be most empowering for your daughter. Beyond the academics you may be wondering about the kinds of activities that will serve to build your daughter’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
You may be looking for a school that is committed to the social emotional development of your girl. Perhaps you are curious about single-gender education. Or quite simply you may be seeking an environment that encourages your daughter to be curious, explore new adventures, discover her inner passions and gifts, all within an nurturing, happy, and safe environment.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
