  • I’m a graduate of MPS,, akaFarmington in my day. It was one of the best experiences of my life. My closest friends are from Miss Porter’s. The education I received was phenomenal; I went on to Columbia and a PhD program in Neurobiology. I am still an ardent fan of my alma mater and constantly impressed by the improved facilities and fantastic teachers they attract. As we girls will always say, “Farmington’s our home!”
  • Professionalism mixed with cordiality. One could tell that, with that environment, the girls are off to a great head start career wise.
