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.
