Aberdeen Hall: Past, Present and Future

In 17 years, Aberdeen Hall has grown from a school of 70 students in rented facilities to a school of over 700 on a stunning, purpose-built campus.

Every building on our campus was funded by our community of parents and grandparents. From Aberdeen Hall’s early days when parents painted walls and drove school buses to the construction of the inspiring campus that we have today, our school is truly a school built by us and those who came before us.

This is an extraordinary story of growth and success – accomplished through the passion, determination, and philanthropy of our families. Together, we are creating a legacy for our children.
