We help develop the essential habits and attitudes of world-ready citizens. Our classes are small and individual attention is the norm. While the program is structured, our teachers are skilled in differentiated instruction to help each student learn in a way that speaks to his or her strengths and readiness.
Wellington’s educational approach emphasizes active learning and true understanding as opposed to surface textbook memorization. We provide opportunities for each student to explore a variety of subject areas and discover their individual passions. The curriculum challenges students with authentic application, preparing them for a lifelong approach to critical questioning and creative problem-solving. We encourage risk-taking in the classroom and beyond as Wellington provides students a safe environment in which they can learn from meaningful failure and then develop the resiliency, courage, and grit to try again and succeed.
Wellington provides a vibrant, forward-thinking learning environment with a
that actively seeks and supports diversity.
Each member of that community looks after and respects one another, collaborates and interacts, and
When they are brave enough for the search, they are poised to achieve their greatest potential.
Memorization and recitation may have their place, but Wellington prepares students for the unpredictability of the future by nurturing their inquisitive, innovative, and resilient natures.
