We provide a great foundation for primary students.


Our program for grades 1 through 4 encourages our students to actively participate in their own education by developing early the varied skills and open minds that will lead to a love of lifelong learning. Wellington students are taught to push past the obvious, press their original ideas, listen well to others, consider alternatives, and continue building on a strong foundation of knowledge. They learn to work independently but also collaboratively, both with their peers and with older students at Wellington.
