Small class sizes are fundamental to our approach. creating deep involvement and strong one-to-one relationships between our students and the teachers who inspire them.
Our campus has 10 buildings on 30 acres. Students are outside every day and have to travel from building to building for many of their classes. In addition, many teachers use the campus as an extension of their classrooms, utilizing the stream, the network of trails, and the woods as resources for their students.
WDS is organized into three divisions: an Early Childhood Division consisting of Nursery School, Preschool, Kindergarten, and Grade 1. The Lower School Grades 2 through 6. The Upper School comprises grades 7 through 12. There are countless opportunities for students in the lower and upper schools to come together, whether it be through the WDS buddy program, school celebrations such as the Harvest Festival, or school productions such as the annual musical.
The WDS Library is at the center of academic life. The library prioritizes and promotes a strong culture of reading. A strong emphasis on reading aloud to all ages of our student population furthers this positive connection to books. Our library collection is eclectic and current so as to meet the needs and interests of all of our students and it is of the utmost importance to the librarian to know each student.
