Parent/Guardian Visit

We encourage parents to come for a visit early in their school search process, as spending time with us is the best way to understand the WMS difference. We recommend visiting in the morning in order to best see students during their regular work cycle, but we are flexible and willing to schedule visits at any time in order to meet each family’s needs and interests.

During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to meet students, tour our campus, observe class, and speak with Laura Martin, Assistant Head for Enrollment. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss all WMS has to offer as well as to hear about your child(ren) and your hopes for their education.
