    I am extremely happy with the education my kids receive at Wardlaw + Hartridge. The entire community works hard to prepare the kids for college and for the world ahead of them. They prepare them to be critical thinkers and to be innovative. My son, now at Carnegie Mellon University, attributes his success to the education he received at Wardlaw + Hartridge. My daughter is challenged every day, in academics, clubs and sports. After nine years at Wardlaw + Hartridge, I can say, without any reservations, that this school is an excellent place for students, who want to learn and be challenge! A great educational institution!

    I feel that I've accomplished my goal of getting into a good college because of Wardlaw+Hartridge's strong academic and college preparation departments. I feel well prepared for my future endeavors due to the work ethic that this school helped me establish. The diversity within the school is another stellar aspect, allowing me to talk to many people from all walks of life.
    My kids are studying at Wardlaw for the last 10 years. The teachers, the school community and culture is what makes us come back to this school every year. The school is constantly trying to improve itself and values parental involvement greatly. The school environment is very encouraging and instills in children, a love for learning, arts and sports. The school is less competitive when compared to other comparable private schools which could be a positive or negative thing based on your priorities.
