    Wardlaw+Hartridge is an amazing school. It provides the exact balance of academic rigor, social and emotional learning, Global awareness and community that we were looking for for our daughter. The Lower School really formed a foundation for her the achieve excellence and continue to grow each year in a stress free way. The daily environment provides structure yet also a freedom to explore and be an individual. The creations she brings home from art class never cease to amaze me as well as all the things she does in music, STEM and band. We have been with the school 7 years and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. Through the COVID pandemic, this school didn’t miss a beat. My daughter is on track to complete everything she was scheduled to academically for this year. They have found a way to keep the kids engaged regularly with their peers and their teachers without it being overwhelming. When I asked my daughter what she loves most about W+H she said the Teachers & community!

    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!
    The Wardlaw+Hartridge school is truly an exceptional place. The school environment is one of community, diversity and an amazing commitment to learning and excellence in every respect. Our students are accomplished in so many ways - academic accomplishments, well rounded by involvement in an array of extracurricular activities, a commitment to community service, fine college acceptances and most importantly being good citizens.

    The school combines the best traditions of a liberal arts education with integrating the most updated educational and technology developments. The faculty truly value each student as an individual and care deeply that students succeed and achieve their best.

    Wardlaw+Hartridge also has first rate facilities, including a Performing Arts Center and in the athletics area.

    I submit that there is no better investment that parents could make not only for their children's education but for their entire future than Wardlaw+Hartridge.
