The Waverly School Reviews

Waverly is a unique gem among the dozens of schools in the San Gabriel area. It offers both a developmental and college preparatory (yes those things can and do co-exist) for students in preschool through grade tweleve. It is an ecclectic community of students, parents, and teachers. It is not for kids who need grades to motivate them. Students who are creative, intelligent and self motivated will do well here. Think small liberal arts college as opposed to huge university. That is the vibe of this wonderful school!

Waverly is an amazing school! The students are very inclusive and welcoming to everyone and teachers are very dedicated and knowledgeable. Overall an amazing place to learn.
I have been at waverly for two years now and I love it! Everyone is very welcoming and kind, the teachers truly care about you and your wellbeing, and there's no social hierarchy. Everyone can be who they are without fear of judgment.
