Very close knit community. Just like any other school however, there are pros and cons to attending Wellington. If you're looking for a high school experience primarily with exciting sporting events with large crowds Wellington may not be for you. But if you're looking for a well-rounded high school experience filled with unconventional high school classes, research opportunities, connections with fantastic alumni and mentors, and fun clubs and student organizations, and lots of school pride, Wellington is the perfect place for you. For an independent school, Wellington has great diversity in terms of ethnic diversity, political views , athletic interests, and performing and visual arts students.

Our child have been at Wellington since Pre-K (a "lifer"). We have been extremely pleased with Wellington's Staff, Teachers, Learning Environment and Quality of Curriculum. Classes are small and Teachers are extremely supportive of each student. It has been our experience that Teachers and Administration are willing to go above and beyond to assist and celebrate each student's goals along the way. They have a brilliant track record of not only preparing students for college/university, but also preparing them for life and success.
Wellington has been amazing for me since my time began there in freshman year. The students are a family that supports and lifts each other up. The academics and teachers are top-notch and Wellington has a truly diverse curriculum that could be found nowhere else. Wellington is a state-of-the-art institution with successful alumni and truly a privilege to attend for high school. The only unfortunate experience for me was with the finances and the administration involved with tuition. My family is lower middle class and going to Wellington obviously put a strain on finances despite my scholarships. One day, my tuition was late, and Wellington asked me to leave for day, causing extreme embarrassment when my friends asked why my mom had showed up to pick me up in the middle of the school day. If anything at Wellington changed, it should be the level of understanding and compassion that administration has for families of small means.
