    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.
    I am a parent and my son will be attending Wellington..hopefully.
    My son attended a private and public school. I have interviewed with several schools and we know, The Wellington is where my son needs to be.
    The staff is very caring with my son and also they have been very accomadating with me . I'm an business owner and know my son will 100% benefit with Wellington. My son attended a summer school Art class, here. I was very impressed with the Art Instructor and the very kind , parents and children. I also
    Like their willingness to always assist.
    Thank you, Wellington. Look forward to my son attending.
