Wakefield School has offered a first rate education to our two grandchildren.
One is in the lower School, the other in the high school. We are retired
educators, elementary, middle, high school and college level. A Wakefield
education will leave our grandkids a strong base to sail through the rigors
of a good university. W.S. offers a well-balanced curriculum enhanced by a
wide offering in theater and the arts in general. The excellent Head of School, both current and past,are hands on. The excellent professional teachers are
kind, empathetic, and well-prepared to work with bright students. Student
teacher ratio is low, allowing for extraordinary one on one attention to academics as well as love of learning. This school is an investment in each
student’s future. It’s worth the cost! Professor and Mrs. Clifford Chieffo

I am a recent alumni of Wakefield School, I constantly thank my parents for making the decision to send me to Wakefield.

1. Uniquely, Wakefield has both a mandatory literature class and a composition class. I guarantee your child will not leave the school not knowing how to read critically and write thoroughly.

While the English program is unbeatable, the other programs are close behind with many electives/advanced courses to allow students to find their own individual passions. Even better, the teachers make their own courses specifically tailored to their own passions; you learn the best from someone who really knows and loves their stuff!

2. The Teachers. Besides quality, some of them have become close friends (seriously, no exaggeration)

3. Getting to know a couple dozen people very well is much more powerful than knowing five hundred barely. Furthermore, EVERY person can get involved regardless of skill level/experience, yet theater, athletics, and clubs are competitive.
Birds chirping, cows mooing, and the smell of fresh grass is what every morning consists of as I drive up the beautiful mountain to Wakefield School. In the classrooms we are challenged as not only students, but as individuals. Our courtesies, such as holding the doors for others and standing when adults walk into the room have taught us important respectable life skills for the real world. My work ethic has improved immensely and I know that I will learn something new every day. The teachers are highly educated and provide insightful knowledge which helps us blossom. I am a three season athlete and that has been nothing but an amazing experience. The social aspect is welcoming and not too overwhelming. If I had to change anything about Wakefield it would be regarding the organization. When events are planned, like prom, plans constantly change, from the date to the theme. I hope that in my final year these issues will improve.
