Clubs, committees, SPORTS, you name it and it is GREAT at WFS. The IB Program & Academics are superb! Communication from the administration is top notch. College Counselors and Teachers reach above & beyond to help students. Lucky kids to have acquired a Wilmington Friends School education!
Review Wilmington Friends School
Wilmington Friends School is arguably the best private school in Delaware. The academics aren't only challenging, but they are widely recognized among colleges. Instead of having a distinct math, freshman, and sophomores take integrated math, which is a cumulation of every different type of math. This sets the foundation for what you want to take junior and senior year, whether it's regular, AP, or IB courses. Although the student body may not be as diverse itself, the school attitude towards diversity is always on the positive side. There are multiple clubs & committees to ensure diversity is not overlooked in the school, and outside the school. The teachers are always available after class, and you are able to communicate with them at any time if extra help is needed. The sports aren't the best in the world, but the community is there. Every sports team supports each other in failure and success, this includes JV and varsity.
Retweet the last few reviews… Strongest feature is amazing teachers (there are some bad, but thats the same anywhere). Also fantastic physical space with beautiful classrooms and theater. Biggest weakness is sloppy administration which leads to arbitrary and uneven treatment of student issues. Also leads to nervous students who take out insecurity on each other making for a harsh, mean social scene.
