Choosing WT North Hills Campus has been THE BEST decision I've ever made for my child! The strong sense of community & small class sizes allow for individualized attention & personalized challenges to optimize student growth opportunities. Every teacher recognizes my son’s strengths & weaknesses and strategically adapts lessons or problem-solving approaches to best suit him AND every other student! It is a spectacular magic to observe! Teachers are true masters of the field, attending to the whole child, not just rigorous academics. The North Campus has the best of both worlds with several outdoor learning spaces while also exploring all around Pittsburgh through the City as Our Campus program. Our Director of Equity and Inclusion endeavors to further broaden & celebrate our diverse population through cooperative multiage activities across the student body and thought-provoking conversations & trainings community-wide. We just cannot give enough accolades to WT!

I came to WT as a freshman. The environment is incredibly welcoming and I immediately became friends with my teachers. Everyone at WT is pretty friendly. There is a strong sense of community, and many people that could have difficulties finding friends elsewhere would be happy here. There's lots of clubs and it is easy to start your own club. I think that the student body is very diverse in their interests and talents, however not so much political beliefs. Overall it's been a good experience!
We relocated to WT from a school in Long Island four years ago. WT has been a true REVOLUTION for our child, thanks to the AMAZING teachers, an enlightened approach to academic support for lower school students, a beautiful and deliberate philosophy about good citizenship, and a generally friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Teachers are empowered to be creative and the classroom experience is pretty consistently engaged and engaging. We LOVE the school!
