I went to Wooster for my middle school years. I loved the theater. I loved it loved it loved it! It was my absolute favorite thing. The theater program at Wooster however, is not cared for whatsoever. The head of the school definitely does not care for the arts. He didn't even show up to the Middle School production of "The Lion King Jr." He wants Wooster to be an athletics school, and most people go to Wooster for everything, not just sports.

However, some of the teachers at Wooster are life-changing. Like Henry Cataldo, Claire Simard, Andrea Barrett, Mike Evans, Heidi Ryan and a bunch more. The faculty is great!

Wooster's environment has changed drastically since 2016. All the teachers seem scared to death, they're gonna get fired. Certain kids are rude to each other and teachers.

When you go to a teacher or middle school dean with a problem, they don't give. a. crap. They sort of brush it aside like it's dirt. It's NOT dirt. It's a problem!

One of the best gifts I have ever been given is a Wooster education. If you are prepared to buy into a community that prizes consideration of others in the form of Self-Help, Wooster is a wonderful place to enroll. Faculty across disciplines are consistently excellent, as demonstrated by their humility and eagerness to explore alongside students. Many faculty members (especially in STEM) have conducted extensive research in their own fields, and are more than willing to share their experience with students. Student led research is integral to DLIs (Deeper Learning Initiatives, Wooster's alternative to AP courses). It was not uncommon my junior year to spend weeks worth of class time researching anything from gender bias in children to more esoteric topics under the umbrella of stats. During these times, the teacher took a back seat and encouraged us to take ownership of our learning. If we ever needed extra support, he bent over backwards to make himself available for questions.
The teachers are great, always there for advice and support! I have enjoyed my time at Wooster School, Danbury, CT. I came in Middle School and always felt welcomed by my fellow students, the teachers and the administrative staff. You should come to an open house and talk to students, you'll see what I mean. You feel at home which makes it easy to learn and my SAT reflects that. Hope this helps in your search for a private school.
