Visit WCDS

Loving school at WCDS means embracing risk and curiosity and speaking with a voice truly heard. Bring your family to take in our campus, interact with our faculty, students and alumni, and try your hand at learning differently. 

We are pleased you are exploring an independent choice for your child’s elementary education.

While our website provides much information, we strongly encourage you to visit our campus in person. Observe our curious and engaged students and teachers in their classrooms and throughout our spacious campus with its grass playing field, classroom courtyard, and outdoor amphitheater. Sit in on classes that give great attention to a curriculum that matches the optimum times for learning within a child’s first ten years.
