Wooster School 5

Wooster's an awesome place. I graduated in 2011, but my younger siblings still go there. The social environment is very relaxed and judgment-free (people at Wooster love weird people). Academically, students are able to pursue whatever their primary interest may be or take a range of varied, interesting classes. The teachers are warm, friendly people who deeply care about the students on a personal level as well as on an academic level. In my experience, the teacher's don't LET you have a hard time. They make sure that you get all of the individual attention you need to grasp the sometimes-quite-advanced material. I went into college VERY prepared academically and socially. Overall, Wooster's a very caring, warm community with great teachers and a lot of individual attention. I'd recommend it to anyone. One last thing: The comments below about the increasing presence of Christianity on campus is the opposite of the truth, although they were posted in 2006. The campus is filled with people with very liberal tendencies and most students DO NOT participate in any sort of religious activity. The on-campus Reverend is VERY progressive and accepting in his views. No indoctrination.

We moved our kids here from one of the supposedly 'excellent' public schools near by three years ago and couldn't be happier. Their development, both academically and emotionally, has been wonderful to watch. We didn't originally think of sending our children to a private school, but the results in them have made the sacrifices worth it.

Wooster has been everything we hoped and expected it to be. Small class sizes, wonderful student teacher relationships and no place to hide. Our child join the school mid year in 8th grade and has gone from strength to strength. She loves the school and has transformed from an average to outstanding student.

Wooster truly promotes 'community' at their school. They instill a love for learning and teach the kids to care for each other.

Our child has been a student here for 3 years. Although our town is noted for its excellent public schools, our child did not receive much attention there - she is neither a super gifted student or athlete or a child in need of help. She has blossomed at Wooster - academically and has been encouraged to particpate in musical and athletic endeavors. She has gained so much confidence. A wonderful nurturing school with great academics and other offerings. To be sure, it is a financial sacrifice but - we feel - well worth it.

Before you accept all that is said about this school dig a little deeper. We were not happy with our experience at Wooster.

My son is in his third year at Wooster School. The teachers' enthusiasm and excellence is unmatched in the public schools. New administration -- division heads this year and headmaster next year will only help this school. This is a school for the 'good kid' and the curious kid -- small, intimate, and intense. Check out the year abroad program!

Having tried the Danbury public school system and moving my daugther to Wooster I have seen her grow, blossom, learn and love school. I can't say enough great things about this school and wish all kids in America could have this educational opportunity.

I agree with all the positive comments posted here. We hail from a highly touted Westchester suburban public school district, where we pay exorbitant taxes, but found that the curriculum at our local public school was somnolent, lacked creativity and academic challenges for students on the upper end of the academic bell curve. After spending 4 years at our local public school, we transferred to Wooster and have witnessed remarkable changes in our children. The curriculum at every level is cutting edge, creative, challenging. The student body is diverse. Though it took us a while to get around the idea of paying so much for private school tuition, we feel every penny is well spent, and now forgo vacations and such. Wooster does have an Episcopalean background, but it is very respectful of non-Christian religions. If you are looking for excellence in education and not a test mill, come to Wooster.
