Excellent school. We sent three sons to the WMS and now have two grandchildren attending. Our 16 year old grandson has been accepted to Cornell with an early admission this September.

Great school, with a highly dedicated faculty. Perfect for the student looking for college prep, combined with a love for the outdoors. Skkiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, nature trails...education in the classroom and in nature as well!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
