I came from a large public school, and coming to Wardlaw-Hartridge was probably the best decision I could have made. The small student body means that its a close, tightly knit, very supportive community. I always feel like everybody is supporting me and that I am encouraged to reach out past my comfort zone. The small class sizes have allowed me to work closely with the teachers, all of whom go above and beyond to ensure the students succeed.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying is simply not tolerated at WH, and the administration is very prompt in dealing with problems. There isn't really much bullying to begin with, since the community is so close knit and supportive.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The administration has the best interests of the students at heart and regularly sends emails to keep everyone informed.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers work very hard and truly want the students to succeed. They are always willing to talk to you outside of class and answer any questions you may have.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
The homework can be heavy if you have a large course-load. From class to class it's a good amount. The teachers are also very understanding if you have conflicts and will readily give you an extension if you really need it.




- a
Wardlaw-Hartridge has become a second home for me over the past twelve years. I always feel welcome to walk into a teacher's classroom during a free period, and go over subject matter or continue a discussion from class. The small class sizes are only an added benefit that enhance and make the teacher-student relationship exceptionally unique and meaninful. Wardlaw-Hartridge is a place where peers and faculty interact to form a truly supportive and welcoming community.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
There is no bullying at Wardlaw, and if there was it wouldn't be tolerated. No question about that.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I can't imagine that Wardlaw doesn't support students with learning differences. I know that the counselor is well equipped to do this. Yet I have no direct experience with the issue.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Everyone is involved. The headmaster is a wonderfully approachable person with a lot of experience with children of all ages. Dealing with the admissions office was very pleasant and easy.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school STATES that it emphasizes the development of character, which is quite rare. How they do it is a marvel of subtle social engineering (to use the term in a positive way). Students have each other's back and are supportive of one another. There are no outcasts here. The school is an open environment that helps build trust, responsibility and independence. I saw this as soon as I came to visit.
