Independent schools offer value for your money. They make every effort to make their offering available to a broader demographic by their financial aid/merit awards. Admittedly, not everyone who qualifies receives an award; resources are competitive. However, for parents making the investment in their child, the value of the offering cannot be denied. Schools also work in partnership with families; they do not replace families. WCLA offers families a quality education, recommendations for reinforcement of in-class learning, which can be supported at home, and are a complement to their parenting. An investment in a child's education has immeasurable rewards that are far-reaching and long-lasting.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
