I'm very proud to be graduating from a school like Wellington this coming June. I have had a fantastic experience in the Upper School, where bullying is not tolerated under any circumstances. Faculty, but most impressively students, in the Upper School are motivated to make the Upper School a cohesively friendly environment. Academically, Wellington does a fantastic job of offering intellectually challenging courses in all of the scholastic fields (humanities, STEM, fine arts, etc). On one hand it's great because I've been able to focus on my academic passions (writing and French). On the other hand it allows students who might not be interested in a certain field to take an interesting course to fulfill a particular credit. For example, I've taken Cryptography and Quantitative Analysis in order to fulfill my math credit this year. The teachers here are passionate about the subjects they teach. Students who value the rewards of hard work and education do really well here. Student academic motivation has been a problem in some cases, but it's not an overall reflection of the student-body. I do believe Wellington has prepared me for my future, and I'm happy it was a great fit.

Wellington has been a wonderful environment for our family. We are heavily involved in the school and are experienced with other independent schools. Wellington is not only an excellent academic institution that prepares each of its students to succeed in college, the curriculum is designed to cultivate creativity and individual talent. Those families who would like for their children to discover their unique potential should explore Wellington. It is a unique offering in Columbus.

All three of my children attended Wellington K-12, and we could not have had a better experience. The innovative curriculum truly prepared my children for TODAYS world, where the demands are not about what you memorize, but how you learn, communicate and collaborate. Wellington provided my children with the confidence to be their best selves, to be curious about the world, with a grounding of solid midwest values. All three have had/are having successful college experiences. All three play/ed college athletics (including Division 1). All three are out in the world engaged in meaningful, global experiences. For the better part of our time at Wellington, I was a single mom. The environment was so incredibly supportive, truly partnering with me to help me raise my kids. I am forever grateful. I am an entrepreneur/business owner for over 30 years; I have worked with many Fortune 500 leaders in my life, and I can honestly say the leadership of this school is top notch. The school continues to get better and better. I hope someday I'll have grandchildren who will have the chance to go to Wellington.

Our daughter attends Wellington, and we are so fortunate to have this school in our community. I also attended Wellington K-12. My experience had an immeasurable impact on my education and life. Wellington is and has always been a wonderful environment for the students to learn, be challenged, build confidence, and build lifelong friendships. The entirety of the experience at Wellington from the excellent academics to the innovative curriculum and community are excellent.

Our family is new to Wellington this year and I cannot say enough good things about the school. A few things that stand out are the small class sizes, the curriculum and the sense of community. When you walk through the halls you see happy, confident students. My son has learned so much in a short amount of time. Highly recommended.

Our son loves Wellington: his classroom and summer options experiences have been wonderful. We initially choose The Wellington school for its promise of an innovative, individualized learning environment. Not only have they lived up to this promise, but we have joined a true community focused on our children's learning. He has been challenged intellectually and creatively by a staff of caring teachers. At four, he talked of being at Wellington until he goes to college. We cannot imagine any other place for him to grow and learn.

We have been at Wellington for six years and our girls absolutely love it. I am amazed by the wonderful teachers, low student/teacher ratio, and the individual instruction they receive. Kids are constantly challenged by the learning in each subject. If they are gifted in math, they have the opportunity to learn from a wonderful extension teacher, but if they need extra help in reading, their classroom teacher/learning guide or the learning specialist provides that instruction. It is worth every penny we pay. I also love the attention to building character and encouragement to try new things. It is by far the best school in central Ohio!

We have a son in first grade, he started with Wellington in Kindergarten. Our primary objectives were to find a school that taught the "whole child" (character development as well as education) and a school that challenges each child to advance to their highest level possible. Those objectives are in Wellington's DNA. There are character development classes starting in Kindergarten where kids discuss and role play different social situations they might encounter. They have an opportunity to think about conflict resolution and what to do not just when you are being bullied but when you see someone else being picked on. The class size is small enough (18 students to 1.5 teachers) that education differentiation is easy to accomodate with breakout groups for kids that are advancing and those that need extra time. Best of all, when he walks down the hallway he's greeted by students of all grades (they have Senior Buddies) and teachers I haven't met before. Students are expected to be kind to each other while becoming the best student they can be. We're very happy with Wellington.

The Wellington School gives my child a higher degree of individualized attention than my local, high performing suburban school district can. You can't argue with student teacher ratios and how they impact learning: My son's class at Wellington is 1:7, our highly rated public school district he would be in a class of 23-24 with one teacher. When you have to teach to pass standardized tests at public schools, I don't believe even with the best teachers and intentions you can focus on the high achieving when you have to ensure everyone passes. Individualized, challenging but innovative curriculum is the difference that Wellington has given my child. He isn't constrained by what his grade is doing- even in lower school. He can take 4th grade math while in his classroom if he is ready for it and wants it, instead of sitting bored during lessons he already mastered. He is challenged to think and create in a way that is creating this innovative little mind. We couldn't be more thrilled with our investment in our biggest asset, our child.

My child has attended Wellington since he was 4 years old and he is now in the 7th grade. He is a kid who doesn't like the spotlight or getting noticed. Wellington is the best thing to happen to him. He has had positive encouragement, works well in groups, presents before his classmates, and has had a wide variety of teachers with different styles so has been exposed to lots of different ways of learning. He knows kids from all over the city. He is called out when he is in the wrong and encouraged when it is needed. Wellington is a great school with a strong academic record filled with adults who care about kids.

As an alum, I can say that Wellington was a remarkable place to grow up. Years later, I'm able to fully admit the impact it had on shaping me as a person - in fact, a stronger impact than even my college years. We were taught to "expect the best" - that was the motto at the time. We were expected to be well-rounded, polite, smart, and push ourselves to try new things: it wasn't odd for athletes to join the school musical or for artists to join sports teams for the first time. But Wellington was also a place where differences were celebrated, intellect was normal - not just 'nerdy,' and the individual was praised for being just that - an individual. I'm so pleased that many of the teachers are raising their children in the school, too. I highly recommend Wellington if you want to help each of your children discover and celebrate what makes them truly special. I know I did - and it has served me well in my personal life and career.

I went to Wellington from 7th grade on. I graduated from Wellington. I received an excellent education (better than my sibling who went to another private school in town). I got into the top liberal arts school in the nation, went to medical school and am now a physician in the community. Our family was not wealthy (like many of the families) so that was sometimes difficult (going to school with kids who were way better off financially), but it was not a big negative, and I would never trade the experience. I can't say anything negative about the school - I had excellent teachers the whole way, people who cared, and all my former classmates have become successful in their fields.

It was disappointing to see that only one teacher showed up in support of former students in the Lawrence dibble voyeurism case. The sense of community and family was absent from the school for those victims. Current and future parents: I would advise you to make sure instructors are qualified and properly certified, as dibble lacked a teaching license and had been fired and lost his license from a previous and similar disgusting act, which no one seemed to detect in their supposed "background check ."

My kids attended the summer camp. Some classes were well-liked, others were a bore. It wasn't worth the prices at all. The after-camp care is sub-par. The "teacher" has the kids on the playground and the only shade provided is over a picnic table. When my kids wanted to sit in the shade, she would tell them to get away. The temperature was 90+. Also, they let in some very strange kids who have serious social issues. We had to address this with the program person several times. Go to Columbus School or St Charles if you want a great private school education. Administrators are also a bit pompous.

We have three children at The Wellington School, two in middle, one in lower school. We have experienced both Wellington and the UA public schools, and are very pleased with our choice to be at Wellington. Our kids experience things they otherwise would not have in a bigger school. We've found the faculty and staff very attentive, and an extremely engaged parent community. As parents, we strongly align with the schools focus on life skills, leadership, independent thinking, and risk taking in a safe environment. We feel at home at Wellington. Our children are thriving.

I've been a Wellington parent for almost six years. After having left for a year to try the local schools, I can honestly say that Wellington challenges and supports our kids like nowhere else. Now in middle school, my somewhat timid oldest daughter has the confidence to perform on stage, join sports teams, and program robots. It's a joy to see her flourish. My independent-minded middle child is thrilled with the additional responsibilities offered in fifth grade. My youngest child is in third grade and has discovered a wonderful connection with his humorous, talented teacher. We love the authentic learning experiences at every level! Especially as compared to our homogenous public school, Wellington's environment is diverse and creative. Our children's classmates are more open-minded and less inclined to use peer pressure. Although not a small commitment, we believe Wellington is the best choice for our family for many years to come.

To everyone saying there is bullying at this school, that is a pure lie. I've been going to this school my entire life, and as a freshman now, there is little to now bullying. At all. Wellington puts a very strong hand against bullying and takes many efforts to remind students of the terrible things bullying can create. I love the teachers and people here with all my heart. I don't think I could've been put into a better environment. The teachers really care about helping students reach their full potential, and the aura of the school itself is very... "homey." I think this school is incredibly fantastic. The heads of each level of school are very good at handling problems and creating a great environment for students to learn. I love it here, and never want to leave.

To the grandparent who posted about her granddaughter coming home crying every day: It's really not worth it to finish out the school year under those circumstances. Just leave now. I am really sorry to hear about your situation and have experienced the same as a Wellington parent. You may want to reach out to St Agatha's to see if they can take your granddaughter now since they do have open enrollment. I don't think your son/daughter will be able to get out of the financial contract with Wellington but given your situation, the circumstances are extreme so maybe they won't have to pay the rest of the tuition. Good luck to you. We are not returning either because the bullying also extends beyond the Board and involves kids with 2-3 siblings and large donation families. Bringing in national experts to talk about bullying doesn't stop it. Expelling problem students stops it. While the Wellington philosophy of inclusiveness, respect, tolerance is wonderful, they really could have a tremendous school if only they would raise the bar for behavior and hold students accountable, regardless of social status or donation history. It's sad because there are otherwise so many positives here.

We have tried to address the bullying going on at Wellington and have been met with stiff resistance because of the politics at this school. Children are not coming first... fear and politics are stopping anyone at this institution from doing anything about it. The Board of Trustees should address the fact that one of their members and his daughter are keeping good people from attending and donating to the school. It's a heart wrenching and ugly scene when no one stands up for children who are being bullied. Shame on you Wellington.

Bullying is running rampart, totally unchecked and the staff refuses to deal with the situation. My granddaughter has been the target of an older child in her class and simply comes home crying every day. She is frightened to go to school....it just so happens that the girl doing the bullying is the daughter of a member of the Board of Trustees. It is a bad situation that needs to addressed. My granddaughter will be going to St Agatha's next year. We have now heard of several other children who have had similar problems in the past and have left the school.

My child came to Wellington from a suburban public school which is supposedly one of the best in the state. Wellington has exceeded our expectations. I can honestly say there is no busywork. The teachers are excellent, caring, and have high expectations. Also, after a year at Wellington, her test scores on the Ohio proficiency test were all advanced.--I cannot say enough about this incredible school.

The Pre-K curriculum is antiquated. They do the same activities year after year. It is truly lacking of any ingenuity, and it is not driven by student interest. The curriculum focuses on the Letter of the Week. Since I have worked in early education, I will tell you this is a dated practice. When our son entered the program, he could identify all of his letters and related sounds, but the Pre-K staff did nothing to foster higher level reading skills such as blending of sounds. Despite Wellington s claims, there is absolutely no differentiated instruction. It is a one-size fits all approach to education. The Pre-K staffs repeatedly assert that much is learned through play. They use this notion to justify the exorbitant amount of free time afforded to the students. By the latter part of the school year, our son s teachers were not busily preparing him for kindergarten. His instruction was limited to basically extended recess and videos.

As a former Wellington student, I often look back and regret attending this school. I'm currently in high school enrolled in one of the best public school systems in the country. However, I struggled through mathematics in my initial high school years. This was due to the lack of preparation on Wellington's part; I had to independently re-learn Algebra and the general math fundamentals. I also currently have a private tutor for English comprehension; again, Wellington's poor preparation. If Wellington costs around 20k to attend, and is known as a "college-prep" school, why in the world was I struggling in my initial high school years? Honestly, If you're looking to enroll your child to this school, think twice, because there's better options, including: Dublin, Bexley, and UA-all three are the best public school systems in Ohio. There are also prestigious boarding/private, including: Phillips Academy, Deerfield, Columbus Academy, and the Columbus School for Girls.

I am surprised to read that a student or two have negative comments regarding the Math and Science. My family has no affiliation with this school. We do have friends (both with PhD in a Math/Science field) who sent their child to Wellington for middle school from one of the top rated public schools in the area. Their reason was the Math/Science program! I agree with the writer who says it sounds like someone has an axe to grind.

I'm a Junior at Wellington (a lifer) and I've experienced nothing but the best from Wellington. The two negative reviews I see here both appear to be from eighth grade students, one who isn't interested in an independent education and the other who just has incorrect information. When I was in 7th grade at Wellington, I took Algebra I and I successfully completed Algebra II in 8th grade. This has all prepared me for the AP BC Calculus class I take today. Wellington offers AP Chemistry, AP Biology, and AP AB and BC Calculus, not to mention the robotics programs offered in all three divisions. While Wellington's arts are second to none, one simply cannot say that we do not value Math and Science. And finally, to comment on the college matriculation results, that too is incorrect. Three of my friends in the Senior class have already been accepted to Cornell and I am already meeting individually with the College Counsellor who is locally acclaimed. Wellington may not have been right for you, but I've enjoyed every minute of the twelve years I've spent here.

Our child started at Wellington in Pre-K several years ago. We have been extremely happy with the school. I was surprised to read some of the negative reviews here and I have to wonder if someone has an axe to grind. Our experience has been that the school is very responsive to the concerns of students and parents. We are not wealthy and live in a working class neighborhood in Columbus, and we have never felt that our child was treated unfairly compared to children from wealthy "big donor" families. Wellington's approach to education is very different from other local schools (public and private) and it's probably not right for every student or every family, but so far it has been right for us. If you are considering Wellington, you will probably be better off actually visiting the school instead of reading anonymous reviews on the internet.

I was a student at wellington for 3 years, and I was very disappointed. The academics are not at all impressive when compared with similar schools such as CSG, The Columbus Academy and the local Upper Arlington school system. Myself included there were 11 students leaving the 8th grade out of a mere 45. There is a massive emphasis on the arts (especially theater), while their theater director was just arrested this year. Students who excel at math and science suffer from the poor education in these departments, and many courses that are available at other schools are not offered so students have to take courses over the summer. Until this year, Algebra 1 was not even an option for the eighth grade while it is at comparable schools. The college matriculation is very poor when compared to The Columbus Academy or CSG.

This school was a massive disappointment. I've spent 9 horrible years here, and I can tell you. If you are possibly looking at this school. Forget it. If you are interested in your child getting a complete and full education, you can go to many of the close by high schools for free, and get a better education. Dublin, UA, Bexley, you name it. It's better. I am currently in 8th grade. So far, my friends and I have tallied up 9 people who are leaving this school. That's out of a grade of 45 kids. The administration is horrendous. I've had a different head of my school division every year except for once. Another thing to watch out about this school is the donors; a small group of rich families who donate to the school, and therefore get treated better and have advantages in class.

Wellington is a great school fo any age. I attended Wellington from Kindergarten to 7th grade. I only left because i had to move. Wellington is so advanced, as am I, It helped me actually learn instead of just re-learning stuff I already Knew. The teachers are the best. If you have a student going into kindergarten, bonnie cole is the best. If you have a student going into 5th grade, Mary Potter is the best teacher in the history of Wellington. If you have a student going into 7th grade, Mike Smith is the man.

I would like to reply to a post on September 9, 2003 that a parent made: It is really wrong to say that Wellington is somehow lacking in the arts. Even though the tiny old BPAC is not the ideal performance space, the theater program has been internationally recognized as one of 17 (I think) high schools in the nation to travel to Scotland to perform at the Fringe Festival. The music programs offer a lot, too. Music is taught comprehensively from an early age. Later in middle and upper school, the music department allows some students to take all three music classes: strings, band, and choir. In high school band, there is a concert and jazz band (although we do not have a marching band). As for extracurricular activities, Wellington excels in this, with a record number of students and area kids participating in the summer options program.

The Wellington School is small enough to adjust their educational approach to best fit the needs of each student, while at the same time providing the population as a whole with a plethora of opportunities. The environment created by the students is one of academic and personal excellence, and it is a drastic contrast from that of other schools that I have attended.

Being involved with TWS for over twenty years has given me a perspective of the school few have. I have seen the school from its infancy, hard times and during its current Capital campaign. During all of this one thing has always held true. The faculty and staff at Wellington cares. I would not send my three children anywhere else. I have read some of the comments from disgruntled parents stating that if you are not a Big Money supporter you do not get things your way. Well I am Not a big money supporter and I am very happy with the school and the education my children are receiving. As for extracurriculars, if a child wants to participate they will have an opportunity. True, the school has gone through administrative issues, what school hasn't? No school, puplic or private, is perfect. Wellington is as close as it gets.

I am the parent of a graduate and a child who attended for nine years. [The Headmaster] was unprofessional and easily swayed by teachers and parents with their own agendas. I loved Wellington-I hope the school returns to it's original self, a school who cared about all children, regardless of their pocket book and personal agendas. It was sad to see the school take such a dive with the current leadership.

I have three children, one graduated from St Charles, one is currently attending CSG, and I had a daughter that just completed her first-year at Wellington. If you have a boy, send them to SC. If you have a girl, send them to CSG. While I found that most of the faculty are caring, I have not been impressed with the administration at Wellington. Furthermore, SC & CSG have far more resources than Wellington does. Perhaps Wellington will be a great place in about 15 years. Children of parents who donate to Wellington are treated much differently than those that give smaller amounts (or not at all). My daughter is transfering to CSG.

Wellington has been a great experience for my seventh grader. The teachers she had this year were experienced, creative and innovating. They cared also about her emotional and social stability. It has been a very positive experience for her. The music,sports and art programs were excellent. Coaches were positive. However it has been a very difficult and disappointing year for my youngest child. The teacher was very demeaning and condescending. I will rate below my seventh grader's experience. My youngest childs experience, I hope, was unusual for the school.

Wellington was an experience that started great and ended badly-- with my family recanting on capital funding pledges due to our general unhappiness. This was all before the new heads of division. I can only hope that it is more what it was at the beginning of my 13 years than at the end: a caring environment where EVERY STUDENT was important, not just the ones whose parents had great influence on the board, or were great athletes. Even with these comments: the level of education was great- college was easy comparatively. If Wellington could get the atmosphere back up to the level where it used to be, it would be worth the $ for the education.

I'm a 13 year veteran of Wellington. Reflecting back on my college years I can definately say that Wellington provided me with a learning and academic foundation several steps beyond my peers. Wellington has always had a strong emphasis on individuality and the Arts and I think this focus on fostering a strong sense of individuality in the students is often misconstrued as a lack of direction and leads to the misconception that Wellington is not competative. By the time Wellington students get to college, they understand that their sucess (in life) is not defined by an arbitrary race amongst their peers but rather reflects the unique realities of that students experiences academically and in real life. Go Jags.

Parental involvement at this school is terrific. My children enjoy a safe learning environment. Teacher quality is high and the new appointments of division heads for all 3 divisions over the last 2 years has been great. The Board made great decisions in acquiring each of these individuals. There could be a little more in the sports department. However, when graduating an average class of 50, Wellington will not be able to have everything. Perhaps with a new Athletic Director to start in the summer some of that will change. The Arts and Music are terrific. The Upper School was asked to perform at the Fringe Festival last summer. What an accomplishment!

This is a great community school, by that I mean the parents and families involvement is excellent and extensive! The arts programs are excellent and the sports programs are poor. The school has many leadership and curriculum issues/problems to work out. This school is a choice for parents to research throughly. It can be a superior learning enviroment for certain students and a poor learning enviroment for more driven motivated students. The 'competive edge' is missing from this school, therefore it creates a more lacks view on learning and learners.

TWS goes beyond all expectations to inspire, inform, instruct, instill, excellence in academic disciplines, while maintaining a high level of student awareness, loyalty, respect for individuals and property, encouragement of imagination, thinking outside of the box, hard work. The level of expectation at TWS is very high. My son has been at TWS for 8 years and has maintained a 4.0 average. Much of this is possible because of the parent/teacher/student/child relationships at TWS which strive to build a lattice work of contributing and giving within the school community. The academic programs are structured to allow as much challenge as a student may demand, while supporting the individual needs of each student to excell at their own level. TWS rates with the best of the best as presented in 'school of Dreams', but in a private school sector. I have no doubt that in this unfair world, my son is getting the best education possible that money can buy. Parental/teacher relationships are open and mature in addressing each gifted aspect of a students individuality. My son is the joy of my life and this is one way I can offer him the opportunity to excell within himself and to believe in himself without any fear or negative consequences. The work level is very high and is not for any student who has little desire to learn to be the best individual they can become and be a team player at the same time.

Great teachers, so-so administration, and seriously lacking in extracurricular activities. Somebody get that school a theater and music program.

Teaches the students to reach his or her potential; strong diversity emphasis; well balanced education including science and arts; stresses importance of service learning; parent involvement is highly encouraged; the teachers are the best you'll find anywhere.
