Transportation

The logistics of getting a child to school everyday are an important part of the decision of where that child will attend school. Wooster works with families to ease the transportation challenge for busy families.

Student Drivers

With parental permission, students of legal driving age may drive to Wooster and park on campus. Special proximate parking areas are assigned to the seniors every year as recognition of their important responsibilities in the Self-help system in the School.

Car Pools

Upon request, families can be provided with the names of other students in their area who have expressed an interest in car pooling. The specific arrangements among families for carpooling are left to the families themselves.
