100 Years of History and Experience
From Strength to Strength, a conversation with former Headmaster, John Cheeseman ‘57 and current Head of School, Matt Byrnes
Seniors tell their unique Wooster stories, whether they are "lifers" and have been here since Middle School, or joined our community mid-way through their Upper School experience. True to our student-centered ethos, the panel will be moderated by our Seniors themselves.
You will also learn more about the Deep Learning Initiative (DLI) at Wooster School. DLI are Wooster’s most rigorous courses, created by our talented faculty and built around the interests of our students. Far more flexible and inspiring than Advanced Placement, DLI pushes students to find their own voice and be creative in the pursuit of sophisticated, original thought.
Bridge Program Panel - The Bridge Program Experience
Wooster's Bridge Program is a mainstream Middle School and High School program for students with language-based, executive function, and attention-related learning differences. The program is built around Wooster’s commitment to inclusivity, and gives students the confidence and skills for a lifetime of learning.
Middle School Panel - The Middle School Experience
Many middle schools start in 6th grade, but at Wooster’s Middle School, we start in the 5th grade. This allows us to take four years, 5th through 8th grade, to really get to know our students, establishing strong relationships and ensuring a strong foundation for their future.
Our Middle School team will explain how our small classes, access to learning opportunities, and personal attention, helps students build the skills they need for Upper School and confidence in who they are and who they want to be. This is the Middle School your child should experience!
