A Day at Wildwood Upper School

Wildwood’s upper school is a dynamic center of learning that extends into the city to embrace the energy and diversity of Los Angeles. We believe learning happens everywhere. 

Days at upper school are filled with rigorous academics, internships, outdoor adventures, arts, and athletics – all of which put the student at the center of the learning experience and prepare them for success beyond Wildwood.
