Whether you’re a kindergartner or a 7th grader, a mom or a dad, you can’t help but sense something special about Wildwood: Our community. Wildwood is a place where friendships begin, passions are discovered, and skills and talents are nurtured. Children are known well by teachers and administrators. Parents pitch in to organize book fairs and fundraisers. Alumni drop by just to say hello.
In the big city of Los Angeles, Wildwood offers a haven where students develop the confidence to be intellectually and creatively fearless. Whether they are singing during a 3rd grade performing arts exhibition, leading the varsity volleyball team to victory, or organizing a symposium for their peers, students find their unique voice at Wildwood. And while each voice is distinct, together they create a joyful chorus that echoes throughout the school halls.
Beyond the Classroom
Wildwood’s urban campus is the dynamic center of our learning community, which extends into the city to embrace the energy and diversity of Los Angeles. We believe learning happens everywhere. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that every student observes and experiences connections and relationships that make up a thriving metropolitan center in the context of a broader worldview.
Student inquiry is supported through internships, outdoor adventures, and athletics, broadening opportunities to learn and awareness of the complexities and diversity that define Los Angeles, our state, and the world. At every grade level, students take field trips, participate in community involvement, and use local park facilities.
All students are guided in making meaningful connections between their classroom learning and their varied experiences in the communities and the city. Understanding place, and our place in the world, is integral to a Wildwood education.
