Our Mission

For over 50 years, Wildwood School has been committed to a progressive approach defined by research-driven educational practices.

Academic excellence and innovation join to nurture high achieving, emotionally intelligent students and challenge them to become the most extraordinary versions of themselves.

A Wildwood education is a dynamic experience, preparing students for a future defined by change.

Mission Statement
Wildwood School cultivates reflective scholars, bold innovators and compassionate leaders equipped with the skills, ethics and inspiration to transform their world.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Mission Statement
Wildwood School is a dynamic community of culturally and racially diverse families and educators. Wildwood honors individual differences and creates conditions where all can feel safe, accepted, and empowered. Our healthy exchange of perspectives and experiences cultivates compassionate, effective change makers.

In order to succeed, individually and collectively, we need to raise a nation of critical, creative, and innovative thinkers. Our students require both the content of a traditional education and one that provides them with the skills and experience to trust themselves to identify and be the creators of new information. They have agile minds and the ability to think independently with an understanding of relationships and outcomes. They are global citizens with cross-cultural competencies who embrace collaboration and diverging perspectives. Wildwood students graduate with the tools for transformation—schooled in ways that prepare them for a future defined by change. Read more in Why Wildwood.
