What we love is the humanities focus — art! music! the classics! — and that the school doesn't miss a beat on STEM.

The Wilkes School is a treasure nestled inside a large city. We love Wilkes for the opportunities it provides our son for experiential learning and solid instruction on the fundamental academics like math, science, reading and writing, as well as nurturing an appreciation for arts and culture.

Wilkes is a great place for our daughter to nurture her particular loves of music and history. Who knew that a 7-year-old could get so excited about the statue of the Marquis de Lafayette or hearing an opera performance at the Peabody Conservatory!?

As my children progress through the grades I am seeing the payoff of the school's approach to supporting children to become mathematical thinkers, writers, and critical thinkers.  Learning is brought to life in so many terrific ways, both within the school’s walls and beyond.
