The Places They'll Go...

The High School Placement Process

Every year, WNS matriculates its 8th grade class into a variety of prestigious, top tier secondary schools. Students successfully transition into a range of styles including private, local public, charter, boarding or specialized program schools. Each WNS graduate receives one on one counseling to guide them through this exciting process.

Starting in 7th grade, students and parents begin outlining the high school process. Our Head of School and Assistant Head of School meet with each family to discuss specific strategies for each student and essential timelines. Our Secondary School Placement Counselor handles all the necessary paperwork from WNS to ensure each student’s application is complete. Secondary school counseling continues throughout the 8th grade year as we work with each student and family to ensure a wholesome transition.

Once A Jet, Always A Jet

At WNS we are very proud of our alumni! In recent years, our alumni have been accepted to and are attending very prestigious colleges, universities, professional schools and abroad programs. Take a look at where our most recent alums are attending.

My time at WNS particularly during my middle school years definitely set the foundation for my current life. During these years I began life long friendships, created strong bonds with my teachers, learned my academic strong suits, which study habits work for me and what truly makes me happy. I can confidently say that skills I learned and the bonds I created back in my WNS days still impact my life today.
