National Institutes of PEN participants at Wildwood's elementary campus in January

Educators are always welcome to visit and learn from us at Wildwood School.

And folks take me up on that every week. Already in 2018, among our guests, I’ve had the opportunity to host:

  • A team of charter school leaders from the Accelerated Schools in South L.A. looking to inspire a significant deepening of student-teacher relationships by jump-starting their middle and high school Advisory programs
  • Public and independent school teachers and administrators (pictured above) from a dozen schools across the country who gathered at both Wildwood campuses for the National Institutes of PEN (Progressive Education Network) annual workshop
  • A virtual visit with educators from the Kamehameha Schools of Hawaii, the largest private school in the U.S., interested in Wildwood’s focus on social-emotional learning

Our visitors have much in common and, of course, their own school-specific goals. Mostly, I hear requests for insights on how Wildwood matches its high academic expectations for students with an environment of care—kids caring about one another, teachers caring about students, and a culture of relationships.

Most heard comment: “Wow, your students are so mature and reflective.” I think that may be because at Wildwood our students are being taught how to be, not just how to achieve.
