Wingra is a small, welcoming community of thoughtful, dedicated, creative educators. My children are taught to be thinkers and doers at Wingra. They are given regular opportunities to express themselves freely, to lead, to follow, to be challenged and to consider many viewpoints. My daughters both went to public school for elementary, so we have something to compare. My eldest is now back at our neighborhood public high school and she is thriving academically. She knows how to advocate for what she needs, thanks to Wingra. My youngest is still at Wingra and she loves going to school each day. We are so lucky to have Wingra for our kids!
