Wesleyan is an amazing school in every way. The students who attend Wesleyan excel academically with the support of highly qualified and caring teachers and staff. Every student has the opportunity to pursue their chosen extracurricular, with most students being able to participate in multiple, as the sports and arts offered are numerous and successful. I loved every minute of my time spent at Wesleyan and still to this day many years later am in contact with many old teachers and classmates who have become lifelong friends and mentors.

A very prestigious college prep school and has a great reputation. It is a very religious school but all of the teachers truly care about their students and want to see their students grow as a person. They strive in athletics as well as academics.
