School Reviews

5  
Wichita Collegiate School is an exceptional place in every way. My two daughters have attended since pre-school (one just graduated and one is a junior). They have had incredible opportunities to develop as well-rounded people and students. Every student is encouraged to find their passion - whether it is the arts, sports, volunteerism, etc. Academics are very strong yet the teachers meet each student where they are and are able to adapt teaching methods based on the unique needs of the student. I think my daughter is exceptionally well prepared for college because of her Collegiate experience. She got into all of her top choices with significant merit scholarship awards. I cannot recommend WCS highly enough!
