As a former student of Wakefield School, I felt absolutely disgusted reading the negative comments. I went to Wakefield from 9th to 12th grade and I will it admit I had both negative and positive thoughts throughout my four years. However, the positives definitely outwiegh the bad. The Wakefield faculty ...  Read more

This is an awful awful nasty school. They bury your child is meaningless busy work. Just memorization and regurgitation. You child will learn nothing useful. They say they have a good English program but my child found the level about three grades lower than she had before. The teachers are mean and ...  Read more

As the new Headmaster of Wakefield School, I welcome all feedback about our school. I would certainly encourage this particular family to contact me about their situation to help me better understand what we can do to make Wakefield an even stronger community. Our school is one that works very hard ...  Read more

I have had a child now in every grade at the school from Pre-K to 12th grade. I will say that it is not a school for everybody. I don't think any private school should be a school for everybody. It is a school for FAMILIES that value hard work and the importance of reflection. Not all of the students ...  Read more

Admin is bad, they can't write recommendations and the place is bleeding students - Don't waste your time here! The only way they can improve is to close their doors for good! I would give ...  Read more

On the first day of school, my kindergartener held open the door for a long line of students and parents walking into the building. He was not prompted by his mother to do so, he did ...  Read more

I am not sure what some of the other reviewers are talking about. My child has been enrolled at Wakefield for three years. It has been a wonderful experience from day one. Whenever I have had a concern it has been addressed thoughtfully and quickly. My child has gained not only great academic skills ...  Read more

I have no idea what the review posted in March is speaking about. I am pleased that the school has worked to improve its athletic and extracurricular programs and impressed that last year's graduating class had a scholarship artist, athlete and academic. It speaks to the overall strength of the program. ...  Read more

Wakefield School seemed like such a great place when I went there as a sixth grade student; however, as I grew and became a high schooler, Wakefield began to box me in. As a school Wakefield celebrates the personality and norms of the upper middle class white family--leaving those with a creative side ...  Read more

I have 2 children in the upper school and am extremely pleased with the classes that they offer. Both kids do a lot of writing and critical thinking which is so important as they begin the process for entering college. Excellent leadership in the Upper School. The quality of instructors in the Upper ...  Read more
