All of my children have attended the Wetherill School (the older three have moved onto big kid school and the youngest is still at Wetherill.) It has been a wonderful school and community for the children and adults in our family. The teachers are caring and nurturing-and many of them have been there for years. The school fosters curiosity and creativity in the students. Parents are allowed to be as involved as they wish. It is exactly what we were looking for in a preschool!

This school is a gem--the warmth of the staff--who know every single child here--makes this a truly special place. My daughter loves the teachers--particularly Miss Donna and Miss Carol who she will have had for a total of 3 years. The instructional program is a wonderful mix of the best that Montessori, Dewey, Piaget and Reggio Emilia schools have to offer. The new principal, Marie Conti is a highly responsive and effective leader who has made this school even more remarkable. You should strongly consider this school if your child has a late Sept, Oct, Nov birthday (and misses the early Sept deadline for public school)-because they offer a kindergarten program which will keep your child stimulated + give your child a huge head start when they enter "official kindergarten" the following year. The facilities are a bit modest (church basement)but the classes are well equipped and the playground + nature area are very good. On top of the regular curriculum there is Nature, French/Spanish and Music and Movement classes. The parent involvement here is excellent. The location is the best: so safely tucked away in a residential area that even the neighbors have no idea it's there!

Warm, creative and nurturing! I have had two children at Wetherill and can't wait for my little one to start. The teachers are genuinely wonderful and fill the day with fun learning experiences! We couldn't love it more.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
