Please join us for our Virtual Open House!

The best way to determine if WES is the right fit for your child is to meet our community.

WES’s Virtual Open House will bring the joy of a WES educational experience into the comfort of your home! You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about our hands-on and balanced curriculum through presentations by our Head of School Danny Vogelman, our division directors, and faculty, as well as Q and A panels with current parents and students.
