Waring is a school driven by ideas and rooted in personal relationships. Waring School is seeking to broaden its close-knit student body with the addition of a few select International Students. We are very excited by the possibilities for our existing students to form relationships with students from abroad, as well as the opportunities opened up to those International Students by a Waring education.
Learning at Waring School is based on the enthusiastic sharing of ideas and perspectives, whether in response to great literature, in the understanding realized in a science lab, through artistic expression in the studio, or on the stage. A student body that is diverse in culture and nationality will make the process of discovery and learning richer and deeper for all of us. Waring’s intentional effort to broaden the range of our collective student voice ensures that our International Students will be integral and highly valued members of our community.
The Waring experience is unique and immersive in many ways. A very small school size, All-School Meetings
, an annual Camping Trip
, the exchange program with Angers, France
, and Junior Trip
are some examples of how our pedagogy promotes bonding within the community. Teachers, faculty, students, and parents collaborate to create an engaging, accepting and joyful learning environment. We know and address one another by first names here. The nurturing environment and high expectations we provide produce confident and capable critical thinkers and problem solvers. Students are motivated to do their best because their teachers are engaged and caring. Waring students are active learners, expected to express themselves in every class – this in itself is an aspect of a Waring education that can be of significant benefit to non-native English speakers. Our graduates are notably eloquent and confident in their self-expression.
