Six Months to Sixth Grade
Offering a family a school home for as many as 12 years is wonderful. The span of grade levels provides ample time for the child's development to progress in a logical fashion from one grade to the next.
This continuum gives consistency and relevance to learning because Wesley Prep recognizes the age-appropriate needs of children from six months to sixth grade. Students become family, due to small classes, communication, and appropriate curriculum.
As they move up the ladder at Wesley Prep, children feel nurtured and safe, and teachers have an intimate sense of each child's personality and academic needs. Our children benefit from a carefully planned program, and teachers are able to follow a student's progress over the years to provide continuity of instruction. At all levels, our teachers are encouraging, inquiring about and participating in the lives of our youngest students.
Getting to know families and have siblings move through our school system is a benefit to the families and teachers. For teachers, it's fulfilling to watch a child progress through elementary, enjoying seeing them in the hallways as well as starring in the Musicals and Art Shows. Even if this is your first year in the school, there is great benefit to the age range we have in the school. The multi-age grouping allows younger children to hear about experiences of the older children that they can anticipate doing such as camp, trips, and special projects. It also helps older students remember when they were younger and looked up to the bigger kids. We count on our older students to be inspirational role models for younger children - and they are.
