Welcome to Admission

Welcome! I am so happy that you have chosen to learn more about Wise School. We understand that finding the right school for your child is an important decision for your family. Similarly, getting to know your family throughout the admission process helps us identify the students and families that we believe will help fulfill the vision for our School – to be a place where children are inspired to learn deeply, be creative, experience wholeness, and make great happen.

The very best way for you to learn more about Wise School is to attend one of our two Open Houses during the fall. Attending an Open House will give you the opportunity to learn more about our curriculum, see our students in action, meet members of our committed faculty, and build lifelong friendships with our parent community. However, if you want to learn more about Wise School , please feel free to contact me at any time.

If we can be of any assistance to you as you search for the right school, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your interest in our School and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Warm regards,

Beth Behar, Director of Admission and Middle School Placement or 310.889.2275
