Upper School

Developing great thinkers and good people.

It's one thing to provide rigorous academics that challenge students to think critically, apply their knowledge, and grow through classroom- and project-based learning. It's quite another to create a culture of thoughtfulness that helps young people develop character, leadership skills, and genuine care for others.

Here at Wakefield School...

We believe that it's not one or the other. It's both. Which is why you'll find just as much attention on developing hearts as on sharpening minds. And it's why we're focused on such an ambitious vision: developing capable, ethical, and articulate students who will make a difference in the world.


Our Upper School students are surrounded and supported by a robust network of teachers, advisors, and coaches who encourage them to unearth their passions and pursue them to the highest degree. Wakefield's Upper School students are active in their student government, competitive athletics, the arts, the school's award-winning literary magazines, and a wide array of clubs and activities
