Wychwood School is a gem. My two daughters are thriving at the school, learning all about the world and all the wonderful ways of looking at it.
The school’s curriculum builds on the Ontario curriculum but enriches it in so many interesting ways that students are never bored or unmotivated. Day to day lessons in the major subjects are challenging, but they are also perfectly matched to the needs and abilities of the students. No one is left behind. The atmosphere in the school is consistently welcoming and positive.
Not only is Dr. Wells-Jopling an innovator and pioneer in children’s education; she is a caring and respectful teacher who listens to her students, understands their needs, and knows how to motivate them and spark their curiosity.
The list of creative and interesting educational activities my daughters have experienced at the school goes on and on: this year alone there have been twice monthly High Park nature center visits, visiting guest speakers (a policewoman and an Ontario court judge!), amazing science experiments, a wonderful poetry reading night, lessons in architecture and engineering, sports competitions (e.g., track and field, badminton, ping pong), math lessons made fun, an outstanding choice of children’s literature, field trips (to the ROM, Science Centre, Young People’s Theatre), and on and on.
I think this is the best education in the city.
