Matriculation and HS Placement Process

High School Placement Process

Every year, WNS matriculates its 8th grade class into a variety of prestigious, top tier secondary schools. Students successfully transition into a range of styles including private, local public, charter, boarding or specialized program schools. Each WNS graduate receives one on one counseling to guide him or her through this exciting process. During their 7th grade year, both students and parents meet to begin outlining the process. Over the summer, leading into 8th grade, families meet individually with our Head of School to discuss specific strategies for each student and essential timelines. As soon as school starts in the fall, our Secondary School Placement Counselor handles all the necessary paperwork from WNS to ensure each student’s application is complete. Secondary school counseling continues throughout the 8th grade year and works with each student and family to ensure a wholesome transition.
