Rising to New Heights: Upper School Academics at WMA

'WMA is great for a lot of reasons ...'

A Community of Learners from Around the World

As a community of learners we are constantly engaged and learning from each other. We are a student-centered environment that embraces different student experiences from around the world. At WMA we ask a lot of our students in the classroom, but we are also there to guide them. Whether you are conducting independent research for an AP Capstone project, designing a robot in our iLab, building an investment portfolio in the Trading Center or traveling through the Amazon learning about cultural migration, we will meet you where you need to be met ... and raise you to the next level.

In a diverse, rigorous and caring environment, the Upper School promotes the intellectual, social and physical growth of adolescents. Students broaden their academic development as they prepare for the challenges of higher education and for success as compassionate, challenge-seeking global citizens and leaders in an increasingly interdependent world.
