We are glad you are here and invite you to walk with us on this journey of nurturing each child’s learning and creating a more just world.
Since 1972, Wingra has provided a progressive education, grounded in the principles of social justice, inclusion, and belonging. We strive to be responsive and in service to the needs of our students, families, society, and our earth. A tall order and one we take seriously. We are deeply guided by our mission and know that learning is a collective endeavor that is enhanced by caring relationships and a belief that our unique identities are a source of strength.
As you explore our site, I hope you’ll sense children joyfully learning, meaningfully challenged, and thoughtfully engaged in service, inquiry, and stewardship. We are proud of the work we do and acknowledge that is is our shared responsibility, as Wingra School, to nourish each child’s innate creativity, compassion, and will to do good — to foster a more equitable society and healthy planet.
Of course, there is no better way to understand Wingra than to experience it for yourself! We are excited to offer in-person tours again and know that, when you visit our campus, you’ll feel directly the energy and enthusiasm of our students and teachers as they explore what it means to be in community, both in and outside the classroom. I hope to see you soon!
With tremendous gratitude and welcome to Wingra School,
Head of School
