General School Mission

"The Wardlaw-Hartridge School prepares students to lead and succeed in a world of global interconnection. We provide an educational atmosphere characterized by academic challenge, support for individual excellence, diversity, and a familial sense of community.
The core values of the Wardlaw-Hartridge school community are:
Integrity – our bedrock value, sine qua non
Opportunity – Wardlaw-Hartridge develops academic and intellectual excellence in its students through programs that stretch their creative imaginations, develop their athletic and artistic skills, engage their sense of discovery, and develop a social conscience. In the process, students take on leadership roles and learn how to work effectively in teams.
Support – Every member of the Wardlaw-Hartridge faculty believes in a personal approach to educating and developing the whole child. Wardlaw-Hartridge educators take the time, care, and interest in each student to call forth his or her best work.
Diversity – The diversity of thought, background, and culture at Wardlaw-Hartridge distinguishes us among independent schools, strengthens the global orientation of our curriculum, and enriches the daily experience of every member of the school community, inside and outside the classroom.
Community – When faculty members, students, parents, or graduates walk through the doors of Wardlaw-Hartridge, they have entered a home. Our community is distinguished by an ethos of care and mutual respect, and a strong partnership with families.
