STEP ONE: Complete Application Materials | Current evaluation (within two years):

STEP TWO: Attend an Open House

Attendance at an Open House is mandatory for prospective parents/guardians. During an Open House, you will have the opportunity to hear more about our educational philosophy, tour the school, observe students and classes and participate in a question and answer session. Please click here for a schedule of our Open House events.

STEP THREE: Application Review

WPS admits students on a rolling basis, throughout the school year. After an application is received, it is reviewed by the Director of Admissions to determine if WPS can accommodate and remediate the student’s learning differences.

STEP FOUR: Interview and School Visit

If deemed appropriate, you will then be contacted to schedule a school visit for your child where we will conduct further testing, arrange a classroom visit and coordinate an interview with a School Dean. The testing portion of the interview may include portions of the WIAT-III, KTEA-3, TONI-4, QRI-5, and/or CTOPP-2.

STEP FIVE: Decision and Notification

Families are informed of admissions decisions via phone and by mail and are encouraged to contact the Director of Admissions to discuss the reasons why the student may or may not be appropriate for WPS. If a student is a good fit for the school, but there are currently no spots available, the student will be placed on a wait list and will be notified immediately if a spot becomes available within the group that is a match for the student’s learning profile. Families who are accepted are sent a contract and financial aid forms, and are encouraged to return the signed contract with a deposit within two weeks of notification.

WPS accepts students with average to superior intellectual potential; however, WPS does not accept students with primary behavioral or emotional symptoms.
