A Solid Education
Wentworth’s class sizes are small, ranging from 8 to 12 students per class with an average student teacher ratio of 10:1. All of our teachers know all of our students and at Wentworth there is no “back of the room”. Students must sit up in ways they never have before.
As a military school, we bring the same structured approach to study disciplines and academics that we do to all aspects of cadet life. Students have 7 classes per day and for those who need extra help with homework, we have a 2-hour faculty supervised study period for them.
Wentworth’s curriculum ensures that each graduate will be prepared for college and beyond in whichever field of study he or she chooses. We emphasize the foundational reading, writing, and math skills required for academic success both at high school, college, and beyond. Wentworth reinforces these core skills in each discipline taught in the school, whether it be literature, history, languages, advanced math or science.
Trained to Think
Wentworth’s structured environment helps our cadets improve their critical thinking, communication, and social skills, all keys to future success. For advanced students, Wentworth offers the opportunity for juniors and seniors to take courses in the college program as long as they have completed their high school graduation requirements in a particular discipline.
