Welcome to The Wesley School
I am John Walter, and this is my ninth year as Head of School. I am so pleased you're interested in Wesley, and I encourage you to learn more about us by reading through our website or taking a tour.
The Wesley School is a coeducational K-8 independent day school in North Hollywood. Established in 1999, we honor timeless traditions and pride ourselves on our caring, welcoming, and diverse community. Take one look at our historic ivy-covered brick buildings, and you’ll be instantly transported to a different time and place—to a beautiful, tucked-away gem—an oasis in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. Here, we offer individual attention and small instructional groups, all the while nurturing relationships, developing globally-minded citizens, and demanding every student’s personal best. Our dedicated faculty, low student-to-teacher ratio, and wonderful learning community further set us apart, as do the smiles on our children’s faces when they willingly participate in everything from classroom discussions to public speaking opportunities.
When we ask our parent body why they chose us for their children, the overwhelming response is—community. Step onto our campus and see for yourself! We know you’ll walk away with a feeling that cannot be replicated as you witness, first-hand, Academic Excellence and Character Development Within the Circle of Family. Come to Wesley, and you won’t be able to help but think that where you’ve actually come is home.
