At Wesley, we truly believe that the K-8 model is the best choice for children. It provides a safe space for children to come of age at an appropriate pace, and a place where they can avoid some of the social pressures found in a secondary school environment. As middle schoolers, our students have the opportunity to be mentors to their younger peers and to be the leaders on and around campus. The well rounded and exemplary academic program provides that come the end of 8th grade, our children are ready to take on the best independent high schools in the Los Angeles area. They are more mature and better-equipped to handle the rigors of their next educational chapters, thanks to the extra two years we give them to blossom and prepare. More and more research is being done proving the importance of this K-8 school environment for a child, and Wesley gives them a safe place to grow and develop while providing them the academic foundation to be very successful in the next step of their academic journey.
