Why Choose Our School for Gifted Children?
The Wilmington Academy of Arts and Sciences provides a unique opportunity for families who desire more than what can be provided in an environment geared toward high-stakes testing.
While we do administer regular and standardized testing, we value a more holistic approach to education with a myriad of hands-on learning experiences.
We are the only middle school in the area whose main focus is the education and enrichment of gifted and academically-motivated students. The shared goal of our faculty is to produce students who are prepared to succeed in high school and possess the skills needed to excel in college. When students complete their education at WAAS, they leave with the critical thinking skills necessary to thrive in today’s society.
