We put the JOY in learning.

Does your child love learning and crave something more? Does your child dread going to school? Is your child not being challenged?

Walk into any one of our classrooms at any point, and you will see students engaged, smiling, and loving to learn. The joy in our classrooms is palpable.

Because we do not emphasize standardized testing, our students are able to drive the instruction. We offer an environment where students can excel and reach their highest potential.

Rather than sitting still at a desk, completing worksheets, our students are conducting experiments, engineering, creating…all while learning at a pace that matches their intellect.

WAAS is the only school in Wilmington dedicated solely to the gifted, talented and highly-motivated student in grades 4-8. Come check us out. You and your student will love what you see.
