About Whitby School

Schools that associate academic rigor with test taking, hours of homework and rote memorization of facts are preparing students for success in the last century.

Rigor at Whitby School is much more expansive as we provide our students with opportunities to explore real-world concepts and issues, challenge assumptions, think critically, and acquire skills that they will need to apply throughout their educational and future professional journeys.

A Whitby education is about allowing students to define success on their own terms by inspiring their love of learning, broadening their sense of responsibility, developing their critical thinking skills, and empowering them to take action in a global community. These are the ideals that we value and they inform our teaching, learning and curriculum development each and every day.

Whitby has strong academics but turns a blind eye to bullying situations. They either ignore the bullying, tell parents it's the student's fault, or just wait for the bullied student to leave. Some of the bullying is borderline criminal. It's so harmful for the mental health of the students, as we experienced first hand. Consider this a red flag.

Our daughters love Whitby. One has already graduated from 8th grade and gone to high school. A great international community, great Math and English programs,small classes, teachers are tough graders, art and athletics participation is mandatory, at the end we have well rounded students.

We moved from Portugal to Connecticut, and my daughter was in ME4, and the integration was one amazing experience. I have no words to express my gratitude to all teachers and staff.

Our family has been part of the Whitby School community for 9 years. We have a 6th grader, and a daughter who graduated last year and is now a freshman in high school. I could not more highly recommend the school. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school it attracts families from many different countries, culturally making it wonderfully diverse. The IB curriculum and inquiry-based learning platform makes me wish I had been educated that way myself! I have also embraced the advantages of a school that finishes in 8th grade. It afforded my daughter the opportunity to reflect on her strengths and the things that she valued most in her education. The experience she gained in the application process, standardized testing, and interviews will make the college application process so much easier! She was also able to pick the high school that was the best fit for her. The transition has been seamless, as she found the perfect school and was more than adequately prepared educationally and socially. Thank-you Whitby, and your exceptionally caring faculty and staff! :

Based on my experience, worst school as a value for money. Bad teacher in our case, and even worse leadership can summarize our experience. As I have told the principal & management, this is a school for girls and kindergarten kids. They, either, dont want boys or let boys be boys. Teaching is basically sitting through and completing online assignments. If this is deemed to one of the best private schools in Greenwich, I give a low grade for the education in US at least on an elementary level. My advise is to save a bunch and send your kid to a public school instead of wasting it here.
