Frequently asked questions

Can I schedule a school visit before an admission?


All families considering admission to NWS are strongly encouraged to visit the School. These can be booked online or through the Front Desk. ​ A typical visit consists of a talk with a member of the admission staff, a tour of the campus with a teacher or wing head, and a family conference at which the staff member answers questions about the School, to convey a sense of how NWS will fit into their school search.
