    The Waverly School is an independent day school for students from preschool through 12th grade, located in Pasadena, CA.


    Progres­sive Education: Waverly’s educa­tional philos­o­phy asserts that students learn best when they are actively involved in their educa­tion, when they become respon­si­ble for their growth as students, when they are encour­aged to work to their highest level, and when their learn­ing is based on life expe­ri­ences. Chil­dren and young adults develop in stages; Waverly respects and supports each child’s journey through these stages. The educa­tional program at Waverly incor­po­rates all aspects of human devel­op­ment — intel­lec­tual, social, phys­i­cal, aesthetic, and ethical — and strives to inte­grate learn­ing by guiding students to be curious about all that the world has to offer.
