Two Campuses = More Opportunity
WT’s Lower School spans two unique campus settings.
The Lower School City Campus is ideally located in Pittsburgh's educational, cultural, historical, and medical hub. Its close proximity to Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh embeds Lower School students in the heart of our city’s resources and experts.
The Lower School North Campus is located on seven rolling acres which include several academic buildings, a spring-fed pond, natural playground, and walking and hiking trails. This idyllic setting is the perfect backdrop for deep application in outdoor learning and a myriad of extracurricular, co-curricular, and social activities.
Whether at the City Campus or the North Campus, WT’s Lower School students know that learning is an active, experiential endeavor. Our dual-experience model allows families to choose the primary experience for their child’s elementary years, recognizing that their children will enjoy learning together and participating in long-term projects and curricula through our cross-campus collaboration.
Leveraging the resources of our flagship City as Our Campus partnerships, and the wealth of natural resources, surroundings, and outdoor learning experts at our Lower School North Campus, WT’s Lower School students have the best of both worlds.
