Why Wolcott, Why Now?
Thank you to everyone who attended our event on May 15 at the home of Leslie Bluhm and David Helfand.
It was a wonderful evening and the perfect setting to introduce our founding Head of School, Dr. Miriam Pike. Together with remarks from Pearl Rieger and Wolcott School founders Jennifer Levine and Jeff Aeder, guests had the opportunity to listen to several student testimonials and hear first hand the importance of having Wolcott School in Chicago.
In the words of Mollie, currently an 8th
grader in a Chicago area private school,
“Because of the way I learn, school is a struggle. I work really, really hard but no matter how hard I study and what I know, I fail almost every written test I take. I know I need to be in a school where teachers can teach me the way I learn best.”
