Students & Parents Say

“As a 2016 graduate of a Living Wisdom High School, I am eternally grateful for the gifts and opportunities I received. I was given the support and freedom to pursue my interests, travel the world, and truly engage with my learning. The small class sizes created a safe space to dive deep into everything and ended up being a second family for me. My teachers were the best role models I could have asked for and supported me not only academically but in my own personal growth and goals. 


Living with high ideals and with love and dedication to their students, the teachers are the gold in the Living Wisdom School system. I now work at Living Wisdom High School of Palo Alto, and I sincerely recommend it as a transformative and joy-filled experience that will set an incredible foundation for the rest of life.”
