Uniquely Bosque


All students have dedicated WILLDS time in their schedule, just as they would math or humanities. In addition, just as math teachers are masters of their craft, so too are WILLDS educators. We hire experienced and passionate educators whose sole teaching focus is to deliver the various elements of the WILLDS curriculum. These teachers will work to develop the curricular arc of each of the WILLDS content areas and build relationships with students over the years.

Students will not necessarily engage with all elements of the WILLDS curriculum each year, but rather experience a curated series of WILLDS content blocks that focus on the unique developmental needs of each grade. 
Here are a few topics covered in WILLDS courses:
