About the WHILDE School
W e are a homeschool program providing a personalized curriculum for each student based on their WHILDE Method Blueprint. We offer a holistic, whole-child educational setting, taking a Montessori Approach to Personalized Learning.
Our Families join the WHILDE School for many reasons. For many, public or private school is not the best fit for their child. Some are just looking for a holistic project-based school, while others want to homeschool their child but do not or can not do it alone. The WHILDE School provides a healthy, safe community where all are considered family.
At the WHILDE School, we are guided by the WHILDE Method principle: Highlight the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical aspects of the “whole child,” and it creates the optimal environment to inspire any student toward academic and life achievement.
The WHILDE MEthod Blueprint is a collection of assessments to establish which areas of the student's mind and body need support with their skills and opportunities. A Blueprint is then created so we can incorporate its findings into our Student's daily instructional practice.
Jessica has a Masters in Education from St. Josephs's College, a BA in Social Work, is licensed in ABA therapy, and trained in Lindamood Bell. She is currently embarking on her Doctorate in Education.
Jessica founded The WHILDE School (formally Learning with Fun) in 2012 because she believes in Personalized Learning and loves helping young minds Learn and Grow and take risks while having fun at the same time.
As a teacher at both Public and Private Schools, she was not able to make the kind of difference that she wanted to with her students, so after tutoring for many years, she set out on my own and started the WHILDE Programs.
