Self-education for inquisitive students.


      Whimselthwaite School is an eclectic, private micro-school with a student-to-faculty ratio of 5:1, facilitating the self-education of inquisitive students in grades Pre-K through 12, by means of an expert governess, tutoring from home in a homeschool setting.  

“Whimselthwaite” (n.) = “whimsy” + “-thwaite.”
A meadow, surrounded by a wood, where quaint or fanciful playful thoughts occur...
as in the words of Robert Louis Stevenson, “happy play in grassy places.”
