publisher INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES AVAILABLE FOR YOUR UNIQUE STUDENTS When it comes to educational options in Wellington, parents have many choices beyond traditional brick-and-mortar schools, both in the public and private settings. Although Wellington is known for its A-rated public schools, local families have many options that offer personalized educational experiences at multiple private facilities. This month, we feature several of these options, including #1 Education Place, Score at the Top and the Wellington Collegiate Academy, as well as the American Heritage School, which was recently honored for leading the state in STEM education. On our cover this month are the three winners of the Wellington Community Foundation’s annual Arle & Ken Adams Scholarships. Winners Ryann Bierman, Miles Wang and Isabella Whedbee are three outstanding new high school graduates who are sure to go on and make all of us here in Wellington proud of their future accomplishments. Also featured this month is the Equus Foundation, a nationwide nonprofit with deep roots in Wellington. Its aim is to protect horses, both during their lives in competition, and also making sure they get the retirements they deserve toward the end of their lives. Wellington Table this month takes a trip to Sardinia, an Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea with a unique cuisine featured at the new local restaurant Zona Blu. Wellington Health visits with Nettecha Rheingold, founder of Achette’n, which offers clients the best possible fit on a wide range of medical-grade breast forms, mastectomy bras, compression garments and lingerie. Wellington Real Estate visits a luxurious Mediterranean-style estate in Wellington. Presented by Renee Goodemote, this custom-built home includes high-end details and amenities throughout. Finally, our Wellington Schools series continues with a profile of New Horizons Elementary School Principal Dana Pallaria, who fosters a love of learning at her school, which features a unique Dual Language International Spanish Academy. Now that the 2021-22 school year has drawn to a close, Wellington The Magazine would like to congratulate all of our community’s 2022 graduates and send well wishes to all the new students entering VPK and preschool this upcoming fall, as well as those students heading off to college this summer.
