Our school is on the south side of Lexington near the namesake subdivision and Wellington Park. The groundbreaking was in May 2010, and construction was completed in July 2011. The native gardens, wildlife and walking trails nearby provide additional learning opportunities for our students.
The school's own cutting-edge features go beyond the "green" physical structure. The combination of core content and focus on 21st century skills redefine rigor, preparing our students for a challenging and rapidly evolving world. Wellington is also proud to have more than 30 languages spoken among our students and families!
What makes our school special
Designed to be an energy-efficient and sustainable school, our nearly 76,000-square-foot facility is itself a teaching tool. The solar energy panels, a rainwater capture and reuse system, a solar hot water system, permeable pavers, rain gardens and automatic electric lighting controls are visible to students and provide opportunities for classroom involvement and instruction.
Wellington also offers an outdoor classroom, designated recycling areas and native landscaping. Students have opportunities to extend their science learning in our STEM lab, the E=USE2 energy club and Living Lab teams. We are also proud to be a 2014 National Green Ribbon School.
