Founded as The Leal School for Boys in 1882 and The Misses Scribner and Newton's School for Girls in 1884, both in Plainfield, NJ, these later became respectively The Wardlaw School and The Hartridge School. From their earliest days, the schools developed a reputation for powerful preparation for college.  

In 1976, The Wardlaw School and The Hartridge School merged, becoming a coeducational Pre-K though 12th Grade educational institution. A dedicated faculty embraces the core values of the school’s long and rich history. Today they are one school on one campus, located in Edison, NJ. They continue to focus on the legacy of the past and draw strength from the academic excellence Wardlaw+Hartridge ensures for the future. 

W+H prepares students to lead and succeed in a world of global interconnection. We provide an educational atmosphere characterized by academic challenge, rigorous inquiry, support for individual excellence, diversity, and a familial sense of community. Video below.
