Afterschool Programs

WISH offers many opportunities for student learning and engagement after school.  We partner with several experienced organizations to ensure that our young people have a wide range of developmentally interesting and appropriate activities after school.

We are open after school from 2:00 pm-6:00 pm (1:45 pm on Thursdays, and 12:30 on Short Days). We are closed on all non-school days. We help students with homework, provide a nutritious snack, and plan fun-filled games and activities. Our staff is filled with experienced, loving, and caring teachers.
