Both students and teachers alike are grateful to attend school in-person during the pandemic, but having a plethora of pets in the halls makes it even better.


Thanks to the school’s experiential education program, students at Wamsley are learning to care for a variety of animals including a turtle, frogs, geckos, hermit crabs, millipedes and some huge cockroaches. Yes, they are in fact giant hissing cockroaches from Texas.
