Vision, Mission, & Values
At WIC, incredible opportunities happen every day in an environment where learning is tailored to each individual student; where relationships are nurtured through effective teamwork and collaboration; and where students are immersed in a community of enthusiastic learners. WIC emphasizes respect, responsibility and citizenship. We believe that inspiring our students to pursue excellence in academics, leadership, athletics and global awareness prepares them for success in the future.
Our students are curious, creative, innovative - able to impact the world.
Empowering each student to thrive, contribute, and live a healthy, purposeful life.
Our values guide our genuine relationships with students, parents, alumni and with each other. We strive to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment that prepares each student to lead a purposeful life, and be active and responsible citizens of the world.
We are curious and possess a desire to know and understand other peoples’ needs and feelings.
We care about ourselves, others, and the world in which we live.
We are reliable, trustworthy, and responsible.
We try new things and we step out of our comfort zone; we stand up for what we believe in.
We are true to ourselves; we are truthful and sincere.
Be Bold. Be Brave. Be Ready.
Own Your Future.
We support a philosophy that has the interests of the individual child as the focus.
Children have needs which we are responsible for fulfilling:
They need to be loved, so it is our responsibility to treat our students with love, kindness and respect.
They need to be guided, so it is our responsibility to model the behavior that we expect of them.
They need to be encouraged and challenged, so it is our responsibility to be enthusiastic, well prepared and flexible in our teaching.
They need to belong, so it is the responsibility to all of us, staff and students, to generate a sense of community within the school and an appreciation of our place in the community at large.
As a community:
We should take pride both in our accomplishments and in the accomplishments of our fellows.
We should be proud of the bilingual heritage of our country and in the bilingual nature of our school.
We should work with the school community to generate in all members of this community a sense of respect for ourselves, for our fellows,
for our diversity and for the school.
We should work to generate a sense of commitment both to the school and to the larger community of which we are a part.
To achieve these goals, we will work together harmoniously and honour our commitments.
