One of the key reasons we took our children to WIC was their French immersion program. In each grade, there is at least one class dedicated to French immersion, about two classes with French as a second language program, and about two other classes with Spanish as a second language program. The French immersion program is rigorous and high achieving. Even compared with Francophone schools, WIC French immersion students are outstanding in terms of their performance on the Grade 9 PAT, DELF, AP French Exam, and Grade 12 Diploma Exams. By the way, most of these students, including our children, are from non-Francophone families. WIC is also strong in other academic areas such as math and science. WIC does not simply follow a regular curriculum, it goes the extra mile. WIC established several academic-focused institutes, such as health sciences, liberal arts, engineering, and business. These programs are managed by dedicated teachers and provide students with hands-on learning experiences and real-world connections. WIC students also participate in various competitions, such as CASE business competitions under teachers’ guidance. All of these fun and engaging activities cultivate students’ interests and prepare them for university or their future careers.

Language classes included a great exploration of classics (Shakespear, Jane Austyn, Emile Bronte, J.D. Salinger, Great Gatsby etc.) and more modern works as well. We looked at books, poetry, movies, and plays. We were able to attend the theater as well! Science classes were well structured and creative. There were lots of experiments using slinky's, swinging weights, rolling cylinders etc. in physics. Chemistry was always backed by experiments or demos. Lots of the classes were very memorable. Math is a strong suit. I was able to complete Math AP (Calculus) in high school, which set me up well for university. WIC provides lots of AP classes, which provide preparation for university classes or complete credits I could apply, allowing me to have a lighter course load in the first year and contributing to my success.
