The WIC leadership and administration are incredibly responsible and strategic. No school is problem-free, but the WIC leadership responds to the student or staff-related issues swiftly and communicates to parents in time, all while respecting the privacy of the people involved. I don’t recall any cases where I would disagree with the approach or decision that the leadership took. I would say the school culture is collaborative, respectful, and professional. I commend the WIC leadership team for a positive environment. Over the last few years, the leadership paid a great deal of attention to the development of IT capabilities and gradually deployed several learning tools and platforms. In Jan/Feb this year, when COVID-19 pandemic was still at its infancy in Alberta, the leadership team had already begun to prepare for potential impacts. Early in March, they encouraged students to bring their essentials (books, electronics, etc.) home and asked teachers to load their notes, assignments, and quizzes online. When the provincial government announced school closures, WIC was ready to function online right away. As a parent, I highly appreciate the forward-thinking and proactive efforts of the leadership team.

The attitude of teachers and administration at the school was something I came to appreciate after coming back to the school and talking with other students years later. All students are treated with respect and as equals. This approach over the 12 years I was there gives an incredible amount of confidence when engaging with people that have power or seniority over me. This has led to great confidence in seeking help and guidance from professors in university, and has led to advancement opportunities in my professional career. The attitude at the school was positive. There were no systematic bullying or harassment issues, only one-off confrontation events I would deem "typical" for teenagers to encounter. The school dealt with these events swiftly, fairly, and openly. I cannot recall anything specific that took place as it all seemed quite balanced. As a rebellious teen that was often having to explain myself and my actions to administration, I always felt I was disciplined appropriately and fairly. Beyond discipline, I felt I was given lots of guidance, trust, and help to get onto a better path.
