There are about 100 to 110 students in each of the six grades at WIC. Typically, there are five to six classes in each grade and each class has about 20 students. The student community is small enough to have individual attention and big enough to have a wide variety of sports and arts programs, etc. There are lots of formal peer support/mentoring activities, as well as informal study assistance among students. Students develop many friend spheres, through athletics, classes, and extracurricular activities. WIC also has a Students’ Council, which involves all students from grades seven to twelve. Every year, students vote for the Students’ Council executives and grade representatives. The school encourages strong academic, athletic, and music performance, whilst also focusing on character and leadership development, providing awards for each grade every year.

We had a tiny class size. My graduating year was 60 people, and my class size in grade 12 was 14 people, because I was in the french stream. The student population was incredibly diverse both culturally and ethnically. Everyone there was passionate about something. Some people were heavily academic, some were very artistic, some were athletic. It seemed like there was an outlet for everyone to shine. Student's all got along well. The class size was large enough that everyone had their own friend groups, but small enough that we were all friends and would attend social gatherings (e.g. house parties) together. There were no cliques, bullying, or harassment at the school, and our uniforms made it easy not to worry about what I wore to school...
