I am impressed with the quality of instruction. I would describe the teachers at WIC as passionate, experienced, and dedicated. The teachers are not only knowledgeable about their subjects, but can also effectively pass on their knowledge to students. Even though both my wife and I are engineers, our children said it was easier for them to grasp the math and science concepts through their teachers’ instructions and extra help. I find that the teachers at WIC are effective communicators inside and outside of their classrooms while talking with them during many occasions, including parent-teacher interviews, after school assemblies, or sports events. The teachers never wait for the parent-teacher interviews to provide suggestions or feedback; they always make their expectations and advice clear to students early on. As a parent, one of my biggest concerns was my children wouldn’t like a certain subject because they didn’t like the teacher. I am happy to say that it has never been an issue in the last 6 years. This tells us something about the teachers’ care and connection with the students. In the same class, there are sometimes wide gaps among students’ abilities, but at WIC, teachers pay individual attention to each student’s needs. They don’t just provide extra support to the ones who are behind, but they also give more challenging work for advanced students too.

Teaching was always engaging and creative. I can still remember some of the classes that we had because the teachers were so passionate about what they did. In class, all students were treated with respect. Some classes were quite formal, and some had very informal hands-on approach that allowed for creativity and exploration. The mix was well-balanced and led to a good recollection of material. Teachers were always available for extra help before and after school, to the point I thought this was a normal thing done everywhere. All the teachers were engaged and passionate, and the administration took student feedback on teachers very seriously and took action when teaching did not meet student or parent expectations. Mr. Smith's biology classes will always be remembered fondly, and Mr. Bennet's physics class set me on a path towards engineering.
