To address the uniqueness of each child at WIS, we maintain a strong support services program that provides encouragement and guidance for all students.
Student support specialists work collaboratively with teachers to optimize the teaching and learning process for students. The English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department, offers students the opportunity to build skills and challenge themselves through learning support while class teachers use differentiated practice to create opportunities for learning enrichment. The approaches and support offered by student support teachers and academic assistants are differentiated using age-appropriate strategies.
