WBAIS teachers are dedicated to student success, concerned about the physical and emotional well-being of their students, passionate about student learning and excited by the prospect of working within a dynamic, diverse community.
Classroom practices emphasize active, collaborative learning; team-building activities; the application of technology to authentic learning experiences; differentiated instruction and student achievement.
Professional development is an ongoing priority. We strongly believe that a school improves when its teachers are committed to lifelong learning. Most of our faculty hold a master’s degree or higher. Additionally, annual funding supports in-service activities, consultant visits, conference and workshop attendance, advanced course work and special projects. In short, while our professional standards and expectations are high, they are supported by a wide variety of professional development opportunities.
WBAIS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection. We have developed policies and procedures, security guidelines, education, recruiting standards, and expectations that help to ensure a safe and secure environment for all.
