“The mission of WCLL is to develop our children, who are diverse in cultural and ethnic backgrounds, ability levels and learning styles, into caring individuals and responsible citizens. We provide quality education through a cooperative relationship of home, school and community. It is our goal to empower students to meet the global challenges of today and realize the dreams of tomorrow.”
The K4 – grade 12 setting at WCLL allows staff to work closer with families for a longer period of time. By strengthening relationships with educators, young learners become aware of their talents and abilities at an early age, receiving encouragement from those they trust. As students grow into middle school-aged children, the close bonds they have with their peers and staff members help them tackle the challenges of adolescence and grow into confident, intelligent decision-makers. Eventually, students transform into compassionate young adults with a solid educational foundation for college and work.
While the setting at WCLL promotes confidence and success in academics, it also equips students with the social skills needed to succeed. Older students may choose to provide supervised tutoring to younger students for service hours. This positive interaction benefits both groups. The young learners look up to the older students, viewing them as role models. These expectations encourage WCLL’s older students to model good behavior and provide positive encouragement and feedback for the young learners.
When students are educated at one school for a number of years, they develop a sense of school pride and spirit. WCLL students are proud to be here. They take advantage of the many resources offered to them and know that high standards are expected.
