Students Growing & Thriving

5th grade
At WISH we believe that all children are gifted and valuable!  From the outset, children learn in socially just classrooms that teach that diversity is valued!  As these children grow up they are innovators and advocates for social, community, and workplace access and equity! Each class builds a strong, inclusive community together! Each summer teachers attend professional development institutes on gifted and talented education, Balanced Literacy, technology, and multi-tiered systems of support. Important academic, social, and ethical skills and attitudes are developed when students with various strengths, needs, and backgrounds learn together.
