We are a public, non-tuition IB candidate school offering a whole child emphasis, exceptional academic standards, mission-centered curriculum and 21st-century skill-based assessments. All WIMA courses are designed to meet the MYP (Middle Years Programme) international standards. WIMA is composed of a diverse community.  Its students represent many cultures, races, nationalities, ethnicities and religions.  Please join us in celebrating that diversity, building a cohesive community and working toward our shared mission.

Instruction at WIMA takes a holistic, worldview approach to learning through critical thinking, collaboration, and inquiry. As the name implies, international standards are incorporated and course offerings include foreign languages, culture studies, and the State Common Core Standards. Students who are self-starters and ambitious will feel at home with the pace and rigor of this academy.

The curriculum and academic standards at WIMA are rigorous and based on IB/MYP international standards.  Students will be expected to maintain high standards, and support will be given to ensure that all students have a chance to succeed.
