Welcome

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.

One site - Two Schools
WIMA coexists as a collaborative learning community with the Washtenaw International High School. Teachers and students share common areas, but also have their own part of the building designed just for them.
