What West Island College says..
A premier, independent, post-secondary preparatory school located in the southeast quadrant of the City of Calgary, we are a co-educational, bilingual day school for high achieving students. Since our founding in 1982, we have attained a reputation for nurturing outstanding academic achievements, inspiring community service, and catering to the personal development of each student. Additionally, students also come from Okotoks, Bragg Creek and Cochrane.
We support a philosophy that has the interests of the individual child as the focus.
Children have needs which we are responsible for fulfilling:
They need to be loved, so it is our responsibility to treat our students with love, kindness and respect.
They need to be guided, so it is our responsibility to model the behavior that we expect of them.
They need to be encouraged and challenged, so it is our responsibility to be enthusiastic, well prepared and flexible in our teaching.
They need to belong, so it is the responsibility to all of us, staff and students, to generate a sense of community within the school and an appreciation of our place in the community at large.
As a community:
We should take pride both in our accomplishments and in the accomplishments of our fellows.
We should be proud of the bilingual heritage of our country and in the bilingual nature of our school.
We should work with the school community to generate in all members of this community a sense of respect for ourselves, for our fellows,
for our diversity and for the school.
We should work to generate a sense of commitment both to the school and to the larger community of which we are a part.
To achieve these goals, we will work together harmoniously and honour our commitments.
