We are able to provide that for the families who so desire.

Share a moment from your time here at WCCS that stands out as something you never want to forget.
Early on, I maintained two offices, one on each campus. Because my office on the lower campus was somewhat secluded, and I was only there 2 days a week, I did not decorate for Christmas. About 5 years ago one of my students and their mom got access to my office on the lower campus and decorated it for me. That was and is the most personal and heartwarming thing anyone has ever done for me at WCCS.
