The school prioritizes making sure that teachers have the supplies and support they need in order to be great teachers while maintaining a healthy work/life balance." - Tina Wittmann, Senior School Math and Geology Teacher

"When I was offered my position at WPGA in 2008, I was looking to work somewhere to make a positive difference in society—a place where what I did for a living mattered to my world and the society I want to live in. West Point Grey Academy is that place." - Carolyn Thompson, Senior School Secretary

"I was hired to teach grade 1 at WPGA in 2010 and haven’t looked back. I have had so many opportunities to follow my passions, including teaching different grade levels, running the skills department, getting involved in teacher development, and joining the Leadership Team. Being part of the Wolfpack means being supported, cared for and connected with others with similar views in education. I have always been drawn to WPGA for the joy in the hallways, the friendships, and the energy of our students. There is never a dull day!" -  Karen Melville, Junior School Director of Learning
