Studies show the most important predictor of a student’s academic outcome is his or her teachers, that is, teachers who care deeply about a student’s success in life, nurture open communication with students and their families, foster supportive classroom connections, and inspire continuous learning and curiosity through engaging, meaningful programs. Great schools have great teachers, and WPGA has exceptional teachers and staff, dedicated to shaping lives of inquiry, action and joy.
To maintain our highest standards of teaching excellence, we have a rigorous interview process, and seek teachers who not only integrate future-focused teaching and technology but also align with our vision, mission and core values. Our teachers and staff are enthusiastic, team-oriented people who go the extra mile, involve themselves in our school and are lifelong learners themselves. To that end, we invest significantly in professional development opportunities: 100 percent of our teachers attend professional development workshops each year throughout Canada and the United States, with many presenting at CAIS, ISABC, Ministry of Education and in-house sessions.
WPGA offers a generous compensation package, with extended health and RRSP-matching plans; teacher salaries are above the Vancouver School Board pay scale.
