Is it assigning more homework: 30 math problems instead of 20, 25 sentence diagrams in place of 10, or 10 page paper instead of 5? I don’t believe that doing more homework is necessarily more rigorous. I believe it’s just more. Academic rigor is the educational experience that engages students in content to help themContinue reading “What is Academic Rigor?”

A Job Well Done
Do you ever wonder why you do something? I do. In fact, I ask our staff that question a lot. However, there has never been a question about the “Why” of WCS.

Why Christian education?
I hope you’ve been enjoying Easter Break. We have been enjoying slow mornings with coffee on the back porch. At least Kim and I have been. Zach has been working on his American Sign Language class.
