That means that every child’s education is built around what works best for the individual student and incorporates our Competency Based System (CBS) where students advance to the next learning level only when they have shown mastery, or understanding, of a learning topic. CBS does away with social promotion by requiring students to fully engage in their learning. The WPS philosophy is that the most important day in a student’s academic career is the day AFTER graduation.
