Board of Trustees

The WOLCS Board of Trustees and administration have set their sights on moving the school from Good to Great. Most recently, we completed a major expansion that has created a state-of-the-art facility that now houses all grades K-8 in one building.  

True to the school's mission, we will continue to empower children to become lifelong learners in the areas of science, technology and the humanities by exposing them to innovative ways of teaching and learning, while preparing them for the challenges of the 21st Century.
