EMPLOYEE PERSPECTIVES

Wichita Collegiate is a place where you know you're going to be challenged as a professional but also have the support and autonomy to be successful. The WCS community is supportive, involved, and on the same team. I could not be more happy and proud to work at WCS.

Hanale Vincent  

   Head of Middle School

What I appreciate about working at Collegiate is the ability to let learning expand as unique opportunities arrive. For instance when a student traveling to the United Arab Emirates sent us videos of her experiences in real time, I didn't have to worry that it would take us off my course timeline because we have a school that embraces real life learning experiences.

Meghan Smith  

   6th Grade Global Studies Teacher

Collegiate affords its students the best opportunity for academic, social, and athletic growth, but it also creates an environment where teachers can be creative and work with some of the best minds in the city. This place is special, and I am proud to be a member of its faculty.
