Mission Statement:  
We believe that every student has the right to have the opportunity to develop his or her talents to the highest level.  The needs of high ability students differ from others in rate of learning, capacity for in-depth learning, and need for diversity.  Therefore, these students need to be provided with an environment that is both stimulating and challenging and that is able to accommodate their abilities.

These students benefit from an emphasis on problem-solving, decision-making, critical thinking, research, and leadership skills.  This is accomplished through enrichment, acceleration and differentiation of the curriculum, and diversification of supplemental materials. 

We believe that parents play an integral part in the education of high ability students.  Their support of the student and school is essential for success.  

Furthermore, we believe it is important that each student is given support and guidance in their affective development and leadership ability so that each will be able to utilize his or her abilities out of a healthy sense of self.  

Wawasee recognizes that high ability learners can be found in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
