Wix Brown School Profile
Wix-Brown has been a part of the Langley community since 1961. Our 160 students reflect the diversity of South Langley and include many first-generation Canadian families coming from Vietnam, India, Korea, and Germany. The school community encourages our students to take pride in their unique ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Key challenges facing our school are a declining rural population. Most students are transported by bus. Our dedicated staff, PAC, and other volunteers work towards positive change and strive to support each student in achieving their personal best in a safe and caring school environment. We emphasize our B.E.A.R.S. values of Best Effort, Encourage, Accepting, Responsible, and Success. Efforts to enhance school community spirit include our annual First Day School-wide BBQ, Family Fun Fair, a Spring Fair, Christmas gatherings, spring concerts, sports teams, family movie nights, and a variety of programs hosted by our PAC.
We have 10-15% of students receiving support through the Aboriginal Program and 8-10% of students receiving English Language support. Our school has a very strong team of Resource Teachers and Education Assistants who facilitate individual and small group support, providing adaptations and modifications to students’ learning programs. Our dynamic team of teachers have attended training at the district level in strategies to use in teaching for different learning styles. The Daily 5 literacy supports can be seen in classes from grade 1 to 7.
