At Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy, grading policies and practices are thoughtfully designed to promote academic excellence, foster a growth mindset, and empower students to reach their full potential. WYWLA believes in a grading system that accurately reflects students' mastery of the subject. Teachers provide timely and constructive feedback to help students understand their strengths and areas for improvement. Moreover, the emphasis is placed not only on the final grades but also on the learning process itself. This approach encourages students to take risks, embrace challenges, and view setbacks as opportunities for growth rather than obstacles. WYWLA also values the development of essential leadership skills, including effective communication and collaboration, which are integrated into the grading process through various class activities and projects. With a commitment to supporting each student's individual learning journey, Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy ensures a nurturing environment where every young woman can thrive academically and develop into confident, well-rounded leaders.
