IWA students should use their current class schedule along with the 2021-2022 Textbook List to identify their required textbooks. The IWA Textbook List denotes whether each text is required to be purchased in print or digital version, or whether it is the student’s choice.
Our weekly e-newsletter, "The Weekly Word," provides families with essential information about upcoming school events, policies, student and faculty news, and more. Many questions about what's happening at IWA are answered in the newsletter, which is emailed every Friday afternoon during the school year (excluding breaks) at 3 p.m. An archive of the newsletter is here. "The Weekly Word" is sent to students, parents and guardians automatically.
