Summary

In Wizard Class, Jerry tells Alex, Justin and Max about WIPS and can send mail instantly by using a portal key. Justin learns he got accepted into WizTech, a wizard boarding school for the summer. While Jerry, Theresa, and Justin go shopping for Justin's wizard robes ('bathrobes'), Alex has to tidy up her mess in the living room. Alex uses the portal key to send the mess to her room, but this fails and the whole house gets sent up to her room. It's unknown as to how Alex got the mess out of her room, as the staircase went up as well. So Jerry and Theresa decide that Alex must go to WizTech over the summer to learn how to be more responsible, and to not use magic like a shortcut.

While Justin excels and is thought of as cool, Alex has a little more trouble, only to have made friends with Hugh Normus, a kid who believes he is a giant. Meanwhile, Max and Jerry go on a camp-out on the terrace, in order to prove their 'manliness' to Theresa. Later, Alex tries to escape Wiztech by sending herself home using the portal key, but incidentally sends herself to the mail-sorting room, where Dr. Evilini catches her and literally pulls out the 'discipline bucket'. While Alex scrubs the floors of WizTech, she finds Dr. Evilini's messenger fish and learns of Dr. Evilini's plan is to drain Justin of his powers.
