Research informs us as educators that creativity within curriculums enhances intellect, metacognition, creative, independent thinking, and innovation, skills essential to the future of our children and society. At the Western International School of Shanghai (WISS), we believe that every child is an individual with unique talents. As part of the WISS Education, we aspire to empower students to unlock their talents and reach their potential as creative thinkers, innovators, and problem solvers.

At the Western International School of Shanghai (WISS), Arts form an essential part of our balanced international curriculum.

The WISS curriculum is built on four pillars: Academics, Sports, Arts, and Community Service. We provide students with the opportunities to explore the elements of being successful artists and learners of the arts. Learning through Arts is fundamental to the development of the whole child and nurtures students to think creatively and critically, explore the unfamiliar, innovate, and experiment.

We are delighted to share another inspirational WISS alumni story. Noam Segev, a WISS IB Career-related Propgramme (SCAD) graduate, is currently studying photography at Kingston University in London, United Kingdom.

Noam is a creative and artistically versatile person, who makes the most of the opportunities she is given. She is studying photography and has already had the chance to exhibit her work at the Kingston Museum in London.

Noam is, without a doubt, an artist with a personal seal whose goal is to create art and inspire people through the lens of her camera.

Creating a culture of international mindedness at WISS not only supports the school’s mission and vision but also allows our students to connect to the global community, to learn from others and to develop their global citizenship.


Developing attributes of the Learner Profile, such as being Open-minded, Principled and Caring, plays an important role in expanding our understanding of international mindedness. Students in Early Years and Primary learn to show respect and tolerance towards others by acknowledging the feelings and opinions of others and sharing their own feelings and ideas with their peers. They learn to be open-minded and empathetic by including others in their games, treating others with dignity and consideration, especially if they speak a different language or come from a different cultural background. They also demonstrate international mindedness by acting with integrity, for example making new students feel welcome, and actively sharing their cultural traditions, stories and beliefs.

A vital element of the Career-related Programme is the study of Personal and Professional Skills. Students acquire skills that support learning, life, and work over the two-year course, covering five main subjects: Applied Ethics, Intercultural Understanding, Personal Development, Effective Communication, and Thinking Processes.


Applied Ethics is the application of ethics to real-world problems and attempts to answer the question of how people should act in specific situations. While studying Applied Ethics as part of the Personal and Professional Skills Programme, students will analyze, discuss and debate ethical dilemmas in general life, progressing to dilemmas more specific to the workplace and their career-related studies.
