We share why its important for parents to attend school open house events.


There are numerous benefits of joining a school open house event for parents. Firstly, parents can receive valuable information on the school’s curriculum, extracurricular activities, and educational offerings. They can also gain insight into the school culture and atmosphere by speaking with the faculty and staff. Additionally, parents can build relationships with teachers and administrators that will be important for their children’s educational journey.

Poetry can be seen as a form of self-expression – a way for people to share their thoughts, feelings, and emotions creatively and uniquely. For many, poetry can be a therapeutic outlet, providing a space to explore personal thoughts and experiences. It can also be a way to connect with others, sharing stories and perspectives in a way that can create understanding and connection.


Poetry can take many forms, from traditional rhyming verse to free-form or experimental pieces. There are no rules or boundaries, which can make writing a very freeing and liberating form. Whether you're looking to express yourself creatively, explore your emotions, or connect with others, poetry can be a powerful tool.

Doing and experiencing are key components of meaningful learning. Indeed, our learning process should go far beyond the frontiers of the classroom. As learners, we can demonstrate a personal commitment to service and act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and to the environment.

The international school experience is an exciting and excellent opportunity for students to form new and diverse friendships, explore new challenges, and participate in various sports and co-curricular activities.

But for your child to have these experiences, you must first find the right school.

When applying to most international schools, the skills of prospective students are evaluated, and their experiences are considered. This process often includes student placement assessments and interviews with admissions and academic leadership.

However, applying doesn't need to be stressful. We suggest you take your time to find the best fit and consider your child's specific needs as part of the process.

At the Western International School of Shanghai, we understand that one of the biggest challenges parents face is choosing the best-fit school for their child. To assist parents with this important process, we share five expert steps and tips to help you get the most out of your search for that best-fit school.

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.

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.
