At the Western International School of Shanghai (WISS), we prioritize learning in four key areas: Academics, Sports, Arts, and Community Service. Art is an integral part of our curriculum, spanning across the Early Years, Primary, and Secondary schools.
The Arts are essential as it provides numerous benefits for students. First and foremost, it enables students to express themselves creatively and develop their unique voices. It also helps students develop valuable life skills such as critical thinking, communication, and emotional awareness. Additionally, art education promotes cultural understanding and appreciation, which is crucial in our increasingly diverse world. By incorporating art into our curriculum, we nurture students to become well-rounded individuals capable of making meaningful contributions to society.
