ACADEMICS  OVERVIEW

The Western International School of Shanghai is a leading international school in Shanghai and the first and only full continuum World IB School in Mainland China, offering the four programmes of the International Baccalaureate (IB): The Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), the Middle Years Programme (IBMYP), the Diploma Programme (IBDP), and the Career-related Programme (IBCP).


Our small student-teacher ratio allows our students a personalized and flexible learning experience. WISS emphasizes student-centered learning, both inside and outside the classroom walls. As part of our balanced curriculum, our students can choose from a wide variety of creative arts courses and athletic offerings.


At the Western International School of Shanghai, we offer a globalized international education to students ages 2.5-17+. Our academics place a strong focus on student-centered learning throughout these age groups. We combine academic rigor with a focus on creative arts through our visual arts, music, and performing arts programs.


As an international school in Shanghai, China, we believe our student’s learning experience should reflect the globally-minded, diverse, and technological world we live in. We nurture our students to inquire, think independently, and drive their own learning following the IB philosophy.

WHY STUDENTS THRIVE AT WISS

Students thrive when they better understand who they are and what it takes to experience personal success.  At WISS, our focus on the development of the whole child ensures that students are cognizant of their strengths, interests, and personal areas of growth.  This knowledge of self enables students to make better choices about their learning and how they will prepare for the demands of future academics and the 21st Century workplace.  


Teachers at WISS play a key role in ensuring this happens.  Taking a personal investment in every child's learning, teachers find time to work with students individually when needed, as well as regularly provide feedback in class.  They inspire and encourage student interests and passions, enabling them to explore and develop these further.  Teachers are also keenly aware of student challenges socially, emotionally, and academically.  With their guidance, students can navigate the internal obstacles of this transformative period in life.   


The overwhelming belief in community is another reason students flourish at WISS.  A sense of belonging and kinship is vital to building relationships with peers and teachers.  The confidence that comes from being accepted as a valued community member empowers our young learners to be the best they can be as students and future Global Citizens.
