Overview

The Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) is a forward-looking school that has been inspiring young people from around the world since 2006. This year, WISS celebrates 15 years of excellence in education. WISS challenges and empowers students through an unparalleled IB education.

WISS is a leading international school in Shanghai and the first and only full continuum IB World 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). – WISS broadens the minds of the children in our care through innovative, high-quality, inquiry-based learning and teaching, with individualized student pathways.

Our unrivaled IBCP creates a highly personalized curriculum that gives Grade 11 – 12 students in Shanghai the unique opportunity to take university-level classes in Art & Design, Aeronautics, and Business & Sustainability while still in high school.

Students from over 40 different countries create an exciting blend of cultures that provides our learning community with a unique opportunity to promote new perspectives and explore challenging aspects of the world around us.

We continually strive for high standards of professional performance in international education and hold WASC Accreditation. Additionally, WISS was recently granted membership in the Council of International Schools (CIS), which is the first step towards obtaining CIS Accreditation.

Our small student-teacher ratio allows our students a personalized and flexible learning experience. WISS places an emphasis on student-centered learning, both inside and outside the classroom walls. As part of our balanced curriculum, our students are able to 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 for students ages 2.5-17+. Throughout these age groups, our academics place a strong focus on student-centered learning. We combine academic rigor with a focus on Creative Arts through our Visual Arts, Music, Drama, and Film and Media 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. Following the IB philosophy, we nurture our students to inquire, think independently, and drive their own learning. WISS cultivates healthy, balanced, confident and ethical people; striving to challenge and stimulate students to inquire, wonder, discover, and create each day. We aim to send into the world brave, compassionate, internationally minded global citizens with the skill and intellect to help shape the future.
