WISS community ready to guide and shape your next chapter

Dear WISS students:

You have changed. You are different. You have grown. Your experiences this summer have shaped you and we can’t wait to hear about them!

Did you perfect any new fidget spinner moves?

Did you get to dab with new friends?

Was there a song, a sunset, a show that inspired you?

Did you try something new? Did you succeed? Or fail? How did you respond?

The Western International School of Shanghai community is ready — to guide and shape the next chapter of your life journey. This year, you will expand your knowledge both wide and deep. For things you already know, you will go even deeper into the subject. But then, there will be brand-new information, concepts, and skills introduced to you. You will also be encouraged and challenged to make ethical and just decisions. We will look at the world together — at WISS, in Xujing, in Shanghai, in China, on this entire planet to see how we can use our knowledge to strengthen our communities and make a better world. And when you are inspired to take action, the WISS community will be here to support you.

For those of you in Primary Years Program, we are looking forward to taking a deeper look into your Units of Inquiries as you continue to explore how this world is interconnected.

For those in the Middle Years Program, you will be continuing your journey of discovery as you wonder and inquire into the complexity of real-world issues. For our Diploma Program students, these are the years where you will hone in on what motivates you and be challenged to think critically and deeply through your trans-disciplinary studies. And for our inaugural career-related program cohort, this year you will be able to focus on your passion in production arts or sports combining the technical skills, as well as academic rigor in these subjects.

We believe in you and we are ready for another year of “inspiring minds to shape the future.”
