Exciting new accreditation for WISS

The Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) is back to school for its 10th year, and is brimming with excitement for the year ahead! Not only does 2015-2016 bring celebrations for our big birthday, but it will also see continued academic, arts and sporting success, as our students capitalize on the tremendous achievements of last year.

We also start the school year with extra feathers in our cap! Over the last school year, WISS went through their WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accreditation and passed with flying colors! We were granted the maximum accreditation of six years. WASC noted our exceptionally caring community and our commitment to enabling children to pursue their passions.

Already fully authorized by the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization), WISS is adding to its reputation as the only three-program IB international school in Shanghai by starting the IB Career-related Program (IBCP). This will make us one of just 24 schools in the world where you can study all of the IB programs.
