Mission & Vision

Governance & History


The Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) has been educating young people from across the globe in a caring and inspirational environment since 2006. Working with students from the age of 3 to 18, we have 48 different nationalities exploring challenging aspects of the world around us and experiencing the joys of inquiry-based learning. As an IB World School, WISS is uniquely placed to promote new perspectives and broaden the minds of the children in our care, and deepen their sense of understanding and wonder. WISS prizes communication, holistic learning and intercultural awareness and is the perfect place for truly international families who are bringing up their children to be global citizens. WISS is a heady blend of nationalities, cultures and ethnicities, all eager to contribute to the life of our school and the wider community around us. Whether our students are with us for a year or two, or stay through to graduation and move on to the university of their dreams, we want our young people to look back on WISS as a time when their love to learn was awakened and they began to touch the lives of those around them.
