Parents at WISS

Families joining the WISS community for the first time have often remarked how warmly they were welcomed when their children enrolled in our school.
WISS values and encourages parental involvement, inviting parents to become an integral part of the school community. Their involvement is essential in contributing to and building a community that fosters personal and educational excellence.

Parent Association

The Parents Association (PA) automatically includes the parents/guardians of all students currently enrolled at WISS.

The PA is an extension of WISS that aims to support and implement WISS Mission and Core Values to the greater community. As a caring community, we believe that outreach to new and current families is essential to embracing the WISS Mission and Vision. It is committed to organizing activities and events, establishing a constructive dialogue and feedback with the school administrators, and creating a warm and caring community.

Classroom/Grade Level Reps

Classroom  (Early Years and Primary) and Grade Level Reps (Secondary) support your children’s teachers when needed, help to connect parents by creating and maintaining a classroom contact list and WeChat group, and help the parent community to stay informed about activities and events.

 

Welcome Committee

Creating a hospitable environment for new and returning families by hosting relaxed and enjoyable events organized throughout the year – such as day trips, coffee gatherings and receptions – reaching out to families to ease their transition and create opportunities for greater interaction and communication within the school community.

Initiative Team

The PA Initiative Team contributes by sharing their experience and ideas about parent involvement in school to further develop the WISS Parent Association and its activities.
As an IB World school, WISS is dedicated to the IB Mission of developing “develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect” and encouraging students “to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners”. Therefore, the PA embodies WISS’s compassionate spirit by supporting a variety of community service and charity efforts throughout the year.

What Parents Say About WISS

I like the way WISS supports art and creativity. Kids are encouraged to develop their talent in all topics, from music to theatre, from painting to dancing, as well as all the other subjects, and they can express themselves in multiple ways.

WISS was the only school that made us realize that we had not come to a wrong city; the admission staff at WISS were extremely cordial and welcoming. A few minutes of talking over the phone made us decide to choose WISS-and then the journey began. As time passes, slowly, we forgot that we are away from India in our first ever assignment abroad. No other school than WISS would have done justice to our requirement and the criteria we were looking at in a school to build our children’s future

We had the opportunity to tour a few international schools in Shanghai but after visiting WISS, there really wasn’t any question as to which school would be the best fit for our girls.  The size of the school and the welcoming community feel of WISS during our visit made the decision very easy.
