Students of the Western International School of Shanghai’s wonderfully talented Class of 2019 have been accepted into top-ranked universities all around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, and our home country of China. But these impressive results don’t tell the whole story. “Inspiring minds to shape the future” isn’t just a motto at WISS.
As an IB World School, WISS is dedicated to nurturing and supporting every student as they pursue their unique interests and passions. Some of the various fields our students have chosen to focus on include Business Management, Economics, Engineering, Film, Geology, Medicine, Psychology, and Sports Management. Other students are charging forward and taking initiative by launching a start-up company, beginning their career in hospitality, pursuing further development and training in music, tackling intensive language study, or fulfilling their national service duties.
WISS’s child-focused approach begins in Pre-Nursery and continues until students cross the stage to receive their diploma. Whether it’s helping them find just the right university and program, equipping them with the skills and confidence to begin their career or continue learning through internships, or inspiring them to pursue their passion or to take action in the world through service; WISS students are prepared to take on the challenges of life after graduation. College and Careers Counselor, Mr. Chris Wilcox summed up our excitement best, “The Class of 2019 is a lively and vivacious group that will make a great impact on our world as they pursue their next steps in life after WISS.” We are proud of the Class of 2019 and celebrate their many successes – which are as diverse as they are!
