STUDENT EXCHANGES

Annual conferences rotate between the GAIL school host countries. 

Students collaborate and explore together to develop contemporary solutions to international issues. 


The Western International School of Shanghai is proud to have hosted the GAIL annual conference in the Summer of 2019.

WISS students can develop international-mindedness through interactive classroom activities and collaboration with other GAIL schools on shared units. 


Students develop their understanding of the relevant IB education program and add additional elements of international understanding. 

This is also an opportunity for rich professional development where teachers can work with other teachers worldwide.

Student exchanges offer upper MYP students the opportunity to experience life at one of our partner schools in Australia, New Zealand, India, or the USA for an extended period and allow students from one of our partner schools to receive a WISS education for part of a semester.


This unique and exciting opportunity broadens a student’s horizons and makes a massive difference in that student’s life.
