The Western International School of Shanghai is the first and only full-continuum IB World School in mainland China offering the four programmes of the International Baccalaureate (IB).  This allows us to provide the entire and unbroken IB curriculum model leading to the world's most sought-after qualification for university entry.


At WISS, we are dedicated to the IB Mission of creating a better world through education. As an IB World School, WISS has been visited, inspected, and approved by the International Baccalaureate Organization.


IB World Schools maintain their high quality through the regular professional development of staff, effective delivery of cutting-edge teaching practice, and a rigorous approach to inquiry-based learning. Schools authorized by the IB must put students at the center of everything they do, treat learning holistically from multiple perspectives, emphasize strong communication skills, and promote intercultural awareness. The IB conducts regular evaluations to ensure schools provide a learning culture aligned with its international philosophy and goals.
