WISS will receive a final Authorization visit from the IB this coming March and is ready to welcome its first DP cohort of students in September 2010.

wiss-ib-sWestern International School of Shanghai (WISS) has already received their IB Diploma Program (DP) Pre-Authorization visit from Nigel Forbes-Harper, IB Regional Head of School Services, Asia-Pacific region. During the visit, Mr. Forbes-Harper assessed the facilities and met with WISS staff and students and the management team. He strongly agreed with the program being offered at WISS and is confident the school will continue to develop and retain its position as a leading IB school in China. He noted in his Pre-Authorization Report that WISS “is committed to developing in students the qualities, attitudes and characteristics described in the IB learner profile. There was strong evidence of this throughout the school, which is already involved in implementing PYP and MYP.”

Tom Kline, WISS Secondary School Principal, believes that the IBDP preparations are well underway with the appointment of a new DP Coordinator, additional recruitment, additional training of staff, and brand new facilities. Mr. Kline noted, “The students who move through WISS will have gained a holistic, communicative and culturally aware perspective that is needed to be a truly global citizen. This is the great advantage of having a school committed to providing all three IB programmes and our DP will be one of the best options for G11 and G12 students in Shanghai.”
