Not Just Another IB School
In SmartShanghai’s “Brand Stories” article series, we endeavor to put the shine on the industry innovators in Shanghai. We look to work with people who are raising the bar in their respective fields in this city, and in doing so, are contributing something valuable and singular to enrich the collective community of Shanghai as a whole. We try to bring attention to, and celebrate, the businesses and brands that are doing something inspiring — something unique. Something… *dare we say it*…. bad-ass. Look at that TIGER Mascot. In the spotlight today, we’re proud and excited to feature the Western International School of Shanghai. WISS is the city’s only full-continuum International Baccalaureate (IB) that offers all four IB programs. They combine an unparalleled unique-in-China IB program regiment, internationally proven and implemented best-practice inquiry-based learning, an amazing student-to-teacher ratio, and state-of-the-art campus facilities to forge, inspire, and cultivate the international citizens of tomorrow’s world. They’ve got an aeronautics program. Did your high school have an aeronautics program? I think we had, like… “gym”. “English”. Y’know. Stuff like that.
