WIS offers 3 high – quality IB Programmes, which:
Informed by values described in the IB Learner Profile, WIS students strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective.
These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success.
Throughout all IB programmes, students develop approaches to learning skills and the attributes of the IB learner profile. Students are able to take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge itself is constructed. Students are encouraged to try different approaches to learning and to take responsibility for their own educational progress.
The IB Primary Years Programme – PYP, is a transdisciplinary, inquiry-based and student-centred education with responsible action at its core. Through the PYP, students experience learning that is engaging, significant, challenging and relevant as it spans between, across and beyond traditional subject boundaries.
