To support our students' progress, we assign each student a teacher advisor to track all aspects of his/her development - academic, social, and emotional. In addition, our High School Counselor works closely with families to identify the most suitable high school options for their students and assist them with applications, whether they choose to go overseas or to stay in China.
This is especially important for students considering schooling overseas. There are thousands of boarding school options for students in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia, ranging in size from large (over 1,000 students) to small (around 100 students), in urban, suburban and rural settings, and both coeducational and single sex, each with its own unique ethos. Finding the "best fit" for the student can be a daunting task, as there is no "best school" - there is only the best school for the student. Our experienced High School Counseling team guides parents and students through the entire school selection and application process - identifying suitable schools, arranging visits and interviews, scheduling standardized tests, expediting applications and counseling both families and students in all their concerns. WIS also organizes boarding school tours open to parents and students in younger years so they can develop an understanding of their options and craft their application strategies over a longer term.
Summer holidays provide students interested in overseas school with a special opportunity to expand their learning, challenge themselves, and improve their English in a new, experiential and enjoyable environment. Our High School Counselor provides families with a wealth of information on international camps and summer school programs so students can use the valuable summer months in a constructive but enjoyable way.
Where are they now?
WIS graduates can be found in excellent international programs throughout China and around the world, including the United States, Australia, and the UK. Here are some of our former students' comments on their experiences in their new environments and their preparation at WIS.
“I spent two years at WIS and currently I’m studying in Stoneleigh Burnham School, an American boarding girls’ school. Personally speaking, I really think WIS is a great place to help prepare students for studying abroad in future. At WIS, I learned a lot English, speaking with native English speakers and I can meet people from all around the world. So my English had been improved a lot at WIS and help me get ready for high school study abroad. I wish WBS to be greater and greater and hope WIS students can explore their own interest as much as they can.” - Carol Fu (傅佳乐), Class of 2017
“I graduated from WIS last year. I attend St Edmund School in UK. I had a happy time when I was still at Wahaha International School Hangzhou. I got along well with all my classmates. I enjoyed various kinds of courses at WIS. And thanks to Wahaha Middle School very much that provided me a series of special courses to help me prepare for studying in the UK high school.“ - William Lu (卢威臣), Class of 2017
