Ni Hao and Welcome to Wahaha Schools! It is my privilege to introduce you to the exciting and innovative learning community that is Wahaha Schools. I am grateful for your interest and this opportunity to personally thank you for your virtual visit to our schools.
Wahaha Schools consist of Wahaha International School (WIS) and Wahaha Bilingual School (WBS), both located in the historic and picturesque city of Hangzhou, China. Our mission has always been to provide a superior international educational experience for elementary and middle school aged students utilizing the best of Eastern and Western instructional practices, rooted in the inquiry and exploratory methods of teaching and learning. It is our goal to prepare each of our students to be a life-long learner equipped with the skills necessary to be a responsible global citizen in the 21st Century. At Wahaha Schools, we enroll a diverse group of students, in the belief that our students benefit from interacting with children of various talents and backgrounds.
From the first day we opened ours doors, we have been a highly respected school in the community grounded in the development of critical thinkers and enhanced by core Chinese culture and language programs. Here at Wahaha Schools we provide a rich learning experience for students in Kindergarten through Grade 9; creating an environment of Curiosity & Courage; Appreciation & Accountability; Resolve & Resourcefulness, and Excellence & Enthusiasm (CARE). This is a place where learning comes to life!
Jean Piaget stated, "The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men and women who are capable of doing new things.” This quote concisely pulls together the main philosophies behind the exploratory, inquiry-based instruction on which Wahaha Schools were built.
Every student within Wahaha Schools is unique, and our highly-qualified faculty, who come from countries all over the world, are trained and committed to nurturing those unique qualities in each student. In our family-like atmosphere, strong relationships are built between the teacher and student and between the parents and school. We believe these partnerships are essential for a fulfilling educational experience.
Our website will give you but a small taste of all there is to offer at Wahaha Schools, but no one truly brings to life the excitement of our school community better than the students and teachers themselves. We welcome your interest and invite you to please join us for a tour to see and hear for yourself the exhilaration of learning. We look forward to meeting you!
