Opening August 2022 in Hanoi, Westlink International School (WIS) will be a member of the International Schools Partnership (ISP). The partnership with ISP provides extensive benefits of best practice and resources in a network of nearly 60 schools worldwide in 16 countries, to ensure all students experience Amazing Learning.
As a brand new school in the western West Lake area of Hanoi, WIS offers state-of-the-art facilities and an ultra-modern campus that spreads over 2.5 hectares of open, green spaces. In 2022, WIS will open its primary school and ultimately cater to students from Prep through to Grade 12. WIS students can enroll in 2 pathways to reach university: (1) the International Program that combines US common core standards and the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB), or (2) the Integrated Program that links Vietnam’s MOET standards with a modified International Program. Both International and Integrated programs include a combination of core subjects including English, Mathematics and Science, and specialist areas of Art, Music, ICT, PE and Drama. The rigorous curriculum standards will provide essential academic knowledge as well as professional skills such as critical thinking and international perspectives. WIS aims to ensure that every student is fully equipped to successfully enter university anywhere in the world.
Only highly qualified and experienced teachers with both Vietnamese and international teaching experience will be employed at WIS. The School’s philosophy promotes the student’s central role in an inquiry-based learning environment, where active participation in exploring, asking and researching develops personal responsibility and resilience.
WIS programs aim to develop students’ passion to be inquisitive world citizens who can transform themselves and contribute to a better world.
