WISS is an exceptional school. My immediate experience when visiting with my 1-year-old was that it is a school that places great emphasis on family, with a close-knit and welcoming community of parents and staff.

The best school ever, it’s so amazing and I am depressed now that I left because I miss it so much.

The school is actually fantastic! My daughter is in Primary, she loves there!! She loves school homework, the teachers follow up her work a lot. School provides diversity of activities too. She is going to attend Middle school soon, both my husband and I are very confident about her performance there.
