Experience matters

WIS is the oldest international school in Lower Silesia (est. 2002) and has the honor of being the first school in Poland authorized as an IB World School (since 2010) to deliver both the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years (MYP) programmes. The school is based on 30 years of modern educational experience of schools run by Foundation for International Education (F.I.E.), a Polish public charity organization.

Many classes of our graduates continue their education in our sister – school International High School of Wroclaw (located in the same campus). Many of them are doing great in their professional and social life today, admitting how much they own to the school and WIS teachers.

Our faculty is a carefully selected and truly international team of experienced professionals from all over the world, specializing in bilingual and international teaching and constantly developing their pedagogical skills and improving teaching techniques, thanks to participation in the IB and other workshops on a regular basis.
