A Community of Lifelong Learners
Since becoming authorized to teach the Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate in 2011 WIS has recognized a desire on behalf of our graduating MYP students, as well as the parent community who identified a need for a high school programme, to continue their education with us. From this a vision of having a high school available, and a continuum of programmes, by the 2014-15 school year was drafted and, a thorough feasibility study began in early 2012. In January 2014 International High School of Wroclaw was officially registered and recognized by the Polish Ministry of Education authorities.
International High School of Wroclaw is authorized by IB to offer the Diploma Programme. The school as an IB World School shares a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that International High School of Wroclaw – Foundation of International Education believes is important for our students.
