"When my children first attended WYIS, only my two eldest children (Arthur and Pauline) could speak English. The other two (Édouard and Charles) couldn’t speak or understand anything. It was really difficult for them. But their teachers and other students helped them a lot. Even if they couldn’t understand anything, in the beginning, they were encouraged every day and praised for their growth.
After two years, my children have grown a lot! I have never seen my son Édouard so happy at school before. At WYIS, he has found a safe place to learn and has made friendships from around the world. My youngest son Charles speaks like an American now and he’s so happy to go to school every day. My daughter is also very happy at WYIS. She has discovered the real significance of the words: community, respect, and friendship.
As a parent, I have enjoyed all the events that WYIS has to offer. Some of my favorites have been International Day, Christmas events, Sciences fair, Graduation, and all the different showcases. Even though English is not my first language, everyone has been so welcoming and encouraging.
The last thing I have to say is MERCI! Thank you so much to the teachers who have taught my children and thank you for being welcoming and encouraging to my family. This has been an amazing experience and is a favorite memory of our lives. We are proud to be part of the WYIS community."
"We have been at this school for three years and our children have learned a lot. They can now understand, read, and speak English fluently. They even prefer to read books or watch TV in English rather than in Spanish or French. They have met a lot of new friends from different countries.
At WYIS they have been very happy, the other students and teachers are all very respectful. The American learning method of WYIS has been a great discovery for us. It does not focus on memorization of facts for a single exam, rather it emphasizes a good work ethic throughout the year and a holistic education. Individual and collective projects, presentations to the class, and other activities have been an effective way to teach my children. They really had an enjoyable time in the classroom at WYIS."
"WYIS is the first international school our children have attended. We have experienced a great learning environment with knowledgeable and patient teachers who have a strong passion for helping their students grow. We are very fortunate to be here.
The biggest change we've seen in our children is their interest in reading, especially for English books. They were already interested in reading before coming to Wuhan, but after receiving encouragement from their teachers and classmates, they enjoy reading more during their spare time. They have built a positive reading habit that we believe will benefit them throughout their life.
Another big change is that they are now more open-minded, creative, and respect multi-cultural differences. Students at WYIS are encouraged to think creatively. Our children have worked on different types of projects at school, some by themselves, and some with their classmates. While working on projects, they have learned how to look up information, organize data with their own thoughts and opinions, and present to others in their own words. They have also learned how to communicate and cooperate with their classmates during group projects. With classmates from all over the world, they have learned how to respect others with different cultures."
Want to Get Connected?
Let us know. We’d love to help you get plugged in.
There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer at WYIS. Volunteering offers a huge resource and support base for the school community while showing their kids the importance of participating in the larger community.
By interacting with teachers, administrators, and other parents on a regular basis, you'll gain a firsthand understanding of your child's daily activities. You'll also tap into trends and fads of school life that can help you communicate with your kids as they grow and change (all without intruding on their privacy or personal space).
Here are just some of the ways a parent volunteer can help:
- act as a classroom helper
- help organize, cater, or work at fundraising activities
- help to plan and chaperone in-school events
- organize or assist with a specific club or interest group
- assist coaches and PE teachers with sports and fitness programs or work in the school concession stand at sporting events
- volunteer in the library with story time or reading help
- sew costumes or build sets for drama or musical productions
- work with the school band or choir
- help out with our visual arts department on crafts and projects
- hold a workshop for students in trade or technical programs
- volunteer to speak in the classroom or at a career day
- supervise or judge experiments at a science fair
Have other ideas? We’re always looking for ways to involve our parents.
