A warm welcome from our Principal

Welcome to International School of Wuxi High School!

I’m honored to serve as a Principal here. Our school is dedicated to nurturing globally-minded future leaders in various career fields, which means our High School team supports our students academically, physically, socially and emotionally, helping them reach their full potential.

We offer a wide range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses, both on-site and online, to enhance our students’ academic experience. Our High School athletes have the opportunity to compete in the Suzhou Youth Athletic Competition Athletics League, as well as LifePlus tournaments involving other international schools across China.

But that’s not all. We prioritize the development of every child’s social and emotional skills through daily advisory meetings, and we offer plenty of co-curricular activites beyond the classroom to encourage students to explore their interests and to develop their leadership skills.

It brings us great joy to see our students succeed, and to send them off to their dream colleges and universities knowing they have eveything they need to become exceptional leaders on a global scale.
