Beijing - School Report Question and Answers
How would you rate the school's support and welcome/integration of new students and their families, and why?
Very supportive. My high schooler has attended 7 schools and said the staff and kids welcomed her from the first day. All of my kids were assigned a buddy on their first day and all found the staff and students helpful and kind in welcoming them. - Dec 2022
Incredible! I feel the transition to WAB was extremely smooth and this was in the midst of the pandemic. I feel this was because of the culture of WAB that is deeply built on inclusion and SEL in the early years. I felt all teachers involved with my children know them on a deep level and know not just academic achievements, but their emotional and personal achievements as well. - Nov 2022
They do a good job but you will get more out of the school if you get involved: Attend the parent coffees, join the class WeChat groups and volunteer. Many compounds also have unoffical WAB family WeChat groups which are also helpful. - Mar 2021
The school assigns each new student a ‘buddy’ to help each new child integrate and feel like part of the community. There is zero tolerance for bullying. That said, this is a British school and they rarely involve parents unless there is a serious issue. - Mar 2019
Good, admissions and counselors are great and helpful. - Apr 2018
