Changsha WES Academy
Changsha WES Academy (CWA) is the first and only international school located in Hunan Province that uses English as the primary language of instruction. In order to attract more foreign investors to Changsha City and Hunan Province at large, the Changsha National Economic and Technical Development Zone Administrative Committee (CETZAC) decided that it was necessary to establish a quality international school for the children of its foreign investors. Thus, CWA was established in cooperation with Worldwide Education Services (WES Group), to provide an international education for the children of expatriate and SAR families.
CWA opened as an Elementary School for children in Grades 1-5 on 1st September 2010 at a temporary site. On 14th February 2011, the school moved to the brand new school campus, which is on a 27,000m2 site at the corner of Dongyi and Beidou roads in Xingsha, an eastern suburb of Changsha City. At the same time, the Early Years section opened for children aged 3-5. Currently, CWA offers classes for children up to Grade 9 (age 15). As the international community in the Changsha area grows, CWA intends to expand upwards and eventually offer classes through Grade 12.
CWA has been approved as an International School by the PRC Ministry of Education and is a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS). In May 2014, CWA was authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) as an IB World School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
This year, the newly started Middle School has just started to implement a programme based on the Next Chapter of the International Baccalaureate’s Middle Years Programme (MYP). This curriculum framework, designed for students aged 11—16, encourages students to become critical and reflective thinkers.
For sharing the international education with local students, the new school, Changsha WES (Bilingual) Academy (CWB), has been started for Chinese students this year.
