Purpose and Mission
As an independent, college preparatory school, Wisconsin International School (WIS) students excel in a comprehensive, transdisciplinary curriculum. We cultivate a passion for learning, promote leadership skills and develop the ability to serve & thrive in the global community.
Our unique student, parent, faculty, and school board relationship strengthens WIS. We promote our children’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development by communicating, practicing and instilling our school values.
Vision and Philosophy
At the core of Wisconsin International School’s value system is a sense of fairness, honesty and responsibility. Our challenging curriculum and supportive learning environment strives to provide developmentally appropriate programs that allow using state of the art technology and the latest studies in early childhood brain research and learning styles between the different genders.
At WIS, we draw strength from our diversity and character education. Our aim is to instill a sense of pride in our school, neighborhood, and national community. We embrace the uniqueness and diversity that connect and make us valuable to our community. Our programs provide opportunities for students to value their communities, to serve as active members within their communities, and to practice the IB Attitudes, such as empathy, respect, appreciation, and commitment. We are committed to creating a diverse student body, racially and ethnically and in religious and socioeconomic status.
We believe our partnerships with students, parents, faculty and board members strengthen our mission and develop the whole child. In preserving the integrity of our value system, we strive to strengthen these partnerships by providing opportunities to develop the child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs.
