Core values

Core values are the key for WASS to create a qualified learning and teaching program, accompany students on their journey of finding knowledge and comprehensive development.
Academic Excellence
We provide an educational environment that promotes intellectual and personal growth through a comprehensive bilingual and international education, which fosters character development in our students and prepares them for university and long-life learning. We facilitate quality teaching and learning with our wide range of resources, to ensure that each member of the community reaches his or her peak in excellence.
International Mindedness
We value the world as the broadest context for learning, appreciating our own cultures and personal histories as well as respecting the values and traditions of others. We seek opportunities to inquire, act, reflect and grow from these experiences.
Effective Communicators
Effective communication involves both imparting and exchanging ideas in a clear and concise way to produce desired results. Our students are taught to be attentive listeners and active thinkers who offer ideas openly and weigh them against the thoughts and ideas of others.
Collaborative Community
We share the belief that to build a community, we need collaboration, trust, inclusiveness, courtesy, responsibility, and a shared framework of expectations. We promote meaningful inclusion and participation in a team-oriented, student-centered, and cooperative environment. We work together in genuine partnerships to find creative solutions to problems with the goal of achieving superior results.
Balance in Life
We understand the importance of a well-rounded education that incorporates academics, arts, athletics, and community service. We nurture physical, social-emotional, creative, and intellectual wellness that leads to healthy self-actualization in all our school activities.
Integrity and Compassion
We hold a steadfast commitment to deep respect, fairness, empathy, and truthfulness in our actions and communications. And we foster those traits in our students.
Fostering Leadership
We strive to inspire and develop students’ necessary leadership skills and with educational excellence and equity. We guide their work in purposeful, strategic, and resourceful ways, define broadly what is within their control to solve, learn and improve constantly. We operate with a sense of possibility, persevere in the face of challenges, ensure alignment between our actions and beliefs, and assume personal responsibility for results. People deserve enormous respect for what they give, for character, for values, for humility and compassion – this is Leadership.
