Changsha WES Academy China
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 7 (age 13) and will start a Grade 8 class in August 2014. As the international community in the Changsha area grows, CWA intends to expand upwards and eventually offer classes up 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.
