About our School

Our School is one and only International School in the Hunan province.
We focus on scholastic development, personal growth, and ethical enrichment.

Changsha WES Academy(CWA) is the first and only international school in Hunan Province that uses English as the primary language of instruction.

Changsha is a bustling, internationally expanding market that provides foreign companies with investment opportunities. CWA was established in order to support this growth by attracting moreforeign investors to Changsha City and Hunan Province atlarge. With the support of theleaders of Changsha City, the Changsha National Economic and Technical Development Zone Administrative Committee (CETZAC) cooperated with Worldwide Education Services, Singapore (WES Group) to establish an international school for the children of expatriate and SAR families.

At Changsha WES Academy(CWA), we aim to create a vibrant school community that will bring out the best in every child. We invite you and your child to visit our campus to meet our community of internationally minded, lifelong learners, and experience the warm, supportive environment that will help your child develop a love of learning.

Currently, we offer an international curriculum for children from ages 3 to 19.

We have been approved as an lnternational School by the PRC Ministry of Education and we are an accredited member of the Council of International Schools(CIS). ln May 2014, the International Baccalaureate Organization authorized us as a Primary Years Programme, International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. All IB World Schools share a common philosophy of a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education which we believe is important for our students.

Our Teachers
CWA brings together leading teachers from around the world with international backgrounds who are all highly qualified and very experience. This mix of teachers from America, Australia, Canada, China, England, Europe, etc., allows us to draw from global best practice to ensure a holistic, effective approach to teaching and learning. Our students are well supported by our experienced teachers as they transition into an English learning environment.

Our Students
CWA is not just a place to learn but also to a place to grow and play. With more than 20 nationalities represented, students from different countries and cultures meet and mix, creating a sense of identity and belonging. Being a caring school allows us to address individual needs and foster a love of learning. Our goal is to help students take responsibility for their own learning, and equip them with the attitudes, attributes and skills required to excel in whatever learning environment awaits them upon leaving CWA.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the MiddleYears Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), and the Career-related Programme(CP). For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org.

Changsha WES Academy is a school offering a stimulating curriculum and a supportive environment to ensure our students experience success every day. We focus on scholastic development, personal growth, and ethical enrichment. The result: students who are independent and confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic, responsible and compassionate.

We believe the elementary school years are the most formative of a child’s life. These early years can breed intellectual apathy or curiosity to seek knowledge.

A time marked by creative, social, and emotional development, and characterized by a lifelong love of learning and the joys of new, diverse friendships.

Changsha WES Academy was founded in February 2011 to provide students with excellent academic programs and a nurturing environment with close student-teacher relationships. Changsha WES Academy prepares students for success both personally and academically.
