Mission Statement

As a private English-medium school, Westcoast International Secondary School commits to provide a challenging, engaging and internationally-minded education in world-class facilities, to guide our students in becoming active citizens in a fast changing world.

 

Aims and ideals

As signified by our school logo, Ad Vitam Paramus, the school aims to prepare our students for life.

 

The current private English-medium secondary schooling options are limited on the island and there are none on the Western coast. As a result, many children travel for long hours to reach the current ones. Our founding aim was to address this schooling shortage.

 

 In doing so, we aim to found a school where teaching and learning are enjoyable, exciting and enriching to all. We want to create a secure environment where cultural diversity and religions, tolerance and discipline are part and parcel of a hands-on approach to education.

 

It is a fact that new generations of citizens need to be educated with the skills to solve global environmental problems we face. WISS aims to teach our students environmental and health values that will shape their personality for life. The school aims to provide opportunities to develop learners that are critical, open -minded, creative, self-confident, civic-conscious and scientifically inclined.

 

The school embodies a holistic approach to a child's learning and development in accordance with the most important recent research findings. A cornerstone of this philosophy is providing a child with the skills and tools for coping with life's many challenges in the 21st century. Thus, the school setting is an open, spacious and relaxed atmosphere where children are stretched mentally, socially and physically without losing discipline, respect and  care for themselves and others.
