Message from the Head of School

Thank you for all you have brought to our community this year. It has been a year like no other. I am grateful to be part of Woodside International School. A special thank you and farewell to our graduates and their families! I look forward to reconnecting with everybody next school year.
Virtual Graduation and Awards Ceremony – Monday, June 1st at 6:oo p.m.
All students, parents, guardians, family, and friends are invited to our Virtual Graduation and Awards Ceremony on Monday, June 1st at 6:00pm. We will also continue the WIS tradition of taking a few moments during the Graduation Ceremony to present Academic Honors and Special Awards to our distinguished students. During the current distance learning protocol caused by global health concerns, we are especially proud of students who have maintained high academic and community achievement.

You will receive a Zoom link by separate email. Now that our celebration will be online, we are delighted that students, families, and friends worldwide will be able to enjoy this special event for our graduating seniors and all of our students. Here is the
Awards Announcement for our 2020 Virtual Graduation and Awards Ceremony.
