Congratulations! The Bilingual Section, namely Changsha WES (Bilingual) Academy, has officially become a candidate school of IB PYP.

获得IB PYP候选资格,既是长沙县玮思学校前进路上的又一里程碑,展现出我们在教学层面不断追求卓越的精神,也是一个新的起点,标志着玮思正式进入候选学校运营阶段。

To achieve candidate status is another major achievement for our school and shows our ongoing commitment to realizing teaching and learning excellence. This also marks a new starting point for the Bilingual Section as we formally enter the candidate phase of PYP.


What is IBO 认识IBO

国际文凭组织(简称IBO)创立于1968年,是一个经联合国科教文卫组织注册的非赢利的国际教育基金会,是世界公认的国际教育的领跑者。IBO的教育宗旨是终身教育,倡导国际主义和对不同文化的理解与尊重。

The International Baccalaureate Organization is a non-profit educational organization that was established in 1968. The IBO aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.


What is PYP 认识PYP

IB PYP课程项目针对3-12岁学生,以探究式学习为特色,通过六大超学科主题,为学生提供探索未知世界的框架。在跨越学科的探索过程中,学生会理解一些重要的概念,获得基本的知识和技能,树立良好的学习态度,并且学会承担社会责任。

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. Through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, the PYP challenges students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts.


Bilingual Section 中西融合 双语特色

2015年,我们建立了长沙县玮思学校,面向中国籍学生,开设从小学到初中的中西融合课程,以对接国际高中。我们在坚持国家义务制教育课程体系的内容及要求的基础上,融入IB的教学理念和框架体系,辅以丰富多彩的特色课程和活动,采用小班制和双语教学,通过探究的方式引导学生成为学习的主体,真正做到以学习者为中心。

The Bilingual Section was set up in 2015 to enroll local Chinese students. It prepares our primary and middle years students for entering the international high school programme. This is done by conducting the compulsory national curriculum within the structure of the IB philosophy. It integrates the international methodology and framework of IB, and offers various featured courses and activities to encourage independent learning. It features small class sizes and bilingual teaching through inquiry-centered learning activities.


Our Strengths 对比传统 优势在握

长沙县玮思学校作为湖南省唯一一所纯正的双语学校,同传统学校相比有几大明显优势:更国际化的课程和教学体系,更充足的校内教学时间,更落到实处的双语教学,更人性化的小班教学,更有助于学生全面发展的探究式教学,更多样化的课外项目与活动。

As the only real bilingual school in Hunan, the Bilingual Section represents several advantages over a traditional school: we implement international course and teaching methodology, we have a comprehensive school schedule, we ensure bilingual education, we use small class-size, we conduct inquiry-based teaching and learning, we value ability training rather than rote memorization.


IB Philosohpy IB理念 坚定践行

IB认证不是一蹴而就的,候选学校必须进行至少两年的完整运营之后,方可申请正式授权。在候选阶段,玮思小学部的所有老师有权使用IB课程教学资源,并得到IBO对学校持续有力的支持,我们相信,这将为我们的学生们带来更先进的学习资源,创造更丰富的学习体验。

According to IBO, candidate schools must spend at least two years toward full implementation before applying for authorization. Throughout the candidacy period, all teachers in the bilingual PYP division can gain access to the IB programme resources and teaching materials. The IB will also provide us with continued support. We believe this will allow us to create a richer learning experience for our students.

我们将在积极探索中西融合特色教育的同时,全力贯彻IB教育理念,为获取IB PYP的正式认证作出不懈努力。

In the process of pursuing authorization as an IB World School, we will keep working on the integration of the national curriculum and the IB philosophy.
