Teacher Voices

Our dedicated educators love working at WAB.
WAB is one of the best international schools in Beijing and that includes it's athletics, as well!

I love watching the students develop as people - particularly the students who come to WAB with a few rough edges or a chip on the shoulder. The environment here is so positive and accepting that anyone and everyone somehow gets caught up in the general goodwill and comes out of their time at WAB more whole and healthy.

Brent Abrahams, Assistant High School Principal

Among all Beijing private schools, WAB students truly have a love of learning!
I enjoy working at WAB because I can see in our students' eyes their love for learning.
