SWIS is a CIS and WASC accredited school!

Dear SWIS Community Members,

I hope you all have a restful holiday.

It is my great pleasure to announce that SWIS is now a CIS and WASC Accredited School. SWIS is also the only school in Shenzhen that obtains both accreditations.

Accreditations demonstrate our commitment to high quality international education and ensures our school is continually improving and keeping up with the best international education standards. It will greatly raise SWIS's profile among the school community, prospective families, educational leaders and teachers as well as universities.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to extend my warm congratulations to the SWIS community on this major milestone for SWIS.

I want to express my sincere thank you to all of the SWIS community members for the work that has been done for the accreditation process.

My sincere thanks goes out to all self-study committees: the Section Leaders, committee members, and the ICT team for completing the self-study report. The amount of work you have done with perseverance is remarkable.

Special thanks to the School Director Ms. Ally Wu and the Senior Leadership Team. Under their leadership, SWIS has been on the right track to achieving all ambitious goals set for it.

A big thank you to the Deputy Director of Academics/Secondary Principal Mr. Daniel Legault for leading the accreditation process firmly on the path to success with great initiative, experience and organization.

Let's celebrate this wonderful milestone in SWIS' development.

Sincerely,
Guoxiang Gong
Board Director

尊敬的SWIS社区成员:
大家好!首先祝大家假期愉快!我很高兴向大家宣布一个好消息:我们接到通知,SWIS已经正式获得CIS和WASC认证,成为深圳唯一1所同时获得这两个机构认证的学校。
我们都知道,CIS是国际上最有影响力、最具权威性的对国际学校办学水平及质量进行认证的第三方机构。国内目前只有28所CIS 认证学校,在深圳包括SWIS在内只有2所。WASC则是美国教育部授权的为学校、学院和大学认证的六大教育联盟之一,在亚太地区国际学校认证领域具有较高影响力,目前在深圳包括SWIS在内也只有4所WASC认证学校。
通过CIS和WASC严格的认证,是对SWIS办学水准和高质量教育的肯定和证明,是SWIS创办以来一个突破性的、里程碑式的发展成绩。
在此我代表理事会,对在邬晓莉校长及其管理团队领导下,SWIS所取得的优秀成绩表示热烈的祝贺!SWIS在短短5年多里实现了3个IB授权、2个国际认证,这当中每一次跨越发展,都离不开邬校长及其管理团队的正确领导。
我还要代表理事会特别感谢教学副校长/中学部校长Mr. Daniel Legault,自2015年初启动认证申请以来,Daniel校长积极承担了统筹、组织和协调CIS和WASC的认证工作,他凭借专业经验和敬业精神,带领我校团队如期完成了认证。
经历过认证,才了解这一过程的艰难复杂。非常感激花了一年多时间积极开展自我学习的各小组及其组长,正是由于大家的通力配合,才完成了自我学习报告这一浩大的工程。SWIS也在自我学习过程中反思了自身的目标、优势和劣势,思考学校如何办得更好并着手一一改进。
最后要感谢全校老师和学校各个部门的积极配合和辛勤付出。开展认证工作两年多以来,从多次全校大会到一次次学习小组会议,从初步考察、预评估考察、完成自我学习报告,到最后为期一周的认证评估,每一步你们都做了大量的工作。感谢你们的付出!
CIS和WASC认证将在学校声誉、毕业生申请大学、教师招聘、招生、教师职业发展等方面使SWIS全面受益。认证也是一个新起点,要求我们未来以更高标准实现学校的办学宗旨和目标。
再次感谢大家!让我们再接再厉,携手共创SWIS更加辉煌美好的明天!
此致
敬礼!

龚国祥 理事长
