Word from our Chairman

"The World Leading Schools Association was established in 2011 in New York City. Throughout the years leading up to 2011, school heads from around the world discussed ways to develop enhanced understanding and cooperation between their students, educators and administrators. From these discussions grew the desire to create a formal network of leading schools, part of them from China with membership extending over time to include schools from all around the world.

WLSA recognises and celebrates the cultural and educational differences between schools and also seeks to build a network on the principles of diversity, transformative education and inclusion. WLSA schools encourage young people to be purposeful individuals and effective global citizens. Through their shared work and the collaboration of educators and students across the globe, leading schools can help show the way to a more fruitful and engaged relationship through cultural understanding and leadership roles."
