A WAB education extends far beyond classroom walls. Our students are challenged to be global citizens and live meaningful, engaged lives that make a difference. Whether it is during a Roots and Shoots activity, out and about in the neighborhood, a lunchtime meeting, a Chorus rehearsal, or an after-school athletics practice, you’ll find a community of engaged and active learners thriving at the Western Academy of Beijing.
