WAIS Sophomore Students Present Personal Projects

Twenty sophomores at Westchester Academy for International Studies (WAIS) presented personal projects in learning recently ranging from a fundraiser for youth autism to a video project showing how one student taught herself Korean. Soon, many more WAIS students will be presenting projects as part of this school's expanding International Baccalaureate program.

Tenth-graders at WAIS pursued these special projects even though they earned no final grades for their work. In future years, students at this district charter middle and high school will select personal projects like these as graded independent study works under the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP).

 WAIS has applied for official recognition as an IB Middle Years Programme school. This fall, an international accreditation board will visit Westchester Academy and review work done by WAIS teachers and administrators to meet this lofty goal. Only a few schools in the Houston region offer the middle and high school IB programs in a combined campus setting.
