As a parent, what are the major plus points for sending your child/children to this school?
The name appealed but has not lived up to expectations. There are better choices in Shanghai for a more affordable payment. This is the most expensive school in Shanghai but the education is comparable to cheaper schools.
In what areas do you feel the school needs improvement?
The leadership in particular the master is totally invisible. He considers parents a nuisance. The second master lacks experience in education and this clearly shows in her communications with parents.
What advice would you give to other parents thinking about sending their child/children to this school?
I would look carefully at other schools because Wellington does not offer anything exceptional or that is not available elsewhere in Shanghai.
I certify that this review is my own opinion based on my personal experience of this school. I understand that International Schools Advisor may remove this review if it is found to be in breach of the site's Terms & Conditions.
