Washington International School offers Grades 7-12 American-styled curriculum. English is the common language of communication with instruction for all classes, except for Junior High school Chinese Literature, Math and science. WIST teachers write semester plans based on the U.S. Common Core State Standards. 

The high school program at WIST lays a good foundation for the College Board’s SAT and AP exams. WIST institutes mock TOEFL testing for all grade 9 and 10 students. The majority of the high school students in grade 11 or 12 take either  SAT or ACT along with either TOEFL or IELTS. Many students also take AP and subject-specific SAT exams. These consistent measures of achievement provide students with internationally recognized scores that are required for admissions to universities around the world.
