WIS is currently offering academic programs that are closely paralleled to Northern American standard. Students must complete all compulsory courses and pass the exit examination in order to advance to the next level.

WIS offers Pre-K to Grade 12 curricula. The language of instruction is English for haft-day classes and English and Khmer for full-day classes.

  • First semester starts from 1 September to end of January.
  • Second Semester starts from 1 February to end of June.



WIS also offers summer programs. The program serves two purposes. The first purpose is to provide pre classes for promoted students in the new academic year. The second purpose is to provide failing students another chance. If they pass the subjects they failed at the end of year, they will  be promoted to the next grade in the new academic year.

Summer program starts in early July and finishes in late August. 


The school also offers international programs to be conducted in other countries by cooperating with international partners like CCI in the USA. About 15 students go to the USA every year.
