Welcome to the Primary School of Windhoek International School. We are proud to be the only school in Namibia authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. Through the philosophy of the PYP and our own mission and vision, our students develop a love for learning in a caring, encouraging environment.


Our integrated curriculum allows our students to make connections and to become independent learners who are responsible for their own learning. Our small class sizes and low teacher/student ratio enable us to give students individual attention.  


Our dedicated, international staff are lifelong learners themselves who pursue opportunities for professional growth to keep up with the best practices in education. As an inclusive school with fifty nationalities represented by the student body and twenty nationalities represented by the staff, students gain a broad perspective of the world.


Why should you send your child to WIS?  In addition to the above, the students learn to think and problem-solve for themselves, to ask questions, to develop self-management skills, and to reflect on their learning.  Our students are developing the “soft skills” needed in the world, such as communication, teamwork, and respect.

I look forward to welcoming you to Windhoek International School.
