We believe the primary purpose of Xiwai International Middle School is to provide an education program, which will challenge each child to develop their intellect to its capacity.

Each individual accepted into this program is provided with opportunities and learning experiences appropriate to his individual ability level, learning rate and style, in a stimulating environment. These experiences should allow each student to develop their skills in creative thinking, logical reasoning, problem solving, dealing with abstract concepts and practical application of knowledge.

It is essential that the inherent desire to learn be nurtured so that each student will develop a desire for learning, which will be maintained throughout his lifetime.

Underlying all educational endeavors must be the development in each child of a feeling of self-worth and self-respect along with the acquisition of pride in work and the development of good character.
