The World Leading Schools Association (WLSA) is a network of top leading high schools, offering a platform for worldwide collaboration. WLSA’s mission is to lead educational change in the secondary school sector in the 21st century. WLSA was founded in 2011, composed of Eton College, Groton School, Geelong Grammar School, Harvard-Westlake School, Beijing No.4 High School, and the High School Affiliated to Fudan University (FDFZ). WLSA is governed by an Executive Board, including the Heads of Groton School and the Webb Schools in the USA, Beijing No. 4 High School, the High School Affiliated to Fudan University (FDFZ) in China, and is currently chaired by Ms. Eve Jardine-Young, Principal of Cheltenham Ladies’ College in the UK. WLSA brings together students and educators for cross-cultural dialogue, curriculum development, and resource sharing. A strong bond of this association of leading schools worldwide is a unique feature of WLSA.
