On Thursday, December 2, we had some special guests who traveled from the U.S. to visit our school and learn more about the Wells International School philosophy, as well as the various organizations and initiatives under Everclever Co., Ltd., owned and founded by Chairman, Dr. Chang Yao-Lang. Among our guests were: Mr. Andrew Kim, Dr. Henry Tsai, Dr. Chris Ching, Mr. John C. Goodson, and Mr. Michael Lamoureuy.
Our Head of School, Mr. Ray de la Peña, first presented an overview of the Wells philosophy, education systems and major academic and extracurricular achievements over the years. Wells aims to provide an affordable and quality international education, as well as a diverse range of personalized academic, athletic and extracurricular opportunities for students to develop and thrive based on their unique strengths and talents. To name a few, these opportunities include our Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, elite athlete programs, community service, and University of Hawaii Summer Science Camp.
Following the first presentation, Ms. Tina Yang, Chief Operating Officer of European International University (EIU), shared about EIU’s mission to provide affordable and quality higher education to a diverse group of international students across the globe. She also discussed EIU’s accomplishments at present and their vision for the future to integrate more blockchain technology and AI into their learning systems. Finally, Mr. Osris Lee, Special Assistant to the Chairman, presented a new concept, ‘Wellsverse’, an initiative to utilize technology and create interactive learning and engaging educational experiences for students.
After the presentations, the guests were given a tour of our Wells On Nut Campus for the guests to see our facilities and school environment which support the learning and extracurricular activities which happen within the primary, middle and high school.
Overall, our guests were very impressed learning about Wells’ accomplishments and future plans for continued growth and improvement of quality educational experiences. Wells is happy to collaborate with international partners and would like to extend a sincere thank you to our guests for taking the time to visit our community and learn more about our ethos.
