Congratulations Class of 2010!

When I first stepped foot upon our signature artificial turf courtyard at Wells Thong Lor nearly five years ago, the thought of seeing Alice, Kieren, Ritika, or Kamon – the remaining four of nine original members of Wells charter class of 2010 – proudly walking across a stage to receive their high school diplomas hadn’t even crossed my mind. It seems like only yesterday that Dr. Marilyn George, the Executive Director of the WASC Accrediting Commission of Schools, first paid us a visit. Against the backdrop of Wells’ yellow walls, Dr. Marilyn had set us on the path toward establishing ourselves as a world-class, international institution.

That was way back in the fall of 2005.

Since then, we have gone through the WASC Initial Visit, have been granted Candidacy for Accreditation, have submitted ourselves to a rigorous Self-Study Process and, finally, experienced the WASC Full Accreditation Visit to get to where we are right now – as a fully accredited educational institution adhering to, and in many cases exceeding, international standards of quality and excellence.

I am proud to say that the majority of our graduates have already made solid plans to continue their education in fields ranging from International Business to Dentistry, Advertising & Design to Ag-Economics. In fact, our graduates were accepted into universities across the globe, including:

The prospects are looking even better for our future graduates, as we already are preparing application packages for several students for early decisions to some of the top schools in the United States, including Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Northwestern, and even MIT.

So, to our graduating seniors … As you gaze toward new horizons, you will undoubtedly wonder, perhaps nervously, what your future holds for you. However, we hope you will be able to take the time to stop and take a look proudly back at your alma mater, reflecting on the myriad of invaluable lessons and experiences that your Wells education had provided you. Rest assured that in the coming years, no matter how many new floors we add, no matter how many new buildings we construct, and no matter how many new, innovative programs we launch, you will always be welcome here – as the first graduating class of this school. You, and only you, are now and forever will be the original Wells International School Seahawks.
