    Rebecca Wood

    Dr. Wood began her 21-year tenure at Fairmont teaching middle and high school English. She also served as English Department Chair before assuming the post of Dean of Advanced Studies at the Prep. Dr. Wood has a deep commitment to International Baccalaureate. She taught IB at the Prep and served as the IB Coordinator for many years. She has also helped coordinate and lead IB training for Fairmont International School (FIS) teachers in Beijing and Taipei.

    International Baccalaureate World School

    The IB Programme has received attention around the world for making a positive impact on students, schools, and their wider communities, with learning going well beyond the classroom.  IB courses emphasize deep disciplinary knowledge, critical thinking, and international mindedness, and are based in application and projects, rather than memorization. The Programme prepares students to achieve their academic potential and lead a life of prosperous world citizenship.
