Aaron Wise

Principal of Beijing World Youth Academy

Beijing, China

Aaron is an international school principal who has led schools to see great success in Australia, Hong Kong, and Beijing. He also works as a consultant to principals and schools around the world and is co-author of the book “The Focused Principal”.

Aaron is a firm believer that a person’s character will determine their success above all else. Because of this, schools have a responsibility to promote not only academic success but also those things which genuinely matter for each student’s future. Aaron sees this character development as not only crucial for students on a personal level, but also for countries as a whole as they tackle national and global problems.

In his spare time, Aaron competes in Ironman triathlons and enjoys travelling the world to meet new people and experience different cultures.
