Wancho script is an alphabet created between 2001 and 2012 by middle school teacher Banwang Losu in Longding district, Arunachal Pradesh for writing the Wancho language.[1] Letters represent consonants and vowels. Conjunct consonants are not used. Tone is indicated with diacritical marks on vowel letters.[1]

While Wancho script is taught in some schools, the Wancho language is generally written in either Devanagari script or the Latin alphabet.
