Living and working as an expatriate; often, very, far from home is a challenge. Finding a school that will help your child feel at home, enjoy and not dread school and prepare your child for their next school experience or acceptance and success in a great university is certainly part of that. As an established school with deep roots in the community and supported by an experienced and dedicated administrative and logistics team and operating from a fully resourced and well- maintained campus our efforts focus on the care and development of our students; believing the key factor in their education is passionate, knowledgeable and committed teachers.
Our school seeks to maintain academic rigor, a balanced liberal arts education, and holistic awareness and concern for the whole child within a loving and supportive environment that both values the individual, community, truth, beauty and right. A solid foundation of literacy and expanding awareness of the world and skills focused on supporting student’s curiosity, strengths and future prospects aims to develop competent and critical young adults ready to face the future with confidence. Finding adults who care for, believe in and inspire tomorrow’s generation and help them discover their talents and do their best despite setbacks and difficulties is the reason we exist as an institution.
Serving students from age 3 through grade 12 we offer a progressive and broad curriculum in English while seeking to develop a student’s fluency in Mandarin and appreciation for Chinese culture and customs. Our high school students have options to study AP courses, and we are an authorized exam center for both the College Board and A levels through EdExcel.To chart our student’s progress and improve our teaching we use regular MAP testing for grades 1-9. As a school we have adopted and adapt the U.S. Common Core to set standards for English, Math and literacy in science and social studies as a minimum for student progress. Beyond this we place great value in supporting our students to have guided and authentic experience in research, writing and thinking in offering innovative courses and methods in our secondary program.
We seek to accomplish this as expressed in our Core Mission Values:
Responsibility- train students to appreciate their place in the world and to show dedication, resourcefulness, and wise care for themselves and others.
Impact- inspire and develop young people ready to make a significant and lasting contribution in their families, jobs, community and beyond.
Servant leadership- to bravely face the challenges and problems of our times and seek to serve others with respect and compassion.
Excellence- support high standards of personal and academic integrity, fostering greatness and efforts to always improve as people and in terms of our knowledge and skills.
