Are you interested in reading about the numerous international schools in China?
Then you might want to check out the “International School!” website.
China is one of the countries where the economy is booming. As a result, the number of international schools there is also booming. Many teachers are finding themselves taking a chance on China and having a great time working at an international there. Many of the international schools there offer some excellent benefits, thus making the choice to live and work an easy one.
China has so much to offer too in terms of culture and travel. With an endless list of interesting places to visit, international schools teachers will never get bored when wanting to explore the country.
Some people think the language there (Mandarin Chinese) is too difficult to learn and acquire, but after working in China for two years myself, I met and worked with many expats there that had become very highly proficient.
The International School website has many different sections to it.
“Mr. Kai said that the nationalities of the students in his ACS schools are of more than 69 countries. Fitzmaurice from Nord Anglia said that all the children studying in the three schools in China received one lesson of Chinese mandarin once a week from the first beginning, so that when they leave they can reach the proficient level although they may not speak Chinese quite fluently…(more)”
“The international schools for foreigners’ children are set in the name of middle school, primary school or kindergarten. The courses offered, the teaching materials and the teaching plans are determined by the school itself. Generally, the system is the same as that in the founder’s motherland, or the popular IB system, and even the school can set its system by itself.
The NCCT in China provides the authentication service for the international schools. The international schools which are set for more than three years can apply for authentication voluntarily. And each time of authentication is valid for 5 years. The international schools receiving this authentication means that the graduation certificates conferred by the international schools are directly acknowledged by China’s official.
Western Academy of Beijing is the first one to get this authentication and this authentication system is first proposed by Western Academy of Beijing…(more).
There are also separate pages for the 3 different sections at international schools (Primary, Middle School, and Secondary). In each section, you can find the following information: the latest news from international schools in that section, highlighted articles, the latest news that is recommended to read, a list of recommended international schools, articles about the perspective of the students in that section, a FAQ section, a section about when there are Open Days at various international schools, etc.
