A culture of East-West synthesis
The School is committed to nurturing high-quality world citizens with an international outlook and excellent academic performance, guided by principles in teaching and learning, and fully respecting the physical and cognitive development of students. The School is dedicated to creating and implementing a future-proof innovative education system that melds the best of the Chinese national education system with educational systems worldwide. Taking this approach would allow our students to incorporate the values of local Chinese communities as they gear up for a new era of globalization in the future.
The School firmly believes in creating an environment conducive for students to maximize their potential and achieve success. Centered on the three pillars of breadth in knowledge, physical and mental wellness, and realizing potential, the School strives to promote experiential-based learning and project-based learning holistically, instilling in our children, the educational ideal of taking ownership in participation and practice. It is in this light that the School implements a “house system” from grade Three and above to put in place a community management structure. It is hoped that through involvement, students will learn to cooperate, and from practicing, students will become more inventive. We like our children to be independent while sociable. The School also caters to the personal development needs of students by curating a diverse array of co-curricular activities, experiential outdoor activities, and learning projects to promote student wellbeing, and encourage students to undertake the role of mini teachers themselves in the learning journey. All of the above are designed to bolster healthy interaction among individuals, student groups, and the community as a whole.
High-quality education program
The School aims to offer a high-quality education curriculum in eight areas: language and literature, mathematics, humanities and social studies, science, technical study, arts, physical education and health, and practice-integrated study. The curriculum design demonstrates the synthesis of the Chinese national curriculum and international curricula to cover both breadth and depth. On a compliance basis with the Chinese education system and regulations, the School will simultaneously drive both learning systems to equip students in all areas of content knowledge, skills, and behavioral performance, and to build their capacity in recognition-memorization, comprehension, application, analysis, critique, and creativity. To that purpose, a variety of pedagogical strategies and models will be used to help students learn and advance.
Unique multilingual electives
The aims that underpin the School’s establishment are to foster international understanding, stimulate multilingualism, shape shared community awareness, and advance global thinking. The School would inculcate global awareness, multiculturalism, peace, environmental, and sustainability education to foster global understanding. In terms of multilingualism, the School leverages Beijing Foreign Studies University’s expertise to offer, in addition to English, elective language classes in German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Russian, and Korean, alongside our advocation of East-West synthesis. This line of thought complements the goal of providing children of foreign personnel residing in Beijing with a comprehensive and high-quality education in the Chinese language and culture, raising their proficiency in the language and deepening their knowledge of the culture. The School is committed to enhancing the students" understanding of multiculturalism through an integrated international curriculum.
Curriculum and performance evaluation
The School employs a robust quality evaluation system to assess our cross-disciplinary program. As part of the assessment, the pedagogical settings, the teaching process, and the effectiveness of the teaching process will be analyzed against the talent training objectives set out in the provision of schools for the children of foreign personnel. School inspectors, educational experts, peers, students, and parents will participate in the evaluation process, which will look at learning effectiveness, incremental learning, and the effective use of teaching resources. New educational assessment tools will be introduced from time to time to aid in drawing timely conclusions about the results of, and learning from, educational and pedagogical reforms. In the meantime, the School will continue to strengthen its communication with similar schools in Beijing, as well as conventional primary and secondary schools to promote exchanges on educational concepts and instructional methods.
School management and teaching staff
The School is managed by a School Council and the principal is held accountable for its day-to-day operation. Lin Weimin, a leading national education inspector and expert in national foundational education, has been appointed the council’s Chairman and Principal. The School boasts a talented group of teachers, some of whom hold doctoral or master"s degrees, or are trained overseas. Special-grade teachers in Beijing, district-level subject leaders, and backbone teachers are also found among our team of faculty. As well, the school engages foreign teaching teams all year round from countries such as the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, and others to teach small classes as is popular in the foreign educational systems. This is part of our effort to modernize the school system in our quest to become a top choice for children of foreign personnel in China.”
