School Ethos/Vision: This is an international school based on the campus of a prestigious Beijing university and is a grade 1-12 school providing a unique educational experience for the approximately 423 members of the student body. The school utilises a progressive/inquiry based, North American approach to instruction coupled with a decidedly Eastern influence. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is committed to nurturing and challenging students to prepare them to contribute to an increasingly globalised world. This school is expanding next year hence already having vacancies available.

Location Overview: Beijing is a bustling city with more than 13 million people on an area of 16,800 sq. km - the size of Belgium. The Beijing Municipality is flat and has a very orderly design - north, south, east and west circumnavigated by six concentric ring roads. The Beijing seasons are clearly marked by changes in weather and temperatures, and surprising splashes of colours. Beijing today is a city of vast contrasts - the new intermingles with the old, and the whole city is developing rapidly. Being a proud member of the WTO and successful host for the 29th Olympics Games, Beijing has set an even greater pace of development and change. Beijing is also home to a sizeable expatriate population comprising members from the business community, NGOs, embassies and foreign students.
