Whole Child Education

Our vision is to be a world-class learning community that integrates the best of international and Chinese education to maximize each scholar’s potential in life.

 

Our mission is to build a future-oriented school, focused on empowering scholars to thrive in a rapidly changing economic and social environment. We will educate them to become competent for the work that is yet to be created, to apply the technology that is yet to be invented and to solve the social problems that we cannot imagine today.
