Our school is built upon decades of experience of offering quality international education in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Founded in Hong Kong, we have set up an International School in Chonqing for overseas and non-Chinese citizens.
We operate formal international education schools of Higher Education, Matriculation, Secondary, Primary and Early Childhood. In face of the challenges of the new century's education and lifestyles, we're committed to promoting the internationalization of China's education.
We focus on whole person education which allows students to develop their potential to the fullest, embrace their self-identity and establish harmonious relationship with the world. We believe in the function of education is to enhance human qualities in an all-round way, instead of mere transmission of knowledge and skills. Education should be able to bring about comprehensive development of a person's spiritual and physical aspects and one's value system, and to lay a solid foundation for life-long learning so as to respond to challenges in the global environment in the 21st Century.
