International School

Have you ever imagined an educational system that looked something like this: an advanced international educational outlook, combined with modern educational methods and all the best aspects of traditional Chinese culture, providing for the student an outstanding international education with Chinese characteristics? Or a system which doesn't revert to traditional spoon-feeding methods of instruction, instead implementing a unique system which integrates language, art and physical education? Or indeed, a system which takes a holistic approach to cultivating its students, with a joy-filled basic educational training and internationalized curriculum, allowing students to develop well rounded personalities in an international setting, experiencing the joys of study and the wonders of growing up.

For the next generation, such a form of education is no longer just a pipe-dream; it is waiting just around the corner.

Philosophy Goals

Environment and facilities

Our Chinese-Western educational synthesis has been developed to meet the needs of our student’s development of body and mind, embodying the principles of internationalized, multidisciplinary excellence.

Our brimming libraries and comfortable reading rooms engage students into broadening their knowledge and entering deeper into the palace of wisdom. Our multifunctional classrooms are well stocked with materials to allow them to be used for numerous subjects; in addition we have rooms dedicated to art, music, choir, dance, drama, photography, science and home economics, as well as specialized science labs for the study of biology, physics and chemistry.

This digital environment creates rich learning resources for both teacher and pupil, giving the opportunity to peruse the curriculums of hundreds of foreign universities, and to study content from untold thousands of educational sites, including those concerning art, language, history, information technology, neural sciences, literature and any other imaginable field of study. Teachers are able to use specialized platforms to publish lesson plans, multimedia resources, assignments, etc. Through these systems students and teachers are able to conveniently communicate, and progress of students can be checked at any time.

Faculty

PKU College’s excellent work environment, location, and professional development opportunities are combined with generous salaries packages to entice an outstanding pool of local and foreign teachers and managers. We welcome a mixture of all sorts of talent into our fold, including enthusiastic new graduates of quality universities, experienced teachers, as well as wizened retirees.

Our teachers are recruited directly by ourselves. Our foreign staff is primarily from the U.S., particularly from education and training recruitment bases in Massachusetts, New York, California, and elsewhere, where we find both new graduates and richly experienced teachers. While according with relevant local government regulations, the backbone of our staff is drawn from all over the country, undergoing our specialized PKU college training and work experience at the Beijing University Affiliated Experimental School Campus. Talent is also recruited from graduates of the finest universities around China.

In addition, we have recruited educational experts from Columbia University, and Peking University, as well as top-class Chinese and American school principals in order to develop our professional development systems and training programs. These programs touch on teaching theories and practices, communication skills, advanced implementation of teaching methods, and appropriate teacher behaviors. The training programs we have established are guaranteed to stay up to pace with the very forefront of educational research, meaning our quest for educational quality never is content to sit upon its laurels.

Throughout all of our campuses we maintain a maximum of 25 students per class. In elementary and middle schools, the teacher student ratio is kept under 1:9, while in senior school this is dropped to a ratio of 1:8. These low ratios ensure that each student receives the individual attention and instruction that she deserves.In addition, our campuses run numerous activities aimed at boosting the level of communication between local and foreign teachers. These activities are aimed at mutually sharing educational practices and knowledge, promoting cross-cultural understanding, and ultimately helping to realize our dream of a mixed Chinese-Western education.

These partnerships give much guidance and direction for the student’s selection of post graduation options.
