-Director Claire Berger

QSI International School of Shenzhen, established in 2001, is a non-profit, co-educational day school for students from 2 years of age through Secondary graduation.  Our goal is for students to be accepted into international English-speaking universities around the world where students are prepared to begin the next step of their educational careers.  The school serves expatriate families living in Shenzhen and the surrounding areas and is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges from the United States of America.

Our caring faculty is recruited from native-English speaking countries and hold certifications in their core content areas. We offer a combination of high academic rigor coupled with a performance-based, Mastery Learning approach. This ensures that students receive the attention and personalized needed to achieve success at all levels.

As we focus on the whole child, we also introduce and teach Success Orientations (SOs) throughout the classroom and school.  SOs include Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Aesthetic Appreciation, Concern for Others, Kindness and Politeness, Independent Endeavor and Group Interaction.  This character education helps prepare our children to be good global citizens in addition to achieving strong academic success.

Students engage in an academic schedule of core classes including Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Cultural Studies and Science. We also offer a full range of specialist courses and electives, including Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer Technology, and many Foreign Languages. In addition to our in-school activities and opportunities, we offer after school activities and sports programs.  Our Secondary students have access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, which provides a challenging course of study leading to graduation and specific diplomas. Our graduates continue on to universities around the world.

We hope you take the time to learn more about our school and organization.  We believe that our unique program offers your child an unparalleled opportunity, and we look forward to your joining the QSI family.
