Welcome to ISB

ISB is an extraordinary school, made so by a tradition of educational excellence spanning more than 36 years. Establishing, nurturing, and growing such an exceptional learning community has been and remains intentional; the virtues of our school are our aspirational Mission, Vision, and Core Values. These are fulfilled by passionate, highly experienced, and qualified teachers and leaders, sharing a common commitment: We all want the very best for your child and for your family. 

ISB is dedicated to making sure we implement and sustain programs proven to be most effective for student learning and well-being. ISB is a progressive school, willing to respond to the changing needs of our students in tertiary education and the world which awaits them. A defining characteristic is our commitment to great teaching influenced by the latest research, and the flexibility to choose our learning standards from different educational systems around the world. Also of utmost importance is our strong sense of community and vibrant campus, where learning is engaging for all our students.  

ISB enjoys a proven track record of excellent learning outcomes, with students attending colleges around the world which are most appropriate for them. Our commitment to realizing students’ potential is built around nurturing the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of each child.

You have my open invitation to visit our school, in order to witness the transformational learning experiences taking place here every day. You will discover that our reputation as one of China’s top international schools is well deserved. Here, you will find a culturally diverse school, with around 1,700 students representing over 50 countries. Most importantly, you will observe first-hand a school that offers a balanced learning environment where our skilled and passionate teachers bring out the best in their students. Our website undoubtedly provides you with important information about ISB, and yet only through being here with us can you fully appreciate the school’s qualities. 

Communication and collaboration are skills instilled in our students throughout their education, with a significant proportion of their learning taking place outside the classroom, through engagement with the wider community. We engage each student in a variety of learning opportunities, enabling them to discover innate abilities, learn teamwork, exercise initiative and, ultimately, find a productive place within the ISB community and wider world. They deserve nothing less. 

Never before has the partnership between school and home been more important. ISB is more than a school; it’s a way of life. Our parents fulfill a vital role by living and modeling our Core Values, promoting school spirit, and welcoming new families. Our graduates will live and work in a rapidly changing world; we know that our programs equip them to be productive, healthy, and fulfilled young adults. 

Warm regards,
