Situated in downtown Honglingjin Park, Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing) provides international education to expatriate children aged 2 â€“ 18. Recognised as one of the top international schools in Beijing for over 20 years, the Yew Chung International School of Beijingâ€™s international curriculum fromÂ kindergarten through Primary and Secondary School (IGCSE & IB) prepares students to become bilingually competent in English and Chinese and globally-minded for a competitive future. The Yew Chung International School of Beijing experience begins in our Early Childhood Education Programme, where we provide a nurturing environment for children of nursery and preschool age. Children are at the heart of the early childhood programme, experiencing the joy of learning through a holistic and play-based learning process that encourages discovery. Each class is co-taught with one native Chinese- and English-speaking teacher in each classroom, ensuring students thrive in a wholly bilingual learning environment. Students transitioning to Yew Chung International School of Beijingâ€™s Primary School will find a place of energy and life, where there is evident enjoyment displayed by the students towards learning and where there are a wealth of opportunities made available to the students for their learning. Our Yew Chung International School curriculum provides an academically strong, international, and bilingual education, emphasizing cross-cultural experiences combined with anÂ additional focus on Chinese culture and extensive music, arts, and sports activities; students in Years 1-3 attend violin classes multiple times a week, both instilling a love of music and increasing overall brain function in these formative years. Similar to our Early Childhood Education section, each Yew Chung International School of Beijing Primary School classroom features one English- and one Chinese-speaking teacher to provide true bilingual immersion. Overlaying this emphasis on all-rounded education is our Character Education Programme, dedicated to helping students to develop a moral compass. We encourage our students to become global citizens of character and integrity who will make a positive difference in our ever-shrinking world. Our burgeoning global citizens entering Yew Chung International School of Beijing Secondary School arrive into a truly international, multicultural, and bilingual learning environment that wholly incorporates both Eastern and Western cultures. Linguistic skills in both English and Chinese are equally sharpened,Â and students develop a deep understanding of and respect for cultural diversity and global awareness. Curriculum in Years 7-9 is once again based on the National Curriculum for England, with students in Years 10-11 transitioning to IGCSE programme which in turn prepares them for the academically rigorous and internationally recognized IB Diploma Programme in Years 12-13. Beyond academics, the Yew Chung International School of Beijing Secondary School encompasses competencies and co-curricular activities that provide numerous enrichment opportunities that go beyond the classroom to inspire critical thinking and development of a strong moral character through a variety of activities, including the YCIS Seeds of Hope charity, communication and technology programmes, World Classroom trips, research and problem solving clubs, sport and athletic competitions, Experiencing China excursions, applied arts exhibitions, music and drama performances, and much more.
