Hello and welcome to Shekou International School (SIS) for the school year 2018-2019.
This year we celebrate 30 years of providing expatriate students with the highest standard of education within a truly international experience. Our staff and students come from more than 40 nations to live here in Shekou. This is an unique location where the innovation and vibrancy of China is most active, and our school is proud to have been a part of this region for so long.
Our mission is to provide students a rigorous education and to do so in a caring and nurturing community. We strive to inspire each student to become a principled, innovative contributor in an ever-changing and transforming world. Our students are our best representatives as they enter great universities and achieve success in a wide array of contexts.
Student-centred approaches are at the heart of how our teachers work with each student --from early childhood to graduation. Our strong academic achievements are built through hands-on learning and deep understanding. Our curriculum is developed from the best and most current of national and international curricula, making it relevant and challenging for our students.
Our students can take full advantage of the best educational technology in all grades. Beyond the classroom, SIS students can participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities which contribute significantly to their physical and social development.
You'll find many stories on this site about our school, our community and most importantly our students. And you will find many more inspiring and exciting stories and people if you can visit our school in person.
