Established in 2012, The International School of Dongguan (ISD) is a coeducational day school located in Dongguan, the People's Republic of China (PRC). Dongguan is situated in southern Guangdong Province in between Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
ISD is a 12,000 square meter educational facility atop 30,000 square meters or almost 8.5 acres. The campus houses 50 classrooms within four floors. The 5th floor has an additional 6 classrooms and a conference room. ISD also boasts an 800 square meter indoor basketball court fully equipped with shower and changing rooms. The cafeteria can currently seat 120 students and has the capacity to expand to seat 300 students. The campus has facilities for the arts, sciences, sports and technology. The art facilities house a modern Black Box Theatre, music rooms, art gallery, pottery kiln, screen and printing press, photography studio library and multimedia center. Our science labs are modern and our sports facilities are varied and state-of-the art, including the recent completion of an artificial turf sports field that accommodates two football pitches and a baseball diamond. Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, ISD became a full fledged Baseball Sports Academy. ISD also has two outdoor basketball courts, two tennis courts, a full-size gymnasium and playgrounds. Our new Makerspace technology department classroom comes equipped with robotics and state of the art digital equipment such as a Laser Cutter and 3D printer.
At ISD the professional life of the teachers is enhanced by the excellent new facility and by organizing teaching groups in educationally manageable sizes. We believe the availability of quality resources to support the program of studies and a meaningful supervisory experience with opportunities for professional development is important. The Governing Authority of the school is led by returned Chinese who are the owners of the school. The school is contracted with International School Services (ISS) for management services through their Asia-Pacific office in Shekou.
The International School of Dongguan (ISD) is fully accredited from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). ISD is also a fully authorized school to deliver the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) for students in grades eleven and twelve. Our school is also approved by the National Council of Curriculum and Textbook Development (NCCT) and, as such, endorsed by the Chinese Government.
ISD is also a proud member of two regional professional organizations for international schools: Association of Chinese and Mongolian International Schools (ACAMIS) and East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS).
