SSIS offers a challenging curriculum to cultivate global citizens and life-long learners. Everyday our 1150+ students (from 50 different nationalities) are challenged to actively participating in their education. This produces students that consistently perform well above world averages, and is why SSIS is one of the best schools in China.

We educate students to become global citizens that value other cultures and are responsible, meaningful participants in the international community.

We offer a wide range of academic, cultural and recreational programs ensuring we deliver the highest quality international education possible.
