The mission of BASIS International Schools China is to provide our students with a transformative early childhood and K – 12 education. With the cutting-edge BASIS Curriculum, through exceptional teaching and faculty mentoring, we will produce graduates who have the broad intellectual and international perspectives, critical thinking capabilities and creative problem-solving skills to be leaders in their future world.
A great international school in contemporary China must fulfill two important promises to our families: we must connect our students to educational and professional opportunities across the globe, and at the same time ensure that our students are deeply rooted in the language and culture of this nation's uniquely rich, vibrant and ancient civilization.
As a learning community we are driven by our deep commitment to fulfilling our mission through fostering a teacher-led culture of professional excellence. Decades after our students graduate, it will be the close, life-shaping relationships with their favorite teachers that they will remember. We would not have it any other way and thus we understand that our success is due entirely to our ability to attract and retain a world-class faculty.
We offer our students the experience of an academically elite American independent school: the Liberal Arts education in our classrooms is complemented by a rich co-curriculum of organizations in which our students discover and develop life-enhancing interests and skills. We prepare our students to be full participants in the 21st century world of commerce and innovation. And the BASIS Curriculum we employ challenges our students with the highest expectations and our teachers match that challenge with the highest levels of support.
