A Message from the Founding Principal

Message from the Founding Principal

The IB is an internationally recognized rigorous programme that promotes 21st century learning and prepares students for entry to the best universities around the world and equips them with both the academic skills and personal attributes for lifelong learning. The IB programme employs a holistic approach with a focus on the importance of mother tongue and language learning.

SLIS believes that the IB model is well matched to the needs of our school community and our mission recognizing both the importance of Chinese culture and language and international mindedness. With this in mind, the IB programme was carefully selected as being most appropriate to the needs of Chinese students holding foreign passports in the Longgang area of Shenzhen where SLIS is located.

SLIS is currently a PYP candidate school and is going through the process of IB PYP authorization during the academic year, 2019-20. As the school grows, SLIS will also seek authorization for the MYP and DP and, eventually, will be a fully authorized IB continuum school for students aged 6-18 years old.
