When I first came to Shenzhen in 2011 the popular slogan caught my attention: "You are a Shenzhener as soon as you get here". Frankly, as much as I wanted to make this new place my home, for years I still felt like an outsider. I had a family, friends, and acquaintances, but no sense of belonging.
A Message from the School Director
Welcome to Shenwai Longgang International School (SLIS)
Shenwai Longgang International School (SLIS) has been initially invested in, and established by the Shenzhen Municipal Government, and is managed by Shenzhen Foreign Languages School. The target audience for students includes expatriate children, and children with permanent residence of foreign countries as well as residents Hong Kong, Macau or Taiwan. We intends to provide good quality education that integrates both Chinese and western culture.
We are committed to developing students who have a clear sense of moral purpose. At SLIS we are nurturing leaders in technology who are global networkers, with a strong grounding in Chinese culture. As such we have exercised global recruitment for experienced Chinese and expatriate teachers. We will deliver the rigour and rounded values of the International Baccalaureate programme and integrate with traditional Chinese culture and language studies. We always endeavour to enrich our curriculum by equipping students with essential skills in languages, arts, sports, humanity and science.
SLIS welcomes you. Please witness the process that we create a platform for good quality international education, while we strive to foster our students into inheritors of Chinese culture and lifelong learners with global mindedness.
