Shenwai Longgang International School
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 permanent site for the school is located in Bantian Town of Longgang District, with a gross area of 51,000 square metres. The construction work is expected to start this year, and end in 2019. The architectural design was provided by a renowned international architecture firm. The school will have an exquisite natural ambience. It is close to the mountains and next to a river.
The target audience for students include expatriate children, children with permanent residence of foreign countries, and children who are permanent residents from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. The curriculum will cover primary, and secondary school level, with a projected overall size of 48 classes and 20 students per class. The school plans to work in partnership with International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) and offer the IB programme which is recognised worldwide. This is intended to meet the dynamic needs of SLIS students for their learning and further studies in the future. Meanwhile, the school will also be providing courses related to Chinese language and traditional culture, and gradually create its own unique course structure.
The transitional campus of Shenwai Longgang International School is located at Block C2 of Shenzhen High School of Science. The school commenced operations on 1 September 2017, and currently offers courses for grade 1 through grade 4. For this academic year, there are about 30 students at school.

Shenwai Longgang International School is committed to the rigour and the rounded values of the International Baccalaureate programme, 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.
Learning without boundaries
Pursuit of technological innovation
Understanding of cultural inheritance
Grounded moral awareness with humility
Learning Without Walls
We intend to create a learning environment that is supported by mobile and embedded computers and wireless networks in our everyday lives. We envisage by combining the use of technology and student learning in the family and within the community, we will make important and pertinent links between an international outlook and Chinese traditional culture.
Studying with (high) technology
We will encourage our students to make full use of technology. Bantian region is considered as an important region in the technology industry in Shenzhen, which has attracted dozens of well-known enterprises, such as Huawei, Huntkey, Xintianxia, KTC, etc. We also intend to introduce interactive learning models by applying artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
Through our schools intended involvement with the international school community, we will create a conducive network for international partnership, and develop our students as international leaders and networkers.
We will make moral education a key focus. We recognize the fact that the essence of Chinese history and culture is closely related to moral education, which shares the core values of IB philosophy. As such, we will put a strong focus on our students’ morality, and we will look to equip our students with a sound personality.
The integration of western and Chinese values and culture.
SLIS will make the best use of traditional Chinese education, alongside IB philosophy. We will explore a unique path to develop IB education in China.
