Hong Qiao International School

Rainbow Bridge International School is an inclusive learning community located in the Shanghai Zoo, one of the largest green spaces in Shanghai. We educate children aged eighteen months to grade six in a relaxed environ- ment that cultivates each student's social, emotional, and creative abilities. Daily zoo access enables students to observe the natural world and provides extraordinary opportunities for animal studies. As an IB Primary Years Program Candidate School, the numerous ponds, wooded areas, and open fields support inquiry-based and cross-curricular learning. Ongoing projects like our organic garden and campus-wide recycling program help educate students about conservation and responsible consumption, and our yearly Earth Day festival, held in- side the Shanghai Zoo, unites the local and international communities and helps raise environmental awareness.
