Tsinghua International School

As a division of the High School Attached to Tsinghua University, THIS provides curriculum and instruction based on American progressive educational philosophies and practices, while also integrating Chinese perspectives on education. Our Primary School curriculum follows the "Bank Street" model of education, in which "lively intellectual curiosities turn the world into an exciting laboratory and keep one ever a learner." Our curriculum in the Secondary School furthers this interactive foundation and is designed to prepare students for entry into colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, and other western countries. We nurture our students to become global citizens with a global perspective, ready to engage with the world as leaders and participants in the realities of an interactive, international society. Our instruction is student-centered, and we strive to harness the unique qualities, skills, and talents of our student body.
