Springboard International Bilingual School Opens in Shunyi

Springboard International Bilingual School (Springboard) has recently opened its doors to families in Beijing. Springboard currently accepts students from Kindergarten to grade 5. There are also plans to open a nursery class soon, and next year to have a grade 6 class.

Currently, there are about 35 students. Although still a small group, they are also international – from Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Liberia, Mozambique, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, the UK and the USA.

The foreign teachers come from Canada, the USA, the UK, and India, and have a clear, shared desire to do the very best possible for the children they teach. Springboard offers a bilingual program – 75% English, 25% Chinese. Each day the students have a Chinese language lesson and a Chinese math lesson, with the other six lessons being taught by the foreign teachers.

Springboard runs very small class sizes – all the classes are less than 10 students. This gives the teachers an opportunity to really focus on the individual needs of the students in class.

“Every school is different, with their own particular strengths. We think that the personalized, bilingual education that we offer is different from many other schools, and that will make it very attractive to many parents,” said Mr. Roger Fisher, founding principal of Springboard International Bilingual School. “Our goal for this first year is very simple. We want this first group of students to enjoy a truly wonderful and successful year – both academically and socially. These students will be our ambassadors – they will be the ones who set the high standards that all our future students will follow. Everyone associated with the school will be working hard to ensure they receive an education of the highest possible quality.”
