img_6715On June 8th, Shanghai United International School Gubei Secondary hosted the graduation ceremony for their first generation of high school graduates. 

These graduates are composed of local Chinese and many international students from the UK, USA, France, Singapore, Canada, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Italy, Netherlands, and Kazakhstan and many other countries. They started their education in Xiehe between 2 and 7 years ago. Some of them have received an international education from childhood, and some were transferred from other Shanghai schools. No matter what kind of educational pathways they have experienced before, they still maintained their dream to be admitted by the very best overseas universities on completing secondary school.

It is so exciting to see the long list of student acceptances from the world’s top universities. Thirteen of the university offers SUIS Gubei Secondary received this year came from the world’s top 100 universities, including University of Cambridge, UK (ranked first in the world according to US World News Report 2012), University of Toronto, (ranked first in Canada and 20th in the world) and the University of Hong Kong (ranked first in Asia). That equates to almost one offer from a world-class university per student, placing SUIS Gubei Secondary as a leading academic school in China.  

“What we focus on is ensuring our students receive a world-class, all-round international education in which our students strive to be the best academically and at the same time become responsible model global citizens – world leaders of tomorrow. We would like to see our students reach our high standards as well as getting top grades. After entering a world-famous university, our students are expected to continue to excel in their new environment.” Mr James Morris, the Vice-Principal of SUIS Gubei Secondary says, “The parents and students deserve nothing less. They expect and we deliver more than mediocrity. Excellence is the minimum standard at SUIS Gubei Secondary.”
