about us

Hello and welcome to Shekou International School.

This year we celebrate 31 years of providing expatriate students with the highest standard of education and a truly international experience. Our staff and students come from more than 40 nations to live in our Shekou community. This is a unique location where the innovation and vibrancy of China is most active, and our school is proud to have been a part of this region for longer than any other international school.

Our mission is to provide students an inspiring education and to do so in a caring and nurturing community. We help each student to become a principled, innovative contributor in an ever-changing and transforming world. Our students are our best representatives as they graduate to great universities and achieve success in a wide array of contexts.

Student-centred approaches are at the heart of how our teachers work with each student - from early childhood to graduation. Our strong academic achievements are built through hands-on learning and deep understanding. Our curriculum is developed from the best and most relevant national standards with a commitment to the renown international baccalaureate so that students can seamlessly transition to and from schools around the world.

Our students can take full advantage of the best educational technology in all grades. Beyond the classroom, SIS students can participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities which contribute significantly to their physical and social development.

You'll find many stories on this site about our school, our community and most importantly our students. And you will find many more inspiring and exciting stories and people if you can visit our school in person. You will always find a warm welcome and inspiration here at SIS.
