Shekou International School provides a rigorous education in a caring community and inspires our students to become principled, innovative contributors in a transforming world.


The purpose of education is to prepare people to play a full and active role as global citizens throughout their lives. Shekou International School was founded to serve the educational needs of expatriates residing in Shenzhen.


We believe that...

  • A foundation in knowledge and skills is essential for continual learning, personal development and sound decision-making.
  • Integrity, humility, and respect are fundamental to successful relationships.
  • Learning to set goals and priorities is essential to the development of perseverance, critical thinking and confidence in students as well as staff.
  • Successful learning is fostered by an active, supportive partnership and consistent expectations within the child’s school and home learning environments.
  • Active involvement in service learning and recognition of cultural diversity is critical in developing responsible, compassionate youth who can adjust to life in an ever-changing world.
  • Technology is a conduit through which students learn, create, collaborate and share.
