Who we are now is probably of most interest to parents looking at a place for their child's education. SIS has been continuously accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) since 1992. This accreditation ensures that our school is recognised globally as meeting the standards suitable to allow students to transfer or graduate seamlessly to high quality schools in the USA and elsewhere in the world.
In 2010, we were authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School to deliver the IB Diploma Programme. This was expanded in 2020 with the addition of the Primary Years Programme. Prior to this time, we offered an accredited American style elementary program, however we adopted the PYP to assist student transition and enhance the international focus of our curriculum and pedagogy.
SIS is one of only two schools in the Greater China region to be designated an Apple Distinguished School for its internationally recognized program of learning innovation. The school is a also member of the East Asian Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS), the Association for the Advancement of International Education (AAIE) and a member of Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) organization.
Who we will become is a matter for all members of our community. It is our commitment to provide a relevant education that inspires and prepares students for the future that ensures we must continuously evolve.
