Changchun American International School(CAIS) is the first Pre-K -12 international school in Jilin Province and is authorized by Provincial and Central Governments. The school serves children of China’s global expatriate communities.

 

CAIS only had a few students when it started in 2006, but today over 300 students from more than 30 different countries attend the school. Our qualified faculty members come from 20 countries and offer courses in English, Mandarin, German, French, Spanish, Korean, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, History, Business and Management, Economics, Geography, Psychology, ITGS, PE, Art and Music.

 

In addition, an extensive extra-curricular program is offered to students, allowing them to develop hobbies and interests. In 2009, the Virtual World 3D technology was introduced to CAIS. In 2013 CAIS began its 1:1 iPad pilot program embracing the iPad as a valuable teaching tool.  With the iPad, the Internet and teaching have been intertwined. CAIS is also a registered Cambridge (UK) exam test centre administering standardized English language tests for students of many ages. CAIS offers tests twice a year at two different levels, in our PYP and MYP programs.

 

As an IB World School, CAIS graduates have access to more than 2,500 universities in nearly 146 nations which receive IB DP graduates, including America’s Ivy League schools and the universities of Cambridge and Oxford in the United Kingdom.
