We encourage all parents to be involved in their child’s learning and in the wider CAIS family. On behalf of all of our teachers I invite you to become our partners in educating your children.

Message from the Head of School and Acting Secondary Principal

Welcome to all members of our CAIS community! It is my honor and privilege to join CAIS as we start our 15th academic year. It is an incredible accomplishment that the school grew from educating a handful of students in 2006 to the premier international school in our region that it is now.

CAIS is the first authorized IB continuum school in North-Eastern China, offering the Primary, Middle Years, and Diploma programs under one roof. We are excited to embark on the next stage of our development as we bring years of dedicated work to fruition by seeking accreditation from the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). In addition, we are strengthening our language programs in English, Chinese and German, and expanding our offerings for students to ensure that they develop their passions while they study at our school. We look forward to showcasing our students’ abilities more in visual and performing arts, and sports and activities. Further developments of technology integration in our students’ education is also a major goal for our school.

We will continue our high level of service to our students as they are becoming critical thinkers, life-long learners, and balanced and happy members of our community.
