Tuition Increase
In order to provide quality service for students and enhance teaching quality, the school will take some measures every year, which include increased investment in the teaching facility, recruiting outstanding teachers, increased teachers' overseas training, enriching the curriculum and high-end teaching materials. Therefore, school tuition fees will have an average 5-10% growth every year on the basis of the above and to reflect the market economic situation of that year.

Responsibility of Payment of Fees 
The student’s parent or guardian is wholly responsible for payment of tuition and other fees by the due date, even in cases where payment may be subsidized by a third party such as the parent’s employer.
