Yew Chung International School of Chongqing welcomes our new students and parents to Semester 2 of the 2017/18 academic year.
You are certainly joining this progressive international school at an exciting time in its development. In early 2017, the school completed an international accreditation process with three educational bodies, CIS, NEASC and NCCT, which recognizes that YCIS Chongqing offers educational opportunities that meet their international standards. Additionally, we were granted authorization to offer the IB Diploma Programme to Year 12 & 13 students, which is considered the best pre-tertiary qualification anywhere in the world.
YCIS Chongqing provides stimulating learning opportunities for your children and we encourage all our parents to utilize the many opportunities to become actively engaged with the whole school programme. All research indicates that children learn most effectively when families take an active interest in their child’s learning and work with us develop a positive and collaborative relationship that supports their child’s learning.
We view the 2017/18 academic years as a ‘year of exploration’, building on the school’s strengths and unearthing potential within our students and staff. Our aim is to develop into one of the regions premier international schools, offering the IB Diploma Programme. I know you will be extremely impressed with the commitment and motivation of all our staff, teachers and support staff.
We welcome all our new families to the YCIS Chongqing community and encourage you all to actively engage in the whole school programme, fully participating in all school events, joining the very active Parent Organisation and supporting your child’s learning by communicating continually with the school.
