We are delighted that you are considering enrolling your child. Our purpose at YCIS Beijing is to assist students with their transition from one country or one education system to another, to provide high quality education and to introduce students to the fascinating cultural and historical heritage of our host country. Our students study a truly unique research-based international curriculum that merges the best of Eastern and Western traditions and provides students with an authentic immersion into Chinese culture within an international framework. This allows us to approach the study of world issues from a global perspective, foster cultural respect and develop fluency in two major world languages of the 21st century.
