The curriculum will follow the Chinese national standards, and be guided by the pedagogy of IB PYP and MYP. Experience of working in a start up school and bilingual education is highly desirable.

We are looking to recruit a founding PYP Coordinator for this school. All applicants must demonstrate a successful track record in a similar type of PYP Coordinator role in an international bilingual school. Applicants who have worked in a brand new PYP school will have a advantage

We are looking for open minded, forward thinking and adventurous teachers. This will be a new school and so teachers should be prepared to get stuck in and complete tasks that may not be in their job descriptions .

The school will be a learning and growing community unlike any other--students are welcomed into a world where they feel valued, appreciated and supported at all times.

This bold ambition is made possible by a team which are inspired to bring ancient wisdom and evidenced-based insights together for holistic learning and development. We put strong emphasis on family involvement in creating a space which embraces deep conceptual exploration, and practical real-life application.
