The Job
Our international school is now looking for energetic, enthusiastic and qualified English teachers who can provide a highly engaging and effective learning experience to young learners aged 6 to 15 years old. If you have a strong passion to educate young learners and you possess a keen interest in honing their talents and English speaking ability, we would like to invite you to join our international school in Shanghai. You will be teaching English (IB), English Language Arts and Literature.

We are a boarding school established in September 1996 and with 2,200 students enrolled and a total of 225 teachers, including a team of 60 foreign teachers. In September 2002, our school launched the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in the high school section. The application of this program passed the examination of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in May 2003, and the school has been a member school of the IBO since then.

In October 2005, our school underwent the scrutiny of CITA, which is an international and cross-regional accreditation organization, and was granted as a member school for CITA China Model School accreditation. In December 2004, the school was recognized as one of the first bilingual schools in Shanghai.

Known as the Pearl of the Orient, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago, it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of the colonial past of Shanghai, featuring grand European architecture.

For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals daily life.

The Curriculum

Our curriculum includes three core courses, which are a reflection of the uniqueness of the IBO diploma program.

-Theory of Knowledge
-Extended Essay
