Our International Private School is now looking for a dedicated Executive Deputy Principal to provide leadership to teachers, parents, and students in grades K-12 while actively promoting a holistic professional plan in a dynamic system dedicated to honor, excellence, community, and joy at our school in Beijing. We are an internationally focused private school serving students from kindergarten to high school.

Our school was originally founded in 2005, and over the years the school’s reputation grew along with enrollment demands as we expanded to include international students nationwide. We have a teaching staff of over 360 that serve over 1,650 students from Pre-K to Grade 12 in both English and Chinese tracks. Additionally, we now we have a newly established high school campus to meet the huge demand for English education in Beijing to prepare students for international paths.

You will be responsible for the daily operational and educational management of the Chinese and English Track of the high school and adhere to the “student-centered” principle and lead the administration and educational work in both tracks.

Our uniqueness is centered on our philosophy and approach to education, namely, a very strong emphasis on providing a holistic bilingual and bicultural education to the Chinese students who attend our school. While it may sound like a cliché, our school genuinely has a very family feel about it. This is highlighted by the way we care for not only the children but also each other.
