High School Subject Teaching Jobs

Our International Schools’ high school program is currently holding interview for qualified subject teachers to join us at various locations around China. We have positions for multiple subject teachers including Science, Social Studies, PE, Music, English, Math, IT, Food Science, Fine Arts and Business.

Our original mission was to provide a blend of the best of Chinese and North American educational practices, to prepare Chinese students for success in post-secondary studies outside of China. Our first school opened in Dalian in 1995 and we are now based in 23 major cities across China, including Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xi’an, Dalian, Chongqing, Wuhan and Zhenjiang with 28 pre-schools, 27 elementary schools, 26 middle schools, 16 high schools, and 3 foreign national schools. Our high school program mirrors the high school curriculum offered in British Columbia, Canada.

Through an agreement with the British Columbia Ministry of Education, supported by an accreditation process, which includes annual inspections, our International Schools offer the offshore BC high school diploma program.

The BC Ministry of Education mandates the curriculum content, which provides the same foundation skills as are delivered students in schools in British Columbia. At the high school level all courses that meet the credit requirements of the BC Graduation.

We have created a uniquely designed program delivery model that introduces a western teaching model to our students. We incorporate best practices in learning including active learning, cooperative learning, and critical thinking. We understand that most of our students are new to English-only classrooms and western methods of teaching, including personal responsibility for meeting learning outcomes. Integrated language learning is a component of the classroom experience, preparing students with the skills and academic proficiency required for success in North American colleges and universities.

Opportunities for students to develop language fluency and oral communication are a part of every course. Our students graduate with the skills that making them ideal global candidates for top-level college and universities worldwide.

Our goal to equip students for entry into top universities remains paramount. With this in mind, we offer many unique features:
