International School in Zhoushan
Our school on Zhoushan island, located in Zhejiang province, just south of Shanghai, is looking for open-minded, adventurously spirited and professional teachers to join our team. Currently, we are seeking a Primary School ESL teacher as well as the option for High School Math and Science teachers. This is an ideal position for someone who wants to move their teaching career forward with a modern school that provides first-class facilities and equipment.
Do you want to grow professionally with a progressive and comprehensive school in China? Are you excited about living in and experiencing one of the most beautiful cities that China has to offer? Teach with confidence and reassurance as there will be ongoing teacher development and training provided in order to better adapt methods in a different environment. We have a range of students to work with that range between 7 to 19 years old depending on the subject taught. Classes are kept to a smaller size of roughly 30 students to allow for easier class management and attentive care for individual learning needs.
Our parent school has been consistently providing quality education for our local community needs since its establishment in 1992 and in doing so was chosen as “the National Outstanding Private School” by the Ministry of Education. Replicating the core values with the same level of quality at our school has led to a partnership with a prominent aeronautical giant “The Boeing Company”.
Zhoushan – The City
Zhoushan is in the coastal area of eastern Zhejiang in the fringe of Hangzhou Bay. It is the only city established on the basis of a group of islands, the Zhoushan Archipelago. You can appreciate the sand sculpture at Zhujiajian Island or go to swimming on one of the beaches of the Shengshi Islands. From Dongji (Farthest East) Island where the first rays of sunlight every day, every year and every century first hit the Chinese mainland, all the way to Qingbang (Green Waters) Island where you can see the “Potala Palace of the Sea”, the whole archipelago is full of amazing sites. With Zhoushan being the largest fishing ground in China you can easily find fresh seafood to be devoured in various cooking styles.
