The Job

Our school is now looking for professional and qualified teachers to teach IB economics in Shanghai, China. We are one of the most prestigious private boarding schools in Shanghai with more than 1,600 students aged between 6 to 15 years old.

Established in 1996, we focus on building a harmonious and progressive cultural atmosphere where students learn eastern and western cultures together through cultural exchange activities. Foreign teachers are expected to have dynamic and interactive classes and not only teach according to the book. They are allowed to be creative and organize different class activities like debates, open discussions, group work and more.

Our course materials follow compulsory education books such as “International Language” by McGraw Hill and our science books are from Longman Pearson. We also have a variety of teaching materials and resources that the teachers can use. We have computer rooms, a library, interactive whiteboards, and computer reading laboratories.

Shanghai – The City

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 Shanghai’s colonial past 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.
