Zhuhai International School

Welcome to a new school year at Zhuhai International School, proudly celebrating 16 years of service to the expatriate community in Zhuhai and Zhongshan.

Our school takes great pride in providing a personalized International Baccalaureate (IB) learning experience for our 250 students. Nestled between the tropical forest of beautiful Qi’Ao Island and its sandy shores, our campus is a safe and inspirational setting to nurture the whole child. At ZIS we aim to shape the future with caring, confident and creative citizens of the world. This is achieved through challenging, meaningful and engaging academic pursuits.

ZIS is committed to outstanding signature programmes designed to complement the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (DP). These programmes prioritize holistic development through service learning, interdisciplinary studies and community-based experiences.

Over 50 dedicated teachers make student wellbeing and growth their highest priority. They lead engaging learning that equips students to stretch themselves, take intellectual risks and refine skills in collaboration, critical thinking, communication and reflection. Our students are empowered to keep their options open by pursuing the prestigious IB Diploma. With an IB education, ZIS graduates can access universities worldwide and chart meaningful careers aligned with their varied passions.

At our school, students become globally minded thanks to daily interactions with citizens from over 25 nations and through intercultural experiences built into our curriculum. Their global perspectives are further enriched by field trips, local excursions and travel opportunities that broaden their international outlook. Students also actively participate in team sports and activities within the Pearl River Delta Conference and the Association of Chinese and Mongolian International Schools (ACAMIS). In 2023 our ZIS teams excelled in the renowned academic contests, the World Scholar’s Cup and China’s Business Simulation.

By earning accreditation from the highly regarded Council of International Schools (CIS) in 2023, ZIS has demonstrated that its programmes, operations and culture align with the highest standards for student-centred learning, global citizenship and continuous enhancement.
