Tsinghua International School

Established in March 2009, Tsinghua International School is an integration of Chinese and Western education and culture. The school provides students on two campuses with an education that introduces the western progressive education philosophy with acculturation. THIS has a primary, middle and high school and currently we have more than 560 students. The students come from more than 20 countries and regions including the US, UK and Canada.

The school offers an inquiry based, progressive form of education to all students that includes the use of project-based instruction, cooperative learning, writer's workshop, and interdisciplinary experiences. In addition, high school students may participate in Advanced Placement courses.

Students at THIS have a wealth of activities from which they can choose to participate. There are more than 25 clubs and organizations, three sports seasons filled with opportunities for athletes at every level, and after school programs that range from working in the STEAM lab to working on your jump shot!

Tsinghua International School’s mission is to "foster creative critical thinkers who are rooted in China and prepared to lead in the global community."
The school aims to develop the whole child, nurturing individuals of exceptional character who will make positive contributions to the world.

Teachers have extensive planning time and professional development. They are encouraged to utilize creative and innovative methodologies in the classroom while working within frameworks provided by the American Common Core Standards as well as school norms.
