University Guidance: Supporting Every Student

Welcome New Staff!
Yew Chung International School of Beijing is excited to be welcoming several new members of staff to the team this year. This week, the campus sprung back into life with new and old faces as meetings, inductions and activities took place around the school.
Learning Chinese for the First Time
Chinese language learning lies at the very heart of the Yew Chung International School of Beijing curriculum. Students receive Chinese language lessons every day, and throughout ECE and Primary, lessons are co-taught with one Chinese and one English-speaking teacher. It means that our students achieve a very high standard of Chinese by the time they reach the end of school – with this year more than half of our students taking the bilingual IB Diploma in Year 13.
Welcome to YCIS Beijing!
