Introducing the Co-Teaching Model in Secondary
Raising globally competent leaders is an integral part of our Mission at Yew Chung International School of Beijing. Our Co-Teaching Model, unique to our school, supports our goal to create an environment that exposes children to the concept of multiculturalism and bilingualism from as early as the Early Childhood Education (ECE) through Primary School years. Based on the positive results this has yielded in our earlier years, the Co-Teaching Model will now be gradually introduced to our Secondary School.
