Facts from across QSI
University Acceptance Rate
When I first joined QSI I was extremely nervous as it was my first time living in a different country and my first time attending an international school. My fears were quickly eradicated as I was welcomed into a warm environment filled with supportive and friendly people. This type of environment helped me to become a more confident and outgoing individual. Not only is the school filled with amiable students, the teachers are also in tune with the needs of the student. The pupil-teacher ratio provides plenty of opportunity for one-on-one tutoring which has been instrumental in the advancement of my studies. Overall my time in QSI has proved to be a very rewarding experience.
QSI Shenzhen has been an easy transition for my children from the American curriculum they were used to in the US. I like to see the kids thinking and learning outside the box. My children really enjoy being able to participate in the different activity classes that help them explore hobbies that they might not otherwise get to try like 3D printing, STEM challenges, badminton, or Dragon TV. My children are happier here than they’ve been at any other school we’ve been to, abroad or at home. And that is what I love the most.
I chose QSI as a place of employment and a school for my child because it is a globally minded community committed to empowering individuals. The teachers respect each child’s personality, individual learning styles, and cultural background. They deeply care about student self-worth, achievement, and instilling the love of lifelong learning. In addition, the academic challenges of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, coupled with a wide range of enrichment programs are options to chose from to prepare students to be successful in the future.
