Our caring faculty is recruited from native-English speaking countries, and holds certifications in their core content areas. We offer a combination of small class sizes coupled with a performance-based, Mastery Learning approach. This ensures that students receive the attention and personalization needed to achieve success at any level.

As we focus on the whole child, we also introduce and teach Success Orientations (SOs) throughout the classroom and school.  As the QSI Zhuhai Jaguars we are TRACKING through the SOs which include Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Aesthetic Appreciation, Concern for Others, Kindness and Politeness, Independent Endeavor and Group Interaction.

Students engage in a rigorous academic schedule including core classes in: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Cultural Studies and Science. We also offer a full range of specialist courses and electives, including Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer Technology and Chinese Language. In additional to our in school activities and opportunities taking place, we also offer after school activities beginning with the 5 year old students.  Our Secondary students have access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses in a variety of subject areas, providing a challenging course of study culminating in graduation.
