Yew Wah International Education Schools are built upon the many decades of experience of Yew Chung International School in offering quality international education in Hong Kong and mainland China. With the opening of YWIES Shanghai Lingang Campus, Yew Wah provides education to Chinese and foreign students in Shanghai and neighbouring cities with international education programmes ranging from Primary to Upper Secondary in a unique international setting.
With the strong support and help of Lingang Government and Pudong Education Bureau, YWIES Shanghai Lingang is the first international school in Lingang area of Pudong, Shanghai.
The school facilities are specifically designed to ensure that all students from different age groups study in a safe and friendly environment. The state-of-the-art equipment, spacious classrooms, modern library, gymnasium, sports grounds, multimedia centre and student residence hall provide students with everything they need.
After months of waiting and anticipation, the founding year students and parents were very excited to see this beautiful campus with cutting-edge facilities and star hotel services.
Curriculum of YWIES of Shanghai Lingang is holistic and includes spiritual, moral, physical, social and emotional development as well as an emphasis on high academic standards. The school introduces new educational concepts of Co-Principals, Co-Teaching, liberating the joy of learning, building bilingual skills and multicultural perspectives for students. Through Co-teaching by top professionals, YWIES Shanghai is committed to the development of well-rounded individuals.
When Dr Chan and Professor Yip passed the Yew Wah flag to Ms Stella Zhou and Mr Christopher Munn, the founding Co-principals, it was the heritage that has been passed on, assuring the success of another great Yew Wah school.
