Our challenging, creative curriculum; low student-to-teacher ratio; and small-group learning style will help your child not only become an outstanding academic performer, but also an outstanding human being.

  1. Caring Community

    YCIS families and faculty come together to encourage our students to grow into purposeful individuals ready to make a meaningful mark on our world. In this intercultural community, families play an important role as they spark close, lifelong friendships.

  2. Engaged Student Life

    YCIS students dream, create, question and embrace new points of view as they experience learning and life. Learning extends beyond the classroom through field trips, school events and traditions, performances, service projects and more.

  3. Bilingual Education

    By learning Mandarin and English simultaneously, students develop both language and cultural fluency; become flexible, open thinkers; and sharpen their critical communication skills. Learn more about the benefits of bilingual learning.

  4. Unique Legacy

    YCIS is able to provide such a dynamic education, which blends the best of Eastern and Western traditions, thanks to our connection with the YCIS family of international schools.

Give your child the confidence to explore, adapt and succeed as a globally aware citizen of our world. Learn more about YCIS.
