The philosophy of the SUIS group is 'Where East Meets West' and this is at the forefront of our approach here at Hongqiao. We have created a personalized bilingual education for our students which is underpinned by a strong values-driven environment.

Our primary school (ages 6-11) is partly based on the SUIS Pioneer Curriculum which has been in place at Hongqiao campus for seven years. The Pioneer Curriculum integrates the compulsory local curriculum with English language and a Western thematic approach.

We are proud to have had excellent, globally-minded bilingual students graduate from our school and achieve their goals of attending a range of top middle schools.
