Welcome to the EduChina International High School and thank you for visiting us. Whether you are thinking seriously about international education for the first time or refining what has already been an active investigation into your well-formed educational goals, I invite you to explore further to see how EduChina’s philosophy and program fit with your thinking.
If my 38 years (in the United States and here in China) as a secondary school teacher, dormitory master, college counselor, Dean of Faculty, Director of Studies and Headmaster have taught me anything, it is this: the future belongs to those rising high school students who are embracing internationalism as the cornerstone of their education. The single most valuable commodity for success in the 21st century, in my view, is a keen awareness and deep understanding of the complex interconnectedness of the world’s cultures and economies. And, happily, never before in human history have modern resources including the Internet, the ease of global transportation, and the rise of a world-wide economy afforded truly “global learning” to such a large number of people.
EduChina International has been operating over a dozen high school campuses throughout China for years. Our mission is to provide able and motivated Chinese students with a unique high school experience to ready them for matriculation in typically American, British, Canadian or Australian high schools, colleges or universities. The style of teaching is aimed at familiarizing students with a learning environment that is global recognized: critical thinking skills are emphasized; collaborative lessons are introduced; debate and class participation is encouraged; problem-based learning is featured – all approaches that are, at first, unfamiliar and even intimidating to students who might have had no such prior exposure in their classrooms. Over a span of time, however, participants evolve from reserved novices toward confident and open learners ready to take fullest advantage of the opportunities that await them overseas in top ranked colleges and universities around the world.
I invite you to explore our program carefully, assess it critically, and contact us to engage in a personal conversation to learn more about the EduChina International High School model. If your goal is to secure a strong and confident foundation in internationalized education, one that that will make you a citizen of the world while retaining awareness and appreciation for your Chinese heritage and soul, EduChina International is a good match for you. Welcome!

如果我过去38年（在美国和中国）的经历，其中包括担任中学老师，寄宿主任，大学顾问，教员院长，学术主任和校长的经历只教给我一件事，那就是：未来属于那些在高中时代就将国际化作为其教育基石的学生。 在21世纪取得成功的最有价值的“商品” （注：能力），是对世界文化和经济的复杂相互联系所持有的敏锐认识和深刻理解。 令人欣喜的是，互联网，便捷的全球交通，以及世界范围内的经济崛起，为大量人群提供了“全球学习” 的条件。
