We are extremely proud to announce the authorization of Zhuhai International School as an International Baccalaureate (IBO) PYP World School. The first and only of it’s kind in Zhuhai, adding another jewel in the crown of Zhuhai City.
The authorization marks an achievement of international proportions. ZIS is the first and only IBO PYP World School in Zhuhai, offering all three IB Programmes of the PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programme) and DP (Diplioma Programme). Below is an excerpt from the report received by the school form the IBO Head Office:
We would like to express our appreciation to the administration and the entire staff at Zhuhai International School for arranging a very professional and informative visit. We would also like to thank all support staff and significantly, the enthusiastic students who engaged the visiting team in informative dialogue about their learning.
The staff have genuinely embraced the PYP framework and have worked individually and collectively towards developing curriculum documentation and are beginning to explore inquiry methodology. The openness and honesty of the staff during discussions was evidence of the manner in which the learner profile is embedded in their practice. The school has provided planning and professional development time in recognition that the journey the school is undertaking involves significant paradigm shifts. The staff are thanked for their honesty and openness in all discussions. They reflected on the achievements so far and are committed to continue the successful implementation of the PYP.
