Curriculum
Our current curriculum system is in line with the national policy requirements and reflects a bilingual school’s characteristics. We strictly follow the curriculum plan of the Municipal Education Commission. State-compiled textbooks are used for these courses, which are delivered by our Chinese teachers according to the curriculum standard. We ensure a full and good offering of the compulsory Chinese curriculum to help students smoothly complete the nine-year compulsory education and participate in Zhongkao.

Our bilingual curriculum approaches the same knowledge from different angles, which will be conducive to the overall improvement of students’ learning abilities. This is designed to help our students accumulate subject-based English vocabularies, learn to think in English and boost their confidence in English expression. In this way, we intend to ensure that those who decide to enter our High School have sufficient confidence to take the challenge.

A majority of our Middle School students will continue their studies in our High School or other bilingual schools, and take IGCSE and A-Level exams for higher education in the UK or other countries. It is a must for these students to pass Zhongkao. It is worth noting that Zhongkao results are crucial for those who plan to return to the traditional education system. Thus, before the end of G8, parents, students and teachers will have an in-depth communication and assessment, whose result may determine the future direction of our students. Based on the result, we will offer courses to the students in G9 which not only benefit their individual growth, but also are in line with the national curriculum plan.


Subject-based Teaching
Taking into full account the characteristics and needs of students, as well as the differences between Chinese and English course teaching, we boldly adopt subject-based teaching for all subjects, with small class and individualised teaching, which is conducive to the cultivation of students' self-management and independent learning ability. 


The Chinese curriculum tutor group provides mobile teaching according to the curriculum standards. For the English courses, subject-based teaching is based on the English levels of students. The English curriculum is effectively connected with the Chinese courses with the same knowledge content, but different teaching perspectives and ways of thinking, which is conducive to the overall improvement of students' learning.

Classroom
Teachers of all the subjects have their own teaching classrooms, which not only provide convenience for teaching, but also make it easy in accumulating subject resources, displaying learning results and making assessment.
Prep Time & Weekly Quiz
A compulsory prep session or a weekly test will take place each school day evening for forty minutes, but an additional hour is optional. Teaching staff will circulate around the rooms, registering the pupils and following up on any absences by contacting office staff.

Students are given clear guidelines on the behaviour that is expected of them in prep.  Talking, even when work-related, is discouraged. Students are encouraged to seek help from their teachers if needed, prior to prep. Laptop computers are also allowed for only high school students, but they should only be used for academic purposes.
Assignments
We have clear standards on the amount of assignments. For routine assignments, the time for each subject should be less than 20 minutes per day. Exploratory or research assignments may be submitted within 1-3 days, so as to ensure the quality of such assignments finished by students. 
Term Exam
We only organise a unified exam at the end of each semester, covering all the subjects so as to examine the studies of students in various subjects and promote their holistic development.
Academic Report
We have a well-established academic quality monitoring system. Through an internal data management platform, we regularly provide academic reports for parents. Full end-of-term reports include an extended comment from each subject teacher on progress made and suggestion for further improvement. In addition, our students receive academic grades.
Parent Teacher Meeting

We organise two one-on-one parent teacher meetings every semester. Teachers give feedbacks on each student's behaviour at school and academic performance to the student and his/her parents.
