At the German Swiss International School we encourage and foster the talents of our students – as well-rounded individuals, responsible team members and open-minded citizens of the 21st century. We help our students explore the traditions that surround, shape and enrich us: the worlds of the German and English-speaking countries as well as of our host country China.
We offer education in two parallel streams, leading to internationally recognised diplomas. Our school comprises all levels from kindergarten through to secondary school and business college. We cooperate. We share. We learn from each other.
We are a centre of educational excellence, within a vibrant, creative and caring community. Read More »

I suppose that's why I even teach in my spare time (I am a PADI Dive Instructor)!
