International Schools in Beijing

Home > Expat Guides > Asia > China > Beijing

Beijing is rapidly growing and accommodating more and more expats. This has led to an increase in foreigner-oriented schools with bilingual or tri-lingual classes. There is a wide choice of international schools and kindergartens, each with its own unique approach to education. Some schools offer an Internal Baccalaureate and General Certificate of Secondary Education. There are also schools that provide a non-English education (e.g. French, Japanese, German) that can help an expat student feel more at home.
