About Shanghai United International School - Xiamen Campus
Shanghai United International School (SUIS) Xiamen Campus
Educating students aged 6-18 years
SUIS Xiamen is a member of the largest educational not-for-profit organization (Xiehe) in Shanghai. SUIS Xiamen opened in August 2017 and will soon accommodate 1000 students (Grades 1-11), 130 teachers (international and local) and 25 support staff. Located in the beautiful, sub-tropical city of Xiamen our campus is the most geographically removed from SUIS in Shanghai, the School is already an accredited Cambridge Examinations Centre. From August 2019 SUIS Xiamen will open a new High School campus in the same road. SUIS Xiamen was granted approval for this at a recent high-profile government ceremony in the famous Exhibition Centre in the heart of the city, which hosted at a BRICS Conference President Xi of China, formerly the governor of this beautiful city-island. We seek qualified and experienced teachers to join us in maintaining our excellent reputation for international education here in China.
We promote international and bilingual education, personalized learning and the holistic development of each student. Our curriculum in the Primary and Middle Schools is our own variation of the SUIS ‘East meets West’ Pioneer Curriculum leading to an international programme in the High School where A Levels are studied. The Pioneer Curriculum integrates the compulsory local curriculum with English language and a Western thematic approach. SUIS Xiamen prepares students not only to be admitted to the world's pre-eminent universities but also to flourish and prosper in their future lives as responsible and pro-active members of their prospective communities wherever they may be. In order to provide the best ‘East meets West’ education to children and enable them to be effective global citizens, we encourage collaboration and co-teaching where appropriate among teachers.
Our school community is renowned for its creative and nurturing approach. Both Primary and Secondary school productions were written and performed by our students and the musical score composed by our teachers. This is a cultural tradition we are proud of and aim to continue.
SUIS Xiamen boasts fine campus facilities with an Olympic sized swimming pool, spacious gymnasium catering for up to four PE lessons simultaneously, outdoor athletics track and artificial playing surface, extensive music and art zones, auditorium and lecture theatres. These amenities are used to full effect to ensure every student receives a highly effective holistic education. They are also used by staff regularly to play a wide range of sports.
In both schools, staff turnover is very low with many teachers seeing SUIS Xiamen as an excellent pathway for professional growth. Many have become leaders and continuously receive our support in their development.
If you are interested in making a significant impact on our friendly and high-achieving school entering an exciting phase in its development, then we strongly recommend you apply.
