About Guanghua Cambridge International School

Due to the differences between the education systems, Chinese students find the direct move from a Chinese high school system to a Western University exceedingly difficult. Language learning and cultural differences in educational systems make it challenging for a Chinese high school graduate to do well, if s/he has not been exposed to foreign language content instruction at home.

An appreciation of these problems by Chinese parents has led to a growing demand for offering an internationally recognized curriculum (A level) for Chinese high school students who intend on continuing their education overseas. Guanghua Cambridge International School has taken a key role in offering this academic alternative.

More than eleven years have passed since our first opening in August 2011. We have thrived from a promisingly new school of 88 students to a large influential school of more than 1200 students and nearly 200 teaching and administrative staff. With an auspicious start, greater achievements have been proudly brought to us by our students this year (Sep. 2022), a total number of 1286 offers have been received by our graduating class of 2022, among which 13 were from Cambridge or Oxford University, 31 from London School of Economics, 52 from Imperial College London and 193 from University College London. 131 from Toronto University (Canada) and 121 from Hongkong University (China). As a result of this, GHCIS was ranked the no. 1 A-level school in Shanghai and the East China region in terms of university destinations.

The school's culture and ethos define the school's identity. Our school’s motto is 'Happy International School'. We strongly believe that happy teachers create a happy school. Based on our past experience in the international educational field, we realize how important good relationships are in a school and how a buzzing and friendly environment helps teachers and students in the process of productive teaching and learning. We welcome and respect cultural diversity. The school is committed to creating a relaxed but disciplined working environment, to attract top talented professionals and maintain a high retention rate.
