A commitment to lifelong learning, for ourselves and our students so we can all make a positive difference
Dehong International Chinese School recognises that exceptional and inspirational teachers are our most valuable resource in providing our students with an excellent international education. Dehong teachers are ambitious for their students’ learning and put students first in everything they do. They have the highest aspirations for their students’ achievement and development, both in the classroom and through the many coand extra-curricular activities on offer. Our teachers actively promote the School’s mission and vision through their enthusiastic and full participation in school life and their supportive engagement with students, colleagues and parents.

He/she develops positive and caring relationships with students, parents and all school staff and motivates students to love learning.
