SUIS Xiamen is a member of the largest educational not-for-profit organization (Xiehe) in Shanghai. SUIS Xiamen opened in August 2017 and now boasts 600 students (Grades 1-10), 100 teaching staff (international and local) and 25 support staff approximately. 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 Senior School. The Pioneer Curriculum integrates the compulsory local curriculum with English language and a Western thematic approach. Our aim is to enable the placement of SUIS Xiamen students in leading universities around the world. In order to provide the best ‘East meets West’ education to children and enable them to be effective global citizens, we encourage co-teaching among the subject specialists. 

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. 

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.
