Shanghai United International Schools 

Our schools are experiencing rapid growth and we seek qualified and experienced teachers to join us on our journey to promote a curriculum of excellence here in China. Drawing on 25 years of experience, we currently have seven school campuses in and near Shanghai with three further schools nationally which provide various curriculum pathways for over 20000 students, 5000 of which are international curriculum students taught by over 700 western teachers. 

Location: Wuxi campus 

8 Wen jing Road , Business District (near the High Speed Railway Station), Xi Dong New Town, Wuxi, China

SUIS Wuxi campus exudes a philosophy of “East Meets West” and has a truly international flavour, being only 25 minutes from Shanghai by train. Our campus is modern and well–equipped, as you would expect from a school opened only 5 years ago with a theatre seating 550 people, many performance venues within the schools and an increasing staff within the English department. Although we are going through tremendous growth, we are fortunate to have a large international staff that is enthusiastic and motivated to help in this exciting process. Our curriculum in the secondary school follows a programme of KS3 (SUIS modified), IGCSE (CIE) and IBDP with an emphasis on balance and pastoral involvement in tandem with academic progression. With each year more students are opting for English A although Mandarin is their first language.
