Olive International School
Dear current parents and friends,
We want to wish you and your loved ones a warm welcome to Olive International School. It’s with great excitement and joy that we welcome both local Chinese and foreign students. Our school is a fully western education incorporating inquiry-based, project-based, and problem-based learning. We also maintain smaller class sizes so that we may meet and address the needs of each student on an individual basis, whether it be emotional or academic. You could consider us to be a boutique school, but we will offer every opportunity to each student to engage the larger world, whether it be through inter-school competitions/interactions or international competitions/events abroad. We pride ourselves on being a school that cares so that our students will also CARE! (ref: ESLRs)
Another important benefit of Olive International School, is that not only will the student get the American experience, but he or she will get the Chinese experience because we are a school that is in China. We feel this is especially important. Instead of having to go abroad to get a western education resulting in cultural confusion and emotional stress, our students can receive the best of both worlds. Moreover, the family gets to stay together until the student will leave the home to go off to the best universities and colleges around the world.
At Olive International School, we do something called community teaching. What this means is that community is not something that is done passively, but rather it is done very purposefully. Teachers are challenged and given opportunities to engage their students both in and out of the classroom. We are here together as a family. And by being this family, that’s how we demonstrate love. That’s how we demonstrate kindness. That’s how we demonstrate courage. Welcome to our school and our family!
