Shu Ren International School Proudly Announces the Launch of a Second Education Track For Non-Mandarin Speaking Students

Shu Ren International School, California’s first Mandarin immersion IB World School, is pleased to announce the launch of our inaugural sixth grade class in September 2015. The Middle School will serve both non-Mandarin speakers and bilingual Mandarin/English speakers. Both non-Mandarin speakers and bilingual students are welcome to apply to the Middle School at Shu Ren. The Middle School will offer sixth grade in the fall of 2015 and will grow through eighth grade by the fall of 2017. For our Middle School we will use the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) model* to implement an inquiry-based, constructivist pedagogy to engage all of our learners. The IB framework is an internationally-recognized curriculum used by the top independent schools in over 148 countries around the world. In addition to empowering our students to achieve their highest academic potential, conscious focus on character development along with attention to the whole child is integrated into our teaching methods by using the IB Learner Profile. In this the teaching staff guides our students to not only become critical thinkers and lifelong learners but also caring, open-minded, principled, and balanced global citizens.   *Shu Ren International School is an authorized PYP school and is a candidate for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), which is designed to prepare students for the IB Diploma Programme (DP) or the Career-related Programme (CP). Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted....
