Shu Ren International School, California’s first Mandarin immersion IB World School, is a co-educational day school serving students from Preprimary 2 through Grade 8. Currently, the middle school offers grade 6 and will grow through grade 8 by the fall of 2017. The middle school is using the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) model* to implement an inquiry-based, constructivist pedagogy to engage middle school students. The IB framework is an internationally-recognized curriculum used by the top authorized 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 students to not only become critical thinkers and lifelong learners but also caring, open-minded, principled, and balanced global citizens.
