At Shu Ren International School, we take pride in preparing our students to navigate a complex international world with extensive lessons in communication, academics, and technology. For children Grades 3 and up, we have a 1 to 1 chromebook program where students learn important computer skills via the IB (International Baccalaureate) curriculum model. In our Maker’s Space area, our middle years program students (Grades 6 and up), have the opportunity to use both traditional and modern technology such as: sewing machines, 3D Printers, crafting tools (for wood and metal work), photo editing software, Apple desktop computers, 3D pens, and much more.
Our library is the home of a fantastic multilingual collection of online and print resources as well as our bilingual library specialist, Lan Miao. Our library is split into three sections: PYP Lower (grades K-3), PYP Upper (grades 3-6), and MYP (grades 5-8). The library adds new books to the collection every month, as well as coordinates book displays that correspond to school wide monthly events and themes. Our students have access to our online catalogue to search for and check out books to use within and outside of school. Our literary collection consists of materials in Mandarin, Spanish, and English, including but not limited to: graphic novels, picture books, non-fiction, level readers, dictionaries and thesauri, maps, and professional literature for teachers and staff. Other resources include: DVDs, CDs/audio books, Razz kids, iChinese Reader, and Chairman’s Bao (for middle school students). The library itself is one of our major centers of learning and is equipped with WiFi, plush bean bag chairs, a reading lounge with a couch and pillows, reading buddies (in the form of stuffed animals), study desks for 8 older and 4 younger students, and standard electrical and USB outlets. As an international, multilingual, and multicultural school; we are excited to share our wealth of information and educational resources with our growing community at Shu Ren.
