Small nice bilingual school

4/ 5

Small bilingual school. All students get fluent on Chinese and English at the end of Primary.
Facilities and extracurricular activities are basic, focusing on delivering an international curriculum within and IB framework. You need to organize any extra curricular activity that maybe important for your children and/or you out of the school.
Good atmosphere, children are happy, well integrated, and interacting with all Primary students.
