What really makes a great school is seen through the eyes of a student. Their commitment, passion for learning, friendship and respect for fellow students is the true measure. Almost every day I am asked the same question: What makes UISG so special?
UISG is the only international school in Guangzhou to offer the International Baccalaureate continuum education from Kindergarten to Year 12. We value diversity and operate an inclusive learning environment for all students.
UISG is a community of global citizens with over 50 different nationalities and a rich mother tongue programme. The International Baccalaureate Continuum is offered from Kindergarten to year 12 by talented international teachers. We do more than just prepare students for the world’s leading universities, and for external exams; our students are prepared for a journey of lifelong learning and are motivated to make our world a better place. We are truly proud of Utahloy's commitment to the development of internationally-minded students, who will benefit personally from their global connections and help create a better world. Our emphasis on languages and multilingual communication helps to develop global citizens. Languages currently offered in mother tongue include Chinese, Korean, Japanese, French, German and Spanish.
Located on the edge of a beautiful lake, nestled into forested hillsides, UISG is only 20 minutes from the centre of Guangzhou. Most classrooms and outdoor areas overlook the lake, and the School has spacious and attractive grounds, creating a healthy, safe and pleasant environment for students.
The host country language and culture are celebrated and studied in the classroom and through field trips in the region. UISG is well known for its stimulating, supportive, caring environment, where every student is considered a unique and individual learner.
UISG students achieve outstanding IB Diploma results that enable them to enrol in universities all around the world; for example, in the US, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. UISG has over 20-years history and is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC). These organisations provide a seal of quality and assurance.
Please take the time to look at our website and I invite you to visit our beautiful campus on the lake and see for yourself the happiness and engagement in the eyes our students.
