Teachers have begun arriving at Dipont Education’s newest school, Shanghai Huaer Collegiate School Kunshan, ahead of students joining in September.
The team at the school is composed of more than 100 Chinese and international teachers. Each new faculty member has been carefully selected from thousands of applicants.
All are highly educated and experienced in international education, whether here in China or abroad. Teachers come from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds, collectively bringing a wealth of knowledge to this innovative new school.
Throughout August, inductions and training sessions for new staff are taking place, while finishing touches to the school’s environment and teaching program are ongoing. Staff in departments such as operations, finance, HR and IT are also joining the new campus, ensuring vital support systems are put into place ahead of the official opening.
Energy on the campus is high, as staff come together to prepare for a major landmark in the school’s development – the arrival of students in September. With the vision of being a world-class learning community, Huaer Collegiate will integrate the best of international and Chinese education to maximize each student’s potential in life.
Carol Santos, founding head of Huaer Collegiate, said staff have come together at the start of the school’s journey for one common purpose: “the success of hundreds of Chinese scholars.”
Guangyuan Lu, the school’s Chinese principal, added that the school will embrace a “special blend” of Chinese and American languages and culture.
Huaer Collegiate is the third K-12 school to be developed by Dipont in a unique partnership model with local government and a leading Chinese school. It follows the successful opening of Nanwai King’s College School Wuxi and RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou in 2018.
