WELCOME TO QSI INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF SHENZHEN
QSI International School of Shenzhen is a non-profit, co-educational day school for students from 2 years of age through Secondary graduation. Our goal that we see reached each year is that students are accepted into international English-speaking universities around the world where students are prepared to begin the next step of their educational careers. The school serves expatriate families living in Shenzhen and the surrounding areas and is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges.
QSI International School of Shenzhen is a premier international school in Shenzhen, having been established in 2000. Our caring faculty is recruited from native-English speaking countries, and staff who hold certifications in their core content areas. We offer a combination of high academic rigor coupled with a performance-based, Mastery Learning approach. This ensures that students receive the attention and personalization needed to achieve success at any level.
As we focus on the whole child, we also introduce and teach Success Orientations (SOs) throughout the classroom and school. SOs include Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Aesthetic Appreciation, Concern for Others, Kindness and Politeness, Independent Endeavor and Group Interaction.
Students engage in an academic schedule including core classes in: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Cultural Studies and Science. We also offer a full range of specialist courses and electives, including Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer Technology and Chinese Language. In additional to our in-school activities and opportunities taking place, we also offer after school activities and sports programs. Our Secondary students have access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, providing a challenging course of study culminating in graduation. Our graduates attend universities worldwide.
We hope you take the time to learn more about our school and organization as you explore the website further. We believe that our unique program offers your child an unparalleled opportunity, and we look forward to you joining our family.

We chose QSI because of the welcoming attitude towards my son and of course the good reputation in Shenzhen. And I’m glad we did. My son started learning English from zero and after 6 months in Qsi he didn’t need the intensive English program anymore. This is thanks to the wonderful teacher team in PLE campus. The most important thing is that he loves going to school every day.

“After some bad experiences elsewhere, we very carefully checked the environment and set-up in QSI. After our son came back from a trial day in QSI Shenzhen, China we were totally convinced. So far we never regret this decision”
Gabriela 13 YO ParentGermany
This is our second year in QSI. My daughter loves to go to school every day,and enjoys learning with fun. We highly appreciate all the nice and professional teachers. The greatest thing about our school is our success orientations, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Kindness, and Politeness, which are crucial for the children’s growth.
Hui 7YO ParentHong Kong
QSI Shenzhen has been an easy transition for my children from the American curriculum they were used to in the US. As a parent I feel QSI is better at incorporating creative, expressive, and active learning. I like to see the kids thinking and learning outside the box. I love coming to see them make presentations. My children really enjoy being able to participate in the the different activity classes that help them explore hobbies that they might not otherwise get to try like 3D printing, STEM challenges, badminton, or Dragon TV. My children are happier here then they’ve been at any other school we’ve been to, abroad or at home. And that is what I love the most.
