OUR CANADIAN PROGRAM: Our Canadian Program is a PEI (Prince Edward Island) affiliate school offering a full Canadian curriculum in grades 11 and 12 and EAL courses at the grade 10 level. We currently have 134 Chinese students in 7 classes; 3 grade 10 classes, 2 grade 11 classes and 2 grade 12 classes. We follow a 2 semester year, very similar to a Canadian high school. All students study the PEI curriculum and most, if not all, plan on attending post secondary schools at a Canadian University. Our school has over 6000 students (Gr 1-12) and we are part of the International Department. Other International departments include UK and the USA.


Our students are enthusiastic and committed. Every teacher on our TEAM CANADA, teaching team is experienced and well qualified. Our school is officially inspected each year and we have been successful through this process. Our goal is to hire enthusiastic, adventurous, TEAM players. There will be lots of growth and learning and many rewarding experiences for everyone.

The Canadian Program is built around planning with the Canadian Curriculum and delivering the program in a meaningful way so the the students not only learn the content but they can truly understand and apply their knowledge in a variety of settings. Teachers deliver every program in English instruction, using a variety of instructional strategies and assessment tools. This allows our students  to engage in deep meaningful conversations and thoughts.This methodology, including much collaboration with others, encourages critical thinking, creativity, and innovation, while teaching the students to be independent thinkers. Therefore, students make better connections and deepen their understanding of the world around them and better prepare them for university and the work force in their future.

Positive attitudes towards learning are fostered in our learners and include; exhibiting a sense of wonder and curiosity; • engaging and persevering on tasks and projects; • demonstrating resilience; • exhibiting collaborative behaviours; • valuing the role of each subject in our understanding of the world; • demonstrating respect and sensitivity in maintaining a balance between the needs of humans and the environment; and • being open-minded.

All teachers also emphasize an “Essential Graduation Competencies Curriculum”. This prepares our learners to successfully participate in lifelong learning and life/work transitions. They are cross-curricular in nature and provide opportunities for interdisciplinary learning. The 6 Competencies are Citizenship, Communication, Personal Career Development, Creativity and Innovation, Critical Thinking, and Technological Fluency.

Activities beyond the classroom are highly encouraged and allow students to practice and demonstrate their learning using the English language. Some of our extracurricular activities include Public Speaking Contest, Yearbook, Ultimate Frisbee and The School Musical.

In our Canadian Program we expect all students and staff to ‘Be The Best You Can Be'.
