International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

I was born and grew up in Sichuan. Then I went to Yantai, in Shandong province for university in 2009, which I consider to be my second hometown. After graduation in 2013, I went to Thailand as a volunteer Chinese teacher in a vocational college. I have dreamed of teaching in an international school like CDIS ever since I was in middle school. I feel so honored and blessed to be a part of CDIS!
