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.

Staci Pinkerton

I was born in a small town in Roswell, New Mexico but was raised in Oklahoma. When I was a small child and people asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer was always: a teacher. I graduate from Northeastern State University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Education. After I graduated from college, I knew I wanted to live internationally. I have been teaching pre-school aged students for the last 8 years. I began working at CDIS in 2017 and have greatly enjoyed living and working in Chengdu. I am so blessed that both my dreams have become reality.
