Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

At The International Montessori School of Beijing, every child is perceived and treated as an individual. MSB realises that every child is different, and fortunately, its Montessori-based curriculum enables its educators to tailor each lesson to the specific needs and interests of each pupil. For that reason, all children are always engaged and challenged.

Teaching approach of the school

MSB’s curriculum expanded to offer a choice of an English only based education or a complete full-immersion dual language English-Mandarin Programme.

MSB offers students Montessori-based learning, taking the best of what Montessori has to offer and coupling it with the needs of a child living in an international environment in Beijing. MSB's teaching style draws from the traditional principles outlined by Dr. Maria Montessori, but presents them in an updated framework relevant to today’s children. As a result, our children grow to become respectful and confident individuals, capable of independent learning and critical thinking.
