|Teaching approach of the school||
Students are guided by teachers to actively discover their strengths, explore new concepts, develop strong practical and academic skills, and experience their lessons within and outside of the traditional classroom environment. Shu Ren's highly experienced teachers bring a wealth of knowledge, passion, traditions, and practices that inspire children to take part in their own learning. Students are not just high academic achievers, they are active participants in a complex and rich world of international culture and communication; they do not simply copy words, sentences, or memorize passages from books; they ask important questions, perform research, and present their findings in Chinese, English and Spanish. Finally, a Shu Ren International Student is treasured for who they are and is nurtured by teachers who work to help students reach their full potential as a student, an individual, and a citizen of the world.
