The truth behind our Chinese Curriculum

Many Chinese parents believe, that opting for an international school means that their child will excel in all areas of English…and that their Chinese language development as a result, may suffer. At Dulwich, we challenge this perception by offering a Chinese curriculum that is incredibly progressive.

So what can Chinese parents expect from the Dulwich College Shanghai Minhang CHINESE curriculum?

Our Chinese native programme is designed by a team of Chinese education experts and follows the requirements of the IBDP programme. Starting in the Junior School, our programme focuses on developing language acquisition through understanding and interpretation, as well as developing the skills for independent critical thinking. The programme is lively and highly creative. It challenges students to communicate expressively. These skill sets are critical in order to achieve outstanding results in the IB Diploma (A) native pathway examination. Dulwich International students consistently receive top marks in this examination, as a result of the depth of our programme.
