Entering the 21st Century Committed to Global Education

Seeing the rapid growth of China and with the mission of bringing quality international education to China, two moreYCIS were opened in Chongqing and Qingdao in 2002 and 2006 respectively. YCIS Beijing has undergone a major facelift and YCIS Shanghai has revamped its Hongqiao Campus and expanded two new campuses in Pudong. In Hong Kong, Yew Chung International School - Secondary moved into a new purpose-built campus in Kowloon Tong in 2007. Across in the US, another school opened its doors in Silicon Valley in 2002.

Yew Chung has received increasing recognition for being one of the few international schools coming from a non-Western context; intriguing and attracting Western educators. Educators are gradually acknowledging that international does not mean Western and are looking for new models of international education beyond simple national schools in an international context.

As the first Chinese representative to be formally invited to address the Alliance for International Education (AIE) in 2004, Director Dr. Betty Chan impressed educators worldwide with a different perspective of international education––a kind of international education that encompassed different cultural components, and was a shift away from "mono-cultural" and "mono-Western" models.

Two years later, in 2006, the Yew Chung Education Foundation hosted AIE in Shanghai. It was the first time this bi-annual conference was held outside of Europe and hosted by Chinese educational institutions. Yew Chung has been playing a major part in encouraging and promoting international and intercultural understanding, and actively contributing to a worldwide partnership of educating for global citizenship.
