    First off I would like to thank you for posting about our school, the publicity is much appreciated. We have however changed the name of the school as well as our website; we are now called “The International School of Nanshan Shenzhen” and can be found on the web at http://www.ISNSZ.com. In addition to our certified Canadian curriculum we are now a candidate to become an IB world school. Please find below a quick description of our school.

    “An international school located on Nanguang Road, in the Nanshan District of Shenzhen, P.R. China, the International School of Nanshan Shenzhen (ISNS) (formerly the International School of Sino-Canada) is accredited by the New Brunswick Department of Education in Canada. It offers to its students an internationally recognized Canadian curriculum. On June 12, 2014, ISNS was granted candidate status by the International Baccalaureate Organization for (IB) Primary Years Program/ Middle Years Program / Diploma Program and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

    ISNS was founded in 2002 through the co-operation of the Government of Canada, the Province of New Brunswick and Dr. Francis Pang. ISNS fulfills a local need for international education.
    The school guarantees a low student-teacher ratio, no greater than 15 students per kindergarten and grade 1 class along with one TA, 25 students in grades 2 to 12, assuring that each child’s individual needs can be met. At ISNS it is believed that education must change with the times, for this reason every classroom is equipped with a SmartBoard and has access to class sets of macbooks and ipads to complement interactive teaching methods. The spacious campus includes a large gym, full outdoors track and field, playground and basketball, volleyball and tennis courts.”
