BASIS International School Shenzhen

BASIS International School Shenzhen


In 2015, our campus in Shenzhen was the first BASIS International School to open its doors in China. Opening with more than 400 students in PreK – grade 10, it has currently grown to more than 1,000 students in PreK – grade 12 and has numerous waitlists. This phenomenal success was recognized as the largest first-year opening of an international school in the history of southern China.

BASIS International School Shenzhen has enjoyed a number of academic and athletic successes in its first four years. More than two dozen students qualified for the World Scholars’ Cup Global Round in the past three years, and several teams have advanced to its Yale University rounds. The AP pass rate surpasses the U.S. national average in more than ten subject areas.

Located in the expat-friendly suburb of Shekou, there are numerous Western restaurants, grocery stores, IMAX movie theaters with current releases in English, and shopping opportunities close to the school. Additionally, the area has easy access by car or ferry to Hong Kong and other Chinese cities, such as Macao, Zhuhai, and Guangzhou.

From the Head of School

Making the right career choice for you and your new school is very important. Recruitment in international schools is not simply about finding the right location: it is about great schools and great teachers finding a mutual passion, a common approach and shared values.

We are committed to recruiting and developing excellent educators, leaders and administrators from around the world to form a dynamic and highly motivated team to become part of a community of learners that has at its core the BASIS International Schools in China values of integrity, responsibility, inclusiveness, respect, caring and courage. These values shape our behavior, inform our decision-making and provide a shared focus for all our actions.

Despite its relatively young age, BASIS International School Shenzhen is already renowned for its academic achievements. Looking ahead we seek to further enrich the quality of our educational experience and broaden the opportunities on offer, providing our graduates with the intellectual rigour and creative problem-solving skills that are required to become a leader in whichever field they desire.
