About BASIS International Schools

The first BASIS International School opened in Shenzhen in 2015, and was the first BASIS Curriculum school outside of the United States. BASIS International School Shenzhen welcomed over 400 students in grades Pre-K - 10 in what was recognized as the largest opening of an international school in the history of southern China. The school now serves students in grades Pre-K - 12. Our second campus, BASIS International School Guangzhou, opened in 2017 and was our first school to offer a week-day boarding program.

BASIS International & Bilingual School Chengdu will open in the fall of 2022. Initially welcoming approximately 500 students in grades Pre-K through 8, it will eventually grow to a capacity of over 1800 students in grades Pre-K through 12. The campus will be our first to house both international and bilingual school programs.

Chengdu is the capitol of Sichuan province--home to famous historic sites, cuisine, and culture. About 1,300 years ago, Li Bai, the greatest poet in the Tang dynasty described Chengdu as a prosperous, peaceful, and beautiful place in one of his famous poems. This certainly remains true today, as Chengdu has consistently been considered as one of the happiest cities in China, and one of the world's 15 Happiest Places by the CNN Travel Channel. 

Our school will be located in a new area of Chengdu, a high-tech area in the southwest of the city. The master-planned location will include plenty of green space, and is convenient to the Chengdu airport as well. Chengdu has the largest hospital in China, easy shopping in neighborhood markets, and also the Chengdu Global Center--the world's largest stand-alone building, approximately the size of 20 Sydney Opera Houses and 8 Beijing Olympic Stadiums.

Our network has continued to grow with BASIS International Schools Park Lane Harbour and Hangzhou opened in 2018, BASIS International School Nanjing in 2019, and our first bilingual school, BASIS Bilingual School Shenzhen, in 2020. We are continuing to expand and grow into new cities and seeking talented educators to grow with us!
