Head of School Welcome


It is a privilege and an honour to warmly welcome you to the International School of Qingdao (ISQ). As a committed and passionate team of educators across pre-kindergarten to grade 12, the staff here at ISQ are dedicated in nurturing, equipping and mentoring young people to be positive, active and influential members of their communities. We believe each young person is uniquely gifted and we are devoted to supporting each of them to discover their talents and fulfil their academic potential.

The teachers and staff at ISQ are focused on modeling and developing 21st century learners who are creative, collaborative, flexible and innovative, who are critical thinkers and who are able to naturally problem solve.  In addition to this, we see the importance of cultivating character and integrity and encouraging students to have a heart for others. Our students are highly motivated and are also supported by committed parents and families, who are key members of our flourishing school community.

The International School of Qingdao offers a wide range of quality educational opportunities both within and beyond the formal timetable. The academic and co-curriculum programs are current, utilize the current technology and respond to emerging trends in education and the marketplace.

As you consider the possibilities with ISQ and explore our website, we hope you sense our love for learning and pursuit of excellence.
