Thank you for visiting Utahloy International School Guangzhou (UISG) online. As you browse our website, I hope you will catch a glimpse of what makes UISG so unique. Whether you are a prospective parent, student, or international teacher looking for your next position, I invite you to campus for a tour: seeing is believing. Here, I provide three reasons you must visit UISG in person.
Welcome from the Head of School
Families and teachers select UISG as part of a diverse, international learning community that welcomes people from all countries and faiths and who work together to help children achieve their goals. With children and staff from over 50 countries, UISG students are in an ideal environment to become global citizens. Our commitment to each other and our school values – Unique, Inclusive, Successful and Globally Aware – is intentional. While our primary objective is to help our students achieve their goals, at UISG, each community member commits to helping each other succeed.
An inclusive school community offering three IB programmes – Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (DP) – UISG has long been regarded as a leading IB World School in China. Through challenging programmes of international education, we prepare our graduates for entrance to top schools across the globe. The IB programmes, combined with our K to 12 Mother Tongue Language Programme, support the development of children’s mother tongue languages from the early years through graduation, with UISG students achieving DP scores well above the world average and remarkable results in two languages. Approximately three-quarters of our students annually earn bilingual diplomas.
Visitors, current parents, staff, and students frequently comment on the school’s spectacular natural setting. With the campus sprawling along picturesque Golden Lake for nearly a kilometre and surrounded by forested hillsides, it is hard to believe that this inspirational setting is only a 20-minute drive from the centre of a global metropolis. The school is located in suburban Baiyun District and is easily accessible from the city centre and nearby districts. Many of the school’s classrooms and outdoor play spaces have remarkable lakeside views, with some permitting a glimpse of Canton Tower!
Our people, programmes, and settings make the UISG experience unique and inspiring. I invite you for a tour as you consider your child’s, or your, next step on your educational journey. I look forward to welcoming you to UISG and helping you determine if UISG is the right fit for you and your family.
