This expo is the most all-encompassing and largest-scale education event of its kind, that not only brings together an incomparable number of attending schools, but also a large, diverse number of attendees from Beijing’s local and expat parenting community.
In order to shield parents from the overwhelming anxiety that comes along with picking a school, this expo will be a comprehensive educationally focused event seeking to inform in addition to providing a superb venue for schools to show off their fabulous curriculums and facilities. After all, education is not just about school choice. Scan or long-press the QR code above for ticket information.
The History and Development of JISE
JISE, formerly known as the beijingkids International School Choice Expo, is an annual fair focusing on the latest and greatest in education. We strive to not only give insight into school choice but also the rapidly developing educational landscape as a whole. The international education community and a growing number of schools are placing parents into a growing state of anxiety about choosing the right school, allowing for some to blindly give priority to a prestigious school over the necessary long-term educational goals. This year’s JISE is themed “Education Beyond School Choice,” for exactly this purpose of helping parents to ease their short-sighted anxiety and perform a more comprehensive probe into education through the great communication opportunities and learning experiences this expo is designed to present.
Jingkids International School Expo (JISE) 2019
JISE 2019 will have over 100 schools to choose from, spanning both the K-12 and preschool categories, ready to answer all of your questions about what’s new or more importantly, what’s next!
