Hyde Academy focuses on excellence in core subjects. Our unique and comprehensive bilingual approach to education has been specifically designed to benefit learners with a range of language levels, and so our admissions decisions are not based on English or Mandarin language ability but rather on a student’s capacity for learning. We are especially proud of our STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) program, which engages students at all grades and levels using a range of hands-on, interactive lessons. Our experienced educators and management team have spent decades in Beijing working with parents, children, and schools, and with this academic knowledge and cultural understanding, we are uniquely qualified to manage an innovative school that blends the best of east and west.
