Tsinghua University High School International-Chaoyang

Tsinghua University High School International (THSI) advances a rich history of educational excellence, together with their sister schools under the Tsinghua University “umbrella.” THSI is an international school offering grades 1-12, for students who plan to attend western universities. In the Primary School (Grades 1-5) THSI offers an American curriculum that includes the very best elements of eastern and western education. Class content is bilingual English and Chinese through 5th grade, and relies increasingly on English as students’ English language skills advance. Instruction is delivered by both Chinese and International teachers. Highly-qualified teachers in the Middle School (Grades 6-8) prepare students for the challenges of the High School program. The High School program (Grades 9-12) utilizes an American Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum. It is college preparatory, and designed for students seeking admission to western universities in North America, Europe, and Australia. A student who successfully completes the program of study will be prepared to do well on the SAT or ACT, and will have an academic record competitive with students from around the world. Except for Chinese classes, the curriculum is delivered exclusively in English beginning in Grade 5.

  1. I wanna say that THSI is not accredited. How did I find it out? My friend in THSI applied to Soka U of A which asked her for an IERF report. She told SUA that THSI teaches American curriculum. SUA embarrassed her by telling her they could not find THSI from the database. I feel sorry for her.

    • Hi Yushi, thanks for your comment. I’m sorry for your friend’s experience, but I’m not sure we can conclude from it that THSI is not accredited. Chinese schools, even international ones, are not accredited by American institutions, and IERF, though respected, is a private company not an accrediting body. We’ll ask THSI if they’d like to comment on this matter.

      • Also the seniors from THSI are unable to apply McGill… I am also very sorry for my friends, because they did so much work but the schools rejected them due to the accreditation status of THSI. Thanks for asking THSI.
