Touting itself as one of the most established and ambitious international schools in Shanghai, Hong Qiao International School (HQIS) has come a long way since it first opened its doors in 1997 to just 18 preschool students. Now a highly respected school, HQIS offers an International Baccalaureate (IB)-authorized Primary Years Program (PYP) to students up to Grade 5.

Hongqiao Rainbow Bridge International School takes a holistic approach to education, instilling in its pupils a love for life-long learning. It’s creative, engaging educational program focuses on developing the academic, social, and emotional capabilities of each child, equipping children with confidence to want to actively take part in planning their future. By middle school, kids have honed their skills in the core STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics), which are taught by linking them to topics and issues of universal and global significance. Middle-school graduates leave HQIS and enter high school as confident, engaging individuals, with established critical thinking and problem solving skills, and a passion to succeed.
