Principal’s Welcome Message

Greetings and welcome to Yantai Huasheng International School (YHIS).

I am deeply honored to serve and lead the school as Head Principal. As a student, I spent my formative years in Singapore and New Zealand. I consider myself to be deeply blessed to have been through a wide range of strong international education experience, both as a student and as an educator. As a professional educator, I am grateful to have received much mentorship and leadership training, which has greatly influenced the way I think about education and learning. In his book, “The Courage to Teach”, Parker Palmer opines that we teach who we are.

My experiences have me to believe that every student is gifted and needs an opportunity to develop that unique gift. As such, at YHIS, we support each child to develop their own natural gifts and abilities at an age appropriate level. Our students are exposed to the best of a broad-based international education. We do this by giving our students opportunities, choices and possibilities. Our students interact with professional and passionate foreign and national teachers on a day-to-day basis. Many of our staff have a Masters degree in Education. As a school, we believe in taking the best educational research and putting them into practice in our classrooms. Research has shown clearly that teacher-student relationship has the greatest impact on student learning. As such, our teachers are more than just educators – they are educators, mentors, coaches, counselors and more.

As a proud member of the International Schools Consortium (iSC) China, students of YHIS have multiple opportunities to be part of a larger community. From traveling to key cities in China to participate in sports tournaments, Model United Nations, fine arts festival, student leadership conferences, science fair, and senior departure seminar, etc. Our schools are hubs of excellence and deep learning. We strongly encourage our students to pursue these opportunities during their time at YHIS. Our teachers also collaborate with other schools in our network in order to bring out the best in each student.

We desire to guide our students to become individuals who are passionate about learning and leading. At YHIS, every student is first a leader of self, before they are leaders of others. Leadership runs deep in the culture of YHIS and our parent community. Students are provided with opportunities across a range of platforms to develop and hone their leadership skills. They become individuals of excellence and influence who are deep thinkers and confident communicators.

Students are the hope of the future, and providing them with right attitude, skills and knowledge is crucial to their future success. At YHIS, our key emphasis and commitment is to the student, therefore, we teach them well and then let them lead the way.

If your desire is to pursue a world-class international education, I encourage you to visit us to learn more, and consider joining us in this endeavor.

My staff and I look forward to welcoming you to our YHIS community.

Thank you.
