International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

Lydia Chaffee

I grew up in the Bay Area of sunny California, with a Caucasian father, Chinese mother, and older brother and sister. As a homeschooling family, we engaged in adventures like camping and backpacking in nature, and crafting, cooking, and reading at home, all of which I still enjoy doing. Sunday worship and mid-week Bible studies have always been a prominent part of my life. I enjoyed four eventful years studying at a Christian university, where I met a cheerful LDi recruiter and eventually applied and accepted the position at YHIS. I am thankful for this new adventure that combines my love for children, music, and Chinese people and culture.
