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.

Living in Yantai

You may have heard the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.” We know that for the child to succeed, the whole family needs to be supported. We strive to connect families with community resources to empower the family to self-sufficiency. We live in a generous community with a lot of support. We connect parents to resources for food, clothing, housing, English as a Second Language, Adult Education programs and more. Click to learn more about local Community Resources.

YHIS recognize that how hard it is for families to transition to a new, foreign country. We strive to connect families with necessary community resources to help them adjust. YHIS has gathered useful information about shopping, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, sightseeing, and important places into a small booklet called Yantai City Guide. Many staff and parents have contributed to making the guide. We will continue to update the information on a regular basis. We hope that this serves you well as a guide for your life in Yantai.
