A strong team of highly qualified teaching staff is the backbone to YCIS Shanghai’s international education.

The integration of the Eastern and the Western cultures is achieved through the Co-Principals and Co-Teaching models unique to YCIS. Qualified and experienced Western teachers are recruited from the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and North America, etc. Equally qualified Chinese teachers come with extensive experience in education. Overall, over 50% of our teachers have more than five years of teaching experience, more than 18% of our teachers hold a master degree or above, and 16% of our teachers hold additional professional qualifications, e.g. training in Special Needs Education, IB training and IGCSE training.

Whether they are Western or Chinese, our teachers are enthusiastic about teaching, dedicated to the goals of YCIS, and committed to preparing students for the multicultural society of the 21st century.
