    End of the Year is an Exciting Time for IB Students

    Rachel, Year 13, Century Park Campus

    The end of the year marks the influx of Christmas-themed goodies all around Shanghai: toffee nut lattes, gingerbread cookies, candy canes, and the likes.

    Shumin, Year 9, Century Park Campus

    Personally, I greatly enjoy the Music Programme at YCIS. Our musical education teaches us to embrace many cultures through learning about different styles and various types of music.
