I would like to extend a warm welcome to you from our community here at Fudan International School! At FDIS, we provide a caring environment for your child to grow and learn in grades 1 through 12. Our goal is to bring an international curriculum to our students with an emphasis on our local culture. As a result, when students graduate from FDIS, they are fluent in English and Mandarin. We provide education and support in these languages starting in the first grade, differentiating to account for varying levels and abilities. Students are immersed in an all-English curriculum, culminating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or Advanced Placement (AP) courses in grades 11-12. The rest of our curriculum is based on international standards, and we are accredited though the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Our faculty is highly trained and comes from a variety of countries around the world, ensuring that students receive the attention and support they need. The student to teacher ratio is 5:1. As a result, we have fostered a close-knit community that extends across grade levels. We encourage collaboration and mentoring between the grades, which occurs outside of the classroom through our extensive extracurricular and athletics programs. At FDIS, we believe in a holistic approach to education, leading to well-rounded graduates who are not only academic inquirers, but also critical thinkers, global citizens, and individuals equipped with the necessary skills to lead in the 21st century. While I invite you to peruse our website, the only way to truly understand the uniqueness of the FDIS community is to visit us in person. Please feel free to contact us to set up a meeting with our Admissions Office and take a campus tour. I hope to meet you and your family soon!
