Partnership with Baishan School

Annie Wright Schools have partnered with the to offer our unique program to high school boys and girls in Qingdao, China. Baishan AWS launched in the fall of 2019 with Grades 9 and 10, adding Grades 11 & 12 in 2020 and 2021, with an eventual enrollment of 160-180 students.

The Partnership

Annie Wright Schools, established in 1884, and Baishan School, the oldest private school in China's Shandong province, have had a close relationship for more than two decades, since an exchange program began in 1996. The philosophical and educational match between the two schools inspired this exciting partnership. In addition to offering parallel curricula, the schools look forward to continuing exchange opportunities and furthering our mission to prepare students for a global society.

THE CURRICULUM

The Grade 9 curriculum will blend English and Chinese, allowing students to prepare for the Zhongkao exam, while simultaneously preparing them for Grades 10-12 in an English-only immersion environment. Baishan AWS plans to offer the same International Baccalaureate Diploma Program curriculum for Grades 11-12 as Annie Wright Schools in Tacoma. The program will also include college counseling to prepare students for matriculation into United States universities.

TRAVEL TO THE UNITED STATES

Prior to attending Baishan AWS, students will have the opportunity to spend three weeks at Annie Wright Schools in Tacoma. This trip will expose them to the school, the Pacific Northwest and American culture, and will offer intensive English in an immersive environment.  Between Grades 11 and 12 students will have a mandatory trip to Tacoma which will focus on preparing students for college testing and will feature a trip to west coast colleges and universities.
