Education is a cause which aims to influence life through life. Our school always pays full attention to teachers, holding that “The school is based on the teachers, and the teachers are famous for the school”.We ponder, plan and practice the ecologically cultural management of teachers and the awakening of teachers’ cultural consciousness which are considered as the priority of our cultural power. We have attracted a host of experienced and highly dedicated teachers, including special-grade teachers, provincial and municipal excellent educators, excellent class teachers, the “Double Top Ten”teachers and subject leaders of Suzhou City, etc..
Walking on the path of Bohui education, we always believe that only the brand with genes has its soul. For each class, we continue to pursue the perfection of teaching skills by setting up the “dripping platform”, the “thinking class”, and the “online teaching and research” project where giving and evaluating lectures, and exchanging views with experts is accessible. Our Bohui team is honing skills, accumulating strength and releasing the surging vitality of education. For every individual life, we always maintain a conscientious and prudent attitude, continuing to progress towards quality, and build development platforms. Students are encouraged to get involved in four major campus festivals , National Multilingual Skills Contest for Middle School Students, Around the World Bilingual Forum, Asia-Pacific Young Leaders Convention, teaching seminars on “BOHUI” class, series of winter and summer study tours, etc..
We keep exploring the connotations and extending the scope of education, conducting deeper educational investigations in New Zealand, USA, UK and Israel. We keep constructing the theory of “BOHUI” educational ecosphere, initiating the IB course project, building the Lungeng Children’s Interest and Arts Park, and holding charity activities in Beichuan for eight times altogether.
The spring rain moistens the bright flowers, and the fertile soil produces the brilliant trees. Over the past seven years, CIS has constantly reconstructed itself and developed at full speed, becoming one of the standing council units of the National Association for the Study of Foreign Language Schools, as well as the project base for researching the backbone teachers of the national training programme of the Ministry of Education in Suzhou University. CIS has also won rising fame as one of the characteristic units of the National Youth Artificial Intelligence Activities, and one of the first seed schools of the 2029 Action Plan of China STEM Education, the characteristic school of the National Ecological Civilization Education , and the first pilot schools for STEM projects in Jiangsu Province.
