Xiwai

 

Xiwai International School, SISU established its International High School in 2008, and in 2014 became one of the 21 International Curriculum Pilot Schools licensed by the Shanghai Education Bureau. In 2017, our school obtained certification from Cambridge International Examinations to offer IGCSE and A Level courses and certification by the College Board to offer AP courses. This makes Xiwai the first international high school among the 21 approved Shanghai schools to offer both Cambridge and AP programs.

 

Course Introduction

 

Graduates who have completed three years of high school education and passed the High School Graduate Test in Chinese, Politics, History and Geography will attain a dual diploma – one that is recognized in China, and also allows them to go directly to a four-year university abroad.

 

At Xiwai, we currently offer Cambridge courses for students in Grades 9 and 10. These courses are called IGCSE courses (for International General Certificate of Secondary Education). At the end of each course, students take an examination that is marked externally by Cambridge Assessment. Students who pass the exams are awarded a certificate for that subject. These certificates are recognized by high schools and universities around the world. IGCSE courses provide an excellent foundation for further study in many programs, including A Level, AP, and IB.

 

IGCSE courses take 2 years to complete. Students take roughly 8-10 courses, both compulsory and elective, in order to develop overall skills including oral expression, analysis, understanding and application, problem solving ability, self-learning ability, and teamwork.

 

Students who have successfully completed IGCSE courses will have the option of continuing on to A Level study. Courses may be taught over a 2-year-period. Typically, students take between 3-4 A Level courses during the first year (AS or A1) and will be awarded a certificate for AS after passing the exams. Students may choose 3 outstanding AS courses during the second year and will be awarded an A Level certificate after passing each of the exams.

 

We also offer AP courses in Grades 11 and 12. There are two components to every AP course: the course itself, which takes a full year to complete; and the AP exam, which students take in May and which is marked externally by the College Board. By completing an AP course, students are eligible to receive AP credit on their transcripts; by doing well on the AP exam, they can also gain credit from American universities toward their undergraduate GPA and can even graduate from university early.

 

Teaching Characteristics

 

According to their English level, students are divided into Honors, Regular, and ESL (Foundation) classes.

 

Activities & Competitions

 

Students are expected to excel not only in their studies, but also in their character development, leadership and organizational skills, and sense of social responsibility. 

To that end, we carry out various activities as part of our CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) program. These activities provide students with many opportunities to gain early exposure to both the challenges and the benefits of living and studying abroad.

Popular Clubs

The “Dream Building Club” (voted 2016 China Outstanding Middle School Student Club and Best Popular Club), is a public welfare project initiated by students with participation and support from parents and wider society. Every summer holiday since 2014Xiwai International School students have helped schools in remote and underdeveloped areas in Yunnan province. Students are encouraged to use their time to do what they can to help others, such as collecting social donations, building campuses, and providing learning guidance for local children. Since its establishment four years ago, the club has helped eight schools, donated 8 libraries and 16,000 books, and more than 90 students have participated.

Public Welfare Activities

Roots and Shoots, a global environmental awareness organization, has more than 8 years of history. A “Xiwai Forest” project has been carried out for 4 years in Inner Mongolia by Xiwai students to “Protect the Earth and Reduce Desertification”. 

 

The public welfare documentary Dawn is an ongoing film project by G10 students. After obtaining permission from relevant government departments, the students went to the streets of Shanghai at 4:00 am, to focus on those people who rarely get attentions. Every step of producing this documentary, from conception to spotting, casting, shooting, radio, lighting and post-production, expresses our love for socially disadvantaged groups.
