Beijing 21St Century
Beijing 21st Century International School (originally Beijing 21st Century Experimental School) was established in 1993. It was one of the first Chinese-owned private schools established since the period of reform and opening in the 1980s. The school educates over 1,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Both boarding and day options are available, and the majority of students live on campus during the week. Beijing 21st Century International School was also one of the first schools in China to offer Advanced Placement courses starting in 2009.

Zhang Jieting

Chairman and Principal

With the cool winds of autumn, the fruits of the harvest are soon at hand. It feels like we just graduated a large class of noble scholars, yet here we are again welcoming another group of new “21st century” hopefuls. I am honored to welcome you all here on behalf of all staff and workers of the Beijing 21st Century International School! At the same time, I must thank the SIWA Group for their tremendous support, the Parents & Friends for their trust, and our top-of-the-line teachers for all their efforts that brought us to this new academic school year! Our students have spent a wonderful summer interning and studying abroad. Stepping back once again into your school, you find that the campus has become even more beautiful. We took advantage of the summer break to commence in our 3rd campus restoration project. We have also increased greenery around the campus, so that everywhere you look, you’ll find evidence of the verdant, green vivaciousness. We believe, growing under these beautiful conditions, you will make some wonderful and lasting memories!

Fan ShenWu

Executive Principal

Since our school’s change in name to “International School” there has been a great push in administration to find better partners to enrich our curriculum. Nationally, we have invited the Federation of Beijing’s 11 Schools, and internationally, we have worked with American Fairmont. In this short span of time, we have received high praise from parents to government officials. Our juniors who participated in the American AP exams have a pass rate of over 80%, and many of the graduating JDP students accepted by international schools abroad. With these excellent results, our high school admissions department too has selected accomplished students after a rigorous process. So students, for us all to be able to gathered here, it proves that you are each amazing, unique individuals. We will use only the best teaching methodology, in return for your parents trust, to color your fantastic futures!

Students, 21st Century is not only a school, it will become your happy place asyou grow. Here, every person’s mind will be filled daily and individual characteristics carefully nurtured. We hope that every student will remember the mission of the school, “to become honorable, talented, successful, and international proud Chinese.” Open your hearts to love, your minds to wisdom, yourself to grace, so that you may take on the great responsibility of becoming an inter-cultural and international pillar of the next generation!

A school motto cannot just be yelled out, nor can an alma mater just be sung out. We require you, the students, to fulfill them step by step, creating a new reality with your imaginations. In this new semester, take on new challenges. Students, we the staff and teachers will accompany you to create even greater heights!
