Nanchang International School (NCIS) is the first and only international school located in Jiangxi Province of China that uses English as the primary language of instruction. In order to attract more foreign investors to Nanchang City and Jiangxi Province at large, the Nanchang Municipal Education Bureau decided that it was necessary to establish a quality international school for the children of its foreign investors. Thus, NCIS was established in cooperation with Worldwide Education Services (WES) Group, to provide an international education for the children of expatriate, SAR and returnees families.
NCIS opened its doors and accepted its first four students on 1st September 2010. Over the years, Nanchang International School has enrolled hundreds of children of foreign experts, from over 15 countries and regions. These countries and regions include The United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, France, South Africa, India, Turkey, Ireland, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.
NCIS has been approved as an International School by the PRC Ministry of Education. NCIS is an IB world school for the Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP is one element in the International Baccalaureate Organization’s (IBO) international curriculum framework. IBO World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
