Welcome and thank you for your interest in Shu Ren International School!

NOTE:  The priority deadline for applications has passed. At this time we are still accepting applications. However, they will be considered for admissions on a space-available basis. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Shu Ren welcomes inquisitive, enthusiastic learners seeking a challenging academic program at any grade. Students are admitted to the school on the basis of developmental readiness, intellectual potential and family motivation. Students with little to no Mandarin exposure or proficiency may be accepted into the pre-primary school, Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Middle School (Grades 6-8). Proficiency in Mandarin (reading/writing/speaking) similar to the level of the current students is required for Grades 2-5.

In all cases, the school retains the right to determine, in its sole discretion, whether or not to select a student for admission or to re-enroll a student.

The head of school and teachers base their decision on various criteria including:
  • Shared philosophy of family & school
  • Family motivation
  • Developmental readiness
  • Maturity
  • Language proficiency 
  • Diversity and gender balance
When the school cannot offer a place to a child, the school will offer advice as to other local alternatives.

When there are more qualified candidates than openings available the school maintains a waiting list from which spaces will be filled according to the criteria stated above.

Shu Ren International School is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education. The School does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial assistance programs, and other School administered programs and activities.
