Kunming International Academy’s qualified staff has a wealth of educational and intercultural experience, and is excited about serving the expatriate community in Kunming. About 1/5 of the world’s population lives in this vast country. In 1994, a group of workers in this large international city started a school for their own children. With this school being the only international school in the city, the international business community quickly took advantage of the school, causing good numerical growth. Chinese children are not allowed to attend international schools in China so the students enrolled in the Oasis school in China are dependents of expatriates representing more than 20 nations. The students, however, have become involved in many projects that serve the local Chinese, proving to be a natural “bridge” between the wonderful people of China and the foreign community living there. At Kunming International Academy, in high school (grades 9-12), a greater number of courses and activities are available, including AP courses, Student Government, drama, and various sports. Beyond the required courses, students can select at least two courses they are interested in. To graduate, students are required to fulfill the graduation requirements that prepare them for university study.
