With more and more expatriates of foreign-invested enterprises bringing along their families to Suzhou in the past decade and more, the issue of education of their children has become a primary concern, and it is in such background that a series of international schools have come into being, which offer the children of expatriates internationalized education from kindergarten to primary and middle school, and college foundation course.
Suzhou Singapore International School has over the years successfully provided an ideal education environment for expatriate children so that their parents can work with ease of mind. The exchange and communication with the local communities in a multicultural atmosphere also contributed to the success of the education mode.
The enrollment has been steadily expanded in recent years in most such international schools offering consistent education from kindergarten (from 3-year-olds) up to senior high and college foundation course (18-year-olds). Expatriates have all shown satisfaction over the quality of international education in Suzhou. It is the aim of Suzhou to build up the most competitive international education zone in China.
