Combining the Best of Eastern and Western Cultures
The Western concept of critical thinking, based on fact-finding and logical deduction, and the Chinese notion of philosophical, conceptual thinking are both encouraged. Furthermore, at Yew Wah International School of Rizhao, student character formation and discipline are integrated, fusing the Chinese and Western cultures through the redemptive spirit of service and love. We adopt a guidance approach, a mentor system to guide students in their character formation and strike a careful balance between Eastern and Western value systems. Students master the two world languages (English and Chinese) and gain a deep intercultural awareness and appreciation, becoming globally competent citizens.
