Xiamen International School’s governing body is its Board of Directors composed of seven board members, one of which is a parent selected by the community. Under the leadership of Chairperson Yang, the Board sets policies consistent with the school’s mission and purpose and ensures XIS is articulating its long-term vision. The Board ensures fiscal stability of the school through financial oversight and is not involved in the daily operations of the school. The members work diligently to cultivate students to be caring and compassionate global citizens. With a great deal of help and support from the community, the Board works to promote XIS with worldwide recognition.
