At XIS our mission is to inspire and develop confident, knowledgeable students who enjoy lifelong learning, demonstrate global awareness and contribute compassionately to the world around them.
The members of our community gain confidence to take on challenges, to lead, and to positively impact our communities.
Our mission and core values guide and inform our actions, planning, and implementation of our programs at XIS.
By showing care, kindness, and respect in a close-knit learning environment, the members of our community gain confidence to take on challenges, to lead, and to positively impact XIS, Xiamen, and our global communities.
By valuing and embracing diversity in all forms, we become citizens of the world who are prepared to meet the challenges of an ever changing landscape and who contribute to making the world a better place.
When approaching learning holistically, we acknowledge the entire person—the physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and artistic, thereby nurturing balance in life and learning.
By acting with honesty and integrity, both virtues of character, we cultivate a life-long commitment to self-reflection and responsibility.
At the heart of everything we do is learning in ways that promote natural curiosity and enjoyment of learning through authentic, inquiry-based, creative, and project-based learning experiences.
