Community involvement for improved student learning

HIS recognizes that creating partnerships for learning establishes a climate of involvement and interaction between our internal and external communities and our schools.  Research in education will confirm a direct correlation between strong community involvement and improved student learning.  Our strategic plan currently targets the development of partnerships in the areas of learning support, English language, service-learning, athletics and activities extensions, and family-school-community partnerships.

Each quarter, the DragonNews magazine shares news and information regarding our partnerships for learning.  HIS schools currently has partnerships with its parent community through the Parents and Friends Association (PAFA); learning support through the Essential Learning Group; service learning through the Library Project; extra-curricular programs such as Yougo Sports International Academy; family-school-community relations through the Dongxin Community Center; and regional educational and activities organizations such as the East Asian Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS), the Association of Chinese and Mongolian International School (ACAMIS), the China International Schools Sports Association (CISSA), and the Shanghai International Schools Activities Conference (SISAC). 

This month our featured partner is the Pac-12.


Built on a firm foundation of academic excellence and superior athletic performance, the Pac-12 Conference renewed its undisputed claim as the Conference of Champions® in 2017-18. Beyond the courts and fields, the Pac-12’s accomplishments extend into the classrooms across 12 campuses, and outside its traditional geographic footprint into new corners around the world.
