Proud to be one of the first three schools pursuing Safe Passage School Certification 

Hangzhou International School is committed to supporting students, parents, and staff with mobility within and between schools.  We are sensitive to the difficulties faced by our school community during transitions.  We endeavor to support all members of our community to ensure that they arrive, orient, integrate, and depart well.

We are partners with SPAN (Safe Passages Across Networks), FIGT (Families in Global Transition), and Globally Grounded, who guide our organization and procedures relating to transitions.  These organizations create a network between international schools to address the emotional issues and needs of individuals.  People learn best when they are safe and emotional issues extend from within schools to between schools.  As such, Hangzhou International School is one of the first three pilot schools to participate in becoming a certified Safe Passage School.

The key to a good arrival is a good departure, no matter where you go in the world.

For questions regarding transitions and getting involved with a program, please contact Diana Rehfeldt, Andrea Stubbs or Karl Suits  .
