Vision and Mission

We will be defined as a school of excellence by each of the constituents of our international school community.  We envision…

  • a diverse student population from around the world
  • a system in which every student has equal opportunities for success and for university admission, based on a variety of performance indicators
  • a system meeting the needs of individual learners, rather than making the learner fit the system
  • a system that allows teachers to teach the GLTs (General Learning Targets) in creative and motivating ways
  • students who will be well-rounded, community contributors armed with the academic and personal skills to succeed in the adult world and who see the relevance and purpose in their learning
  • faculty and staff who feel a high degree of purpose, job satisfaction, pride, and personal growth
  • parents who feel informed, valued, and satisfied
  • a strong connection to the Hangzhou community and the perception that HIS represents ‘excellence’
The HIS Mission is to provide international learners with opportunities to pursue academic and personal excellence within a caring community.

Our General Learning Targets (GLTs) embody what we want all students to know and be able to do. Every student will demonstrate:
