Words from Principal

  ”Education is to cultivate students’ sound personality, strong physique and excellent character, develop their abilities of self-learning, management and promotion, learn to communicate and cooperate with others, and take personal, community and social responsibilities.” Every educator shoulders the mission of preparing children for the future. In the process of student-centered education, children should always be the driving force and active leaders, while teachers and parents are always supporters, guardians and promoters. “Each child is worthy of respect and careful listening”. Anyone, whether teachers or parents, should be awed by their children’s growth. They should not cross the border and should give children space to explore and grow. Whole- person education is a kind of education with respect as the core, which provides a growing process to help children prepare for the future.
  ”The premise of international education is the mature identification and rational self-confidence of national culture, and the cornerstone of bilingual education is solid mother tongue education”. Bilingual curriculum is not simply a combination of Chinese and Western subjects, but the integration and optimization of these subjects based on multi-cultural and in-depth understanding of whole-person education. International curriculum is a profound exploration rather than a superficial form. The premise of “integration of China and the West” is a full understanding of Chinese and foreign cultures and education. Profound cross-cultural understanding and multi-cultural acceptance contribute to rational self-confidence in national culture and curriculum, as well as fair and objective view on foreign culture and curriculum. “Children learning international bilingual courses need the support of domestic culture and values to develop mature and confident identity.”
  Children’s sunny smiling faces can be seen everywhere in VSP Campus: in the stadium, students sweat to enjoy the happiness of sports; in various classes, students are craving for knowledge and exploration; in the community, students are willing to make their own contribution; children are fearless of risk and are passionate about innovation and pursuing excellence. VSP teachers encourage and care for children, preach them and teach them to shape children’s diversified future. VSP staff with a sincere heart to provide quality service, care for every child, and work with high professionalism and efficiency. VSP parents are loving and always working together to help people get better. As a member of VSP, let’s join hands to create a healthy, friendly and happy campus with a sense of belonging; hold a growth-oriented attitude to learn and forge ahead, set a model for children’s lifelong learning, and create a positive “learning community” atmosphere. “Stimulate unlimited potential”, “guide children to independent road”, VSP will lead them to meet wonderful future with confidence!

“At VSP, we are committed to providing individual and diverse educational opportunities for each child. Teachers and principals treat each student as a unique individual to understand their needs. We will build a close relationship with each child and let them feel safe and cared for within our school. Here, education is student oriented and teaching methods encourage students’ involvement in all kinds of activities. Although there are difficulties and setbacks in the process of learning, students are encouraged to be resilient and overcome challenges, which makes our students more resilient, confident and have a greater sense of responsibility. Our professional academic team will help our students become better and reach their full potential. At the same time, we will also keep close communication with parents, so that parents can be a part of their children’s development.”
“The high school department of VSP is a boarding high school. Our students have a safe, comfortable and rich learning environment to inspire their holistic development. As boarder students can learn to be independent, and experience the happiness living in a university-like community through the different games, activities, etc. that they will enjoy with their fellow students. ”
