YK Pao School is a pioneering international Chinese school. The school is a non-profit private institution founded in 2007, in memory of shipping magnate Sir Yue-Kong Pao. With over 1500 students from China and overseas, the school offers a unique Year 1-12 educational programme. Pao School's innovative Chinese-English immersion bilingual programme nurtures the whole person - the entire emotional, social, physical, and intellectual being – and prepares students to become engaged and responsible global citizens of the 21st century.
Pao School's SIX:45 is a drama club organized by students and supported by teachers.
At the end of October, the Primary School held its annual book week with the theme "Wild about Reading."
Pao School has an outstanding new university counselling team that will steadily guide the students through the challenging college application process.
Pao School has long attached great importance to the academic development and has also worked hard to ensure that students are emotionally healthy, develop the correct values, and conduct themselves properly, whether in social settings or independently.
When this school was set up by the founders in 2007, it was deliberately and consciously a pioneering school and remains that way. When we talk about "A School for tomorrow's China; Education for tomorrow's world", we are really talking about pathway into the future. We never finish our work on character development, we never completely master the art of leadership, we never fully comprehend what it means to be teaching the best way. It is an ongoing journey.
