On November 6th 2010, the whole community of Beijing City International School (BCIS) got together for a grand ceremony, celebrating the school抯 fifth anniversary.
Early winter抯 air was a bit chilly on Saturday, but this did not stop hundreds of people from gathering at BCIS to fill the campus with the warmth and happiness of a big family reunion. The whole community shared fond memories of the formative years, celebrated many great achievements, and painted a bright future together.
Students showcased their talents in performances, founding members were sincerely recognized, and everyone enjoyed seeing how much the students have grown at BCIS.
Beijing City International School was founded by the Landgent Group in 2005. BCIS has grown significantly in the past 5 years - from an infant school opening its doors to 89 students and 26 staff, to a fully IB authorized and CIS/WAS accredited school with over 630 students and 173 faculty and staff; from having only elementary students to sending graduates to prestigious universities around the world; and from being a little known school to an international school with a strong reputation in Beijing and throughout China.
The school抯 vision is to be widely respected as an inclusive school offering a model cosmopolitan education and is working hard towards that vision by focusing on a truly rigorous personalized education.
