Beijing City International School’s mission is “to educate and empower students to be compassionate and inspired people, who act for the good of all and for the sustainable development of the world”. This has given rise to the school motto: “Empowering and inspiring through challenge and compassion”. BCIS is a school that focuses on academic excellence and confidence building, while nurturing in students a strong sense of social and environmental responsibility. BCIS celebrates the fact that each student is different, as a person and as a learner, and the company aims to offer a personalized education specifically designed to stimulate the intellectual curiosity of each child. BCIS is a not-for-profit, independent, co-educational day school offering an international curriculum for Nursery to Grade 12 students.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School BCIS is authorized to teach all three IB programmes (Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma) and the school is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). BCIS is also a member of the East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS), the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS), and the International Schools Athletic Conference, Beijing-Tianjin (ISAC). The warm and inclusive nature of the school culture is something BCIS is particularly proud of and work hard to maintain.
