Thank you for visiting GTIIT-Affiliated International School, the first international school for expatriate children in Shantou, China. I invite you to explore this site to learn more about our program.

The AIS motto of “In ourselves we believe; the world we will change,” highlights our mission of promoting students’ self-efficacy and academic excellence. Our holistic curriculum honors each child’s contributions, strengths, and potential while fostering their academic, social, and emotional development. At AIS, students engage joyfully as global citizens.

The inaugural cohort of international students joined the Affiliated International School in the fall of 2019. In 2022, we are slated to add a dual immersion bilingual program for Chinese nationals, called the Affiliated Bilingual School. We are grateful for the partnership between the Shantou government, Education Bureau, GTIIT, Shantou University, and ISS-ULink, which has led to the development of our innovative program. The framework for AIS/ABS is unique, as is our location on the GTIIT university campus. I can think of no better place for our children to develop the essential 21st century skills of compassion 仁, integrity 义, wisdom 智, courage 勇, and discipline 洁.

Whether you are currently living in Shantou or are considering relocation, I encourage you to explore our site to see if GTIIT AIS/ABS is the right choice for your family. Learn how we inspire joyful learning while inspiring our students' minds and enriching their hearts.

Warm regards,

Anne Sweet
