KL International School of Chongqing
The KL International School was founded in 2015 as the second licensed PreK – Year 13 international school for expatriates in Chongqing, China. KLIS is the only private, co-educational, not-for-profit international school in Chongqing. Our mission is to prepare creative, collaborative and curious students who will thrive as educated global citizens, self-sustaining learners and ethical leaders. KLIS believes in being a "Responsive School for a Changing World”.
KLIS educators are bright, adaptive, and responsive to their students. They are culturally aware, understanding that a diverse group of students with unique backgrounds sit in front of them each day. They are patient and caring, taking time to explain concepts to different learning levels and cherish the opportunity to serve as role models. They are explorers of Chongqing and the world – both interested in and dedicated to learning inside and outside of the classroom. Most of all, KLIS educators love students.
As the Academic Principal, you will serve as the academic leader of KLIS, leading a core group of teachers and teaching assistants to instruct a diverse group of international students. With skills in school leadership and excellence in academic program development, the work of the Academic Principal goes beyond the school and extends to serving as a cultural ambassador and example of positive school culture, taking care to understand and collaborate with international colleagues and the community. A successful Principal will easily adapt to new cultures and colleagues, can help to grow a positive school community, grasp the big picture while being detail-oriented, and understand the importance of character and values in education.
This role is suitable for academic leaders looking to join a young school and those who want to contribute to shaping the future of a school.
