About Phoenix City International School:

Phoenix City International School (PCIS) was founded in 2003. The main campus is located within a purpose built housing complex which resembles a town. The large housing complex has some of the largest villas in South China and therefore the school is within a wealthy district of Guangzhou. The school is surrounded by large houses, quiet streets and the entrances to Phoenix City are manned by a security force making the community a safe place to live and work. The school and area have developed at a fast pace and has evolved to the school and community that it is today.

The main campus is currently home to the International Primary School, the Bilingual Primary School, the Bilingual High School and the newly formed International High School. The main language of instruction is Chinese but all schools offer a comprehensive English Language Curriculum. The main campus also has a large sports field, a swimming pool, landscaped gardens, outside learning areas, a canteen, electric bike parks and accommodation for staff and some pupils. The school is located near bus stops which can take you to the Traffic Center, Xingtang and Guangzhou. Aside from the main campus, there are several kindergartens within the surrounding areas that are connected to the school and group.

Over the past few years, the school has embarked on a big change. The school is now an accredited International Baccalaureate School. The IB Program aims to provide children with a holistic approach to education.
