LOCSS- Lanzhou Oriental Canada Secondary School
LOCSS is the only British Columbia Offshore School in Central China. It is certified by The BC Ministry of Education to offer the BC program from Grade 10 through to Grade 12 Graduation. We also enroll a Foundations Year for students who are almost ready for Grade 10; however, require an extra year of English to promote maximum success. Last June, our first graduation class of 42 students received their BC Graduation Dogwood Certificate. Of our 42 Graduates, 34 are attending the UofA, and UofT, the remainder are attending other Canadian and International Universities. We expect approximately 170 students for 2017 - 2018.
Construction is underway for a new school building for our LOCSS BC Program. The new building will be built on our current school grounds. We are housed within a private Chinese school of 3,000 students (Grade 7 – 12), with excellent facilities.
We are an exciting school creating traditions as we grow in Lanzhou, Gansu, China.
We are located along the famous Silk Road, and the well known Yellow River.
Our school is inspected and annually Certified by BC Ministry of Education Inspectors.
All BC academic courses meet the credit requirements of the BC Graduation Program, and are fully taught in English. The BC Graduation Program is recognized as one of the top educational programs in the world.
All BC academic courses are taught by BC Certified Teachers, living and working full-time at our school in Lanzhou, Gansu, China. We welcome newly graduated student-teachers and teachers with extensive experience.
Our school was established in 2013 and accredited by the Government of British Columbia in 2014. Our high school is a full boarding school operating on a large campus, with western styled classrooms (projectors and whiteboards), labs and special purpose teaching areas, library, cafeteria, and dormitories.
