Our Mission



Baishan AWS's strong community cultivates individual learners to become well-educated, creative, and responsible citizens for a global society. 

As a mission-led institution, Baishan AWS strives to prepare students for academic and personal success through the following key characteristics drawn from the schools' mission statement: 




 
1. BAISHAN AWS CHALLENGES OUR STUDENTS TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. 
Physically, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and academically, we aim to stretch our students. Our rigorous program supports our students in their efforts to reach their potential. We believe that within a nurturing atmosphere, students can feel secure in reaching for the appropriately high expectations set for them by their parents and school. 


2. BAISHAN AWS CONNECTS OUR STUDENTS TO THE WIDER COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD. 
While grounded in Qingdao, we provide our students with a broad perspective on the world. We believe that a thriving community needs an institution of quality, and we aim to play our part in helping to ensure that Qingdao flourishes. At the same time, we believe it is essential that our students understand and appreciate the global society in which they live. 


3. BAISHAN AWS EMBRACES OUR STUDENT-CENTERED MISSION. 
Our student-centered mission is central to every aspect of our schools. At an administrative level, being student-centered means the best interests of our students inform all decisions. In the classroom, being student-centered is concerned with deliberate teaching methodologies. Proactively identifying ourselves as student-centered is important; it is an acknowledgment that we are primarily about the students, not the adults. We greatly value our faculty and staff, as they are the most important resource we have, but our top priority is to develop young people holistically. 


4. BAISHAN AWS HONORS THE RICH CULTURES THAT MAKE CHINA’S HISTORY WHILE SEEKING NEW OPPORTUNITIES OFFERED BY THE GLOBAL SOCIETY 
Annie Wright Schools, established in 1884, and Baishan School, the oldest private school in China's Shandong province, have had a close relationship for more than two decades, since an exchange program began in 1996. The philosophical and educational match between the two schools inspired this partnership. The partnership was founded on the principle that students learn best when connected within a global society. 
 
5. BAISHAN AWS KNOWS OUR STUDENTS AND VALUE THEIR INDIVIDUALITY. 
The education at Baishan AWS is built on the deep, rich relationships that the faculty have with their students. Our small class sizes enable our faculty to get to know each student as an individual. Interacting with adults is an important component of students’ lives at Baishan AWS. We recognize and value the unique characteristics and gifts that each student brings.
