- Shu Ren International School derived its name from the Chinese proverb: "It will take 10 years to grow a tree, but a lifetime to cultivate a person`s potential." Shu Ren is committed to deliver an enriching and engaging environment that focuses on three critical components: Inquiry-based learning, multilingual and multicultural education, and development of the whole child, which we believe are essential to navigate an increasingly complex world.
- Shu Ren International School is proud to carry the designation as an International Baccalaureate World School in Berkeley, CA. We are an early childhood and elementary school in the San Francisco Bay Area offering both a Chinese Mandarin immersion education and the International Baccalaureate (IB) World School`s Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged 3 - 12. This curriculum framework for student learning is an internationally-recognized curriculum used by the top independent schools in almost 150 countries around the world.
- Shu Ren International School integrates the International Baccalaureate education with Mandarin Immersion. Students learn in Mandarin Chinese and English through two-way immersion instruction based on the Montreal model. Our unique program encourages students to "learn how to learn" by participating in structured inquiry with themes of global significance. Teachers engage students in their learning by providing hands-on, engaging, and differentiated learning activities that use inquiry, reflection, and action in every subject including Mandarin Chinese, English, Math, Social Studies, and Sciences. Shu Ren students have distinct advantages by building their critical thinking skills, nurturing their curiosity and their ability to solve complex problems in Mandarin and English.
