Intro of China-US High School Dual Diploma Program
US AP Curriculum, jointly sponsored by Chengdu Shishi Middle School and American Wasatch Academy(www.wasatchacademy.org), is the only institute founded with the approval of Sichuan Provincial Department of Education and Chengdu City Bureau of Education. Founded in 1875, the Wasatch Academy ranks the 66th among all the American private high schools. Owning to its attuned teaching quality, the Wasatch is certified by the University Union in Northwest and the American Association of Independent Schools. Our teachers know how to closely observe how your child learns, and then adjust their lessons and methods accordingly. As the result many of its students have been admitted by renowned American universities such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT and so on. Wasatch Academy has already formed partnership with Beijing 11th Middle School and Zhejiang Ruian Middle School, by which more than 20 of its students were accepted during early admission for the fall of 2012 by the Top-50 universities in the United States. In addition to the top and solid education provided by Shishi Middle School, in the first year of our program, we offer many basic American courses such as ESL, chemistry, precalculus, algebra and economic exclusively taught by American Wasatch teachers. The student starts to explore, adapt, assimilate and live by the ideology and system of American education which represents creativity, flexibility, critical thinking and self-motivation. During the second and third year, student is allowed not only to excel in many American subjects such as english, American heritage, mathematics, college writing, culture and research but many AP( Advanced Placement)courses including AP mathematics, AP science ( chemistry) as well. We are the true believer of balancing intellectual and physical pursuits would lead to greater achievement. Real learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom. When a student fulfills a total of 24 credits; 16 from Shishi and 8 from Wasatch, he/she will be conferred with dual diploma: one from Shishi Middle School; another from Wasatch academy. He/She leaves here ready for college, ready for reality, and ready to go even more places, thanks to three rewarding years at Shishi-Wasatch.
