Guest blog by International School Community | Recently edited and updated by Teaching Nomad There are 8,000+ international schools dispersed throughout the world, and 550+ are in China alone. In countries that have a lot of international schools, like China, you'll find a number of schools that utilize American, British, or international curriculum (e.g. DP, IPC, etc.). In this article, we would like to highlight some pros and cons of working at an international school in China. Using the International School Community website’s database, we found 103 international schools in China that have had comments submitted on them by members.
