As a teacher who spends most of your time interacting with students, planning lessons, meeting with parents, etc., it can be easy to forget that, with the exception of public schools and not-for-profit organizations, schools are businesses. And like any business, they’d like to keep costs down where they can and this includes teachers’ salaries.

Of course, they have to weigh this against the market rate of a teacher with certain qualifications and experience. This means that there is some grey area around salaries and some room for negotiation. The thought of this can be a little scary for a lot of people, particularly if for people that have never negotiated before.

The United States remains the most popular destination for Chinese students looking to study abroad. In the 2013-2014 school year over 274,000 Chinese students came to the United States to study, accounting for 31% of the entire international student body that year. A large number of these students come from China’s wealthiest and most powerful families—the daughter of President Xi Jinping, for example, studied under an assumed name at Harvard. While the US remains the uncontested number one destination for Chinese students, the U.K. came in second with a total of 58,810 students commencing their studies in the 2013-2014 school year, compared to 57,190 Chinese students in all other European countries.

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.
