Around the world, there are countries that have only one or two international schools and others with hundreds of them.  In countries with multiple international schools, one can find American, British, and the schools that use an international curriculum (e.g. DP, IPC, etc.). The question in prospective teachers minds is: How do each city’s schools compare to each other when considering working in these countries with many international schools?

In this article, we would like to highlight some pros and cons to working at a variety of international schools across China. Using the International School Community website’s database, we found 103 international schools in China that have had comments submitted on them by our members.

Finding out what life really looks like is the key to discovery of the best fit for you in your job search.  You might not consider teaching in China as your first choice, but do not close the door on what could be an excellent job opportunity and amazing cultural experience for you.  China is most likely not at all similar to your home country, so it is important to keep your mind open and learn the most you can about all the ins and outs of living and working in a city in China.

Everybody knows Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong and they are probably the most visited metropolises in
China and this trend will certainly continue that way. However, China is a big nation and home to more than
600 cities and more than 160 of them have populations greater than a million!
Many of these fairly unknown Chinese cities have an incredible and fascinating landscape and atmospheres
built up by their own histories and cultural attractions. Still they are little-visited by foreigners. Why not experience
China in an extraordinary way and visit these unique cities as well?
