Nothing compares with seeing a school in action and observing its learning culture up close. However, we realize that personal visits to Suzhou aren't always practical or possible. If you can't visit SSIS before applying, we hope this site gives you an introduction to our school. Please feel free to contact the Admissions Office with any unanswered questions.
If you do visit Suzhou while considering work and schools for your child, a tour can be arranged through the Admissions Office. To schedule an appointment, please contact us by phone, +86 (0) 512 6258 8614, or email, firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the schedule a tour form. During school time we can arrange an appointment between 8.30 am and 4.00 pm Monday to Friday. The Admissions Office is also open during most school holidays, please contact us for available times.
Complete the Application form and return to the Admissions Office along with the required information (such as academic records and copies of passport). A member of the Admissions Office will contact you within three working days to confirm receipt. Apply now
The placement assessment determines a student’s English language level. (Students applying for Pre-Nursery to Kindergarten attend a classroom setting so we can observe the child’s social and emotional development.)
Once the application form and supporting documentation has been received a date for the placement assessment is set. The placement assessment is usually held once the family arrives in Suzhou as there is an interview component of the assessment. (These assessments are normally held each week on a Tuesday morning during the school year.)
All students applying for SSIS are required to attend a placement assessment, except native English speakers applying for Grade 1 – Grade 5.
