School Profile:
RISE was established in 2007, providing a dynamic American K-12 curriculum based on rigid guidelines, while offering interactive multimedia to students both inside and outside the classroom. They believe that a child’s development should be a dynamic and interactive process. Learning a language is one of the ways through which culture affects a child development - each student not only has the opportunity to study in a fun and immersive English environment, stimulating their interest in learning; the School also focuses on the logic, cultural nuances, and thinking methods behind the language. Their project based learning syllabus emphasises the need to cultivate a child’s leadership skills, including teamwork, presentation, project management, problem solving, and creativity. It is their teaching philosophy to engage and motivate students to learn English through non-traditional ESL methods. With their outstanding learning products for young learners, RISE has become one of the most well-known household names in the English Language learning industry in China.
