At Shenyang International School, we strive to create a positive learning environment for our kindergarten and elementary school students.


The kindergarten program provides initial learning experiences in language development, number concepts, creative skills and social and physical development.  Students receive the building blocks for perceiving, thinking, and problem solving through the use of concrete experiences.The educational experience provided at SYIS is balanced and varied as the child’s world of awareness is extended from the home to the classroom.

General Elementary

The curriculum of the elementary division uses traditional teacher-directed study/learning activities in Humanities, language arts, phonics, science, social studies, Chinese, math, physical education, computer, art, and music.

The curriculum seeks to provide a continuum in each core content area as the basis for the development of perceiving, thinking, and problem-solving skills. The child moves from concrete experiences to increasingly more complex levels of abstraction in critical thinking. Skills related to each area build upon previous learning and measurable performance objectives.
