Commitment to the Promotion of International
Understanding and a Superior Education

Chengdu Meishi International School (CMIS) is financially supported and was established by the Chengdu Meishi Culture Co., Ltd, an affiliate of the Shenzhen Meishi Group. In 2002, CMIS was approved by the Sichuan Education Department, becoming only one of the few schools in all of China that can enroll both national and international students. It is a grades 1-12 boarding school and day school. The campus of the school is absolutely beautiful and has been equipped with first class facilities. Currently, there are over 2100 students in the school. Meishi is the first international school with a large campus in southwest China.

Academics

Since the school was established, it has made dazzling achievements in academic excellence by stressing quality education and small class sizes and current professional best practice to enhance students’ learning. The school philosophy includes cultural diversity, the integration of Chinese and Western methodologies, and inquiry based education. The school’s objective is admitting students from around the world and educating them to think globally.
CMIS’s International Baccalaureate (IB) World School status and the American Middle States Association (MSA) accreditation attest to Meishi’s genuine standing one of the few schools in China and the world offering all three IB Programs—Primary Years Program (PYP), Middle Years Program (MYP), and Diploma Program (DP). The school is committed to creating a system of values which are innovative, practical, and logical, which has resulted in awards such as the “Chengdu Environmentally Friendly School and Model School” award from the Chengdu Education Department:,.
