Students

Welcome to Maple Leaf

Maple Leaf International Schools all welcome international students, whether into our Chinese program or our BC program, we offer a full range of options.

Maple Leaf’s original mission was to provide a blend of the best of Chinese and North American educational practices, to prepare Chinese students for success in post-secondary studies outside of China. As China’s expansion brought increased numbers of foreign workers, the desire for international academic options, blending North American curriculum with Mandarin language immersion, began to emerge.

Over the last three years I have made great memories at Maple Leaf International School with my lovely friends. It was a challenge to study in China, however through studying in our school I improved my English and Chinese skills and am now going to be attending  my dream university. I am really happy to graduate, and I hope all my friends enter their dream universities as well.
