Guilin Sunny School

Guilin Sunny School International Program is the answer for parents looking for something outside of the mainstream Chinese school system. This program combines the best of the Chinese education system with the best of the Western education system. Sunny School is a progressive, well-appointed institution, and is fully committed to the goal of exposing our students to alternative teaching methods geared towards improving their language ability, while also providing the instruction and preparation necessary to score high on the required national exams.

Chinese School Curriculum

In the mornings, students participating in the international program will join the main student body for morning assembly and exercises, then attend classes in Math, Chinese, Physical Education, Art, Music and other classes, taught in Mandarin Chinese.

English International School Program

After lunch, students participating in the International Program will study English, Social Science, Science and Health in an English immersive environment. The afternoon classes will be taught by Western teacher using Western methods and entirely in the English language. Our foreign teachers, currently from Australia and Canada are

The classroom atmosphere is a happy one where self-discipline, individual thinking and creativity are encouraged and cultivated. However, Chinese-speaking assistants help students who need it. Classes are held in comfortable, clean, bright, well appointed classrooms, dedicated to the international program.

The subject curriculums of the International Program combine the best ideas carefully selected from various Western countries, including the US, UK and Australia, creating an effective program designed to help children learn to be not just scholars, but leaders and creative thinkers as well.

We currently have students from the US, UK, Australia, Hong Kong and Holland in the program. Our program is a good choice for the English speaking foreign families, living in Guilin. It is also a good fit for Chinese families, who are looking for an English immersion education for their children, who already speak some English.

Our program is more relaxed than the intensive Chinese curriculum, in which students study during most of their free time. We feel that children need time to play and spend time with family as well as learn in a scholastic environment. Our students, who have participated in the program from Grade 1 though Grade 6 will have the same educational level at the end of Grade 6 as students of the same level in English-speaking countries.

Guilin Sunny School

Guilin Sunny School was founded in September of 1999 and is the first privately owned, bilingual boarding school in Guilin. Sunny School has two campuses. The Preschool, Kindergarten and Elementary school, for children 3 to 12 years of age is located in our Seven Star Campus in the center of Guilin. Our second campus, in beautiful Yanshan Park houses our middle school and high school for youths aged 13 to 18 years of age.


A testimonial by one of our teachers: The work environment at Sunny School is second to none! Not only are the students happy, intelligent, and eager to learn, there is also a very strong community feel among the faculty and staff. This dynamic setting makes going to work everyday fun and easy.

When we moved from Chengdu to Guilin, it was very hard on my 6 yr old son to leave all of his friends. However, he quickly adjusted to his new class and teachers at Guilin Sunny School. They accept him warmly with lots of smiles everyday! The teachers are also very good to communicate with me even though we at foreigners. My son now says he really likes his new school, and I know he will like it even more as time goes on! We chose this school because we wanted our son to continue in the Chinese environment without the pressure and intensity of the local primary school. We are very pleased!
