Yew Wah International School of Rizhao is built upon the many decades of experience of Yew Chung Education Foundation. Yew Chung/ Yew Wah, founded in 1932 by Madam Tsang Chor-hang, have been providing high quality education for more than 80 years. Madam Tsang led the school to survive the tumultuous years of World War II and the uncertainties of the post-War era. By implementing the holistic teaching approach, the school began modestly as a small kindergarten, and gradually expanded into a global network of international schools.
In the 1980s and the 1990s, Dr Betty Chan Po-king, CEO and School Supervisor of Yew Chung International Schools (YCIS) and Yew Wah International Education Foundation, and Professor Paul Yip Kwok-wah, Chairman of Hong Kong Yew Wah International Education Foundation, set about to bring international education to China.
YWIS Rizhao, founded in September 2013, is providing Rizhao’s expatriate community with outstanding quality global education across a broad spectrum ranging from early childhood to primary education. We also receive great support from the Rizhao Municipal Government and its Education Bureau.
