About Greentown Yuhua School (GYS)
CIS Hangzhou is viewed as a flagship programme for both GYS and the city of Hangzhou.
Founded in 1993, GYS is a top private school with an innovative, internationally-minded approach to education. The lush campus occupies 41 acres (250 mu) in the Jiangcun District in western Hangzhou, and has a full range of modern facilities.
GYS promotes holistic, well-rounded education and has developed a wide-ranging curriculum. The school emphasises academic excellence with a focus on science, international understanding, character development and personal responsibility. The school is also very strong in soccer.
GYS has established a variety of short-term exchanges with schools around the world, including The Winsor School (Boston) and Raffles Institution (Singapore). Underlining its commitment to international exchange, every year GYS stages a large-scale multi-day cultural fair, in which GYS and CIS Hangzhou students fully participate, along with students invited from overseas.
CISHZ explored Hangzhou for their House Retreats where they embarked on a few days of community bonding and character building.
