1) Foundational curriculum: The foundational curriculum is based on the school's educational philosophy and training objectives, which are firmly entrenched in the foundation for students to become outstanding talents. The foundational curriculum consists of four courses which are taught throughout the elementary period, the junior high and the senior high period.

a) The Global Citizenship Training Course: this is a behavior-based course, which is not taught in the classroom, but throughout the whole process of student learning; This “course” aims to cultivate the student's temperament and noble spirit through education on etiquette, expression of oneself, manners, sentiment edification, spiritual and emotional guidance. 

b) The Analytical Thinking Course: The ability to think is the foundation of all our abilities. Through special training, this course enables students to change their thinking from low level receptors to high level participants who continuously ascend from low efficiency to higher and higher efficiency, and from general thinking to innovative thinking, so that students can acquire better learning abilities, so as to achieve lifelong learning and advanced self-development

cThe Transcultural Course (Straddling both Chinese and western culture): This course aims to help students to establish a good cultural awareness and a truly global view. It can make them wise, polite, benevolent, determined, trustful and knowledgeable through the learning of our own outstanding traditional culture as well as, enabling students to learn westernized cultural, values, behaviors and thinking patternsBy simultaneously comparing these two models, they can acquire critical thinking abilities and an enlightened capacity for judgment, which can lay a solid foundation for making them worldly talents on a global stage.

d) The Aesthetics of the Natural World Course: This is a practical course, which integrates the knowledge of the human being and the natural world. This course requires observation ability, writing proficiency, aesthetic appreciation, and lifelong learning skills. Students can learn to appreciate the natural beauty and experience nature’s and life’s brilliance, resilience and persistence through planting, observing, recording, experiencing and being inspired.

The courses include student clubs, such as dancing, singing, drama, chess and specialty classes such as shadow boxing, calligraphy, Kung Fu, etc. Besides these, we also have extension classes in Chinese, higher mathematics, foreign language, and other expansion courses from the national curriculum.

3) The Inquiry Courses: Inquiry courses promote a student’s ability for discovering, researching and creativity. For example, these courses combine with the regional characteristics of Taicang City, and courses which are themed with Zheng He, (The most famous navigator in Ming Dynasty) and the maritime Silk Road.
