Description: Yew Wah International Education Schools (YWIES) are built upon the many decades of experience of Yew Chung International School in offering quality international education in Hong Kong and mainland China. Founded in 1932, Yew Chung for the past 80 plus years has committed to nurturing students’ ability to face the global issues and challenges of the 21st century. Worldwide recognition has been accorded to the unique curriculum that Yew Chung and Yew Wah have taken much time and effort to establish. Dr Betty Chan Po-king and Professor Paul Yip Kwok-wah have founded the Yew Wah series of schools with a passion to bring international education to mainland Chinese students. Yew Wah International Education Centre was first set up in Shanghai in 1998, and the first YWIES was founded in Yantai in 2000, and Yew Wah continues to extend its education services by starting up Yew Wah International Education Kindergartens and Yew Wah Infant and Toddler Education Centres in Chongqing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Beijing and Rizhao. In 2012, Yew Wah initiated the “BP International Education Park” project in Yizhuang, Beijing where YWIES Beijing is planned to open so on.

YWIES Guangzhou in Huadu and YWIES Shanghai Lingang in Pudong opened in September 2014 and 2015 respectively. The new YWIES campus in Tongxiang is planned to open in 2017.
