Our Principal

Welcome to Jiaxing Senior High School BC’s 2023-2024 school year. We have an exciting year ahead of us and it is my honour to continue to share this journey with you as we all grow from being strong to becoming stronger, wise to becoming wiser and from being successful to excelling.

You have made a good choice to either join us or stay with us here. We are a school that it is easy to take pride in. We have an excellent record of success in our students, both personally and academically. Our students have always excelled and will always do so in the future. We continue to have a well-developed extra-curricular system leading to many options for leadership and engagement, and our curricular options and organization allow students to showcase their strengths without affecting their core academic needs. We are by any measure a strong school.

Yet schools are like learning itself; the project of improvement is never complete. Yes, we are a strong school, but it is our objective to become even stronger every year. Thus this year everything is expanding, there are more extra-curricular activities, more course options, school programs like speak up are enhanced, more learning supports are available, and individual goals and feedback options are more available. We do not believe in just being good, we, like you as individuals, share the commitment to always strive to be a better version of ourselves.

This constant self-improvement is an integral part of Jiaxing BCOS. Even though we are already a great school, we will always strive to be even better. We expect this in you as parents, students and staff, and we expect this in ourselves. Are you ready to join us this year and see how far we can all grow together?

Our aim is to cultivate in students a broad vision of the world and understanding of multi-culturalism; strong learning skills and attitudes, including collaboration and teamwork; and social awareness and responsibility. Most of our students attend universities in Canada and abroad and our program develops them into successful students who can succeed in a foreign post-secondary setting. We emphasize language proficiency, critical thinking and knowledge in both the Arts and Sciences, which will lay a solid foundation for our students’ future.

We welcome students of Jiaxing and all areas of Zhejiang Province and China to join our B.C. School to develop language skills and learn about Canada, western culture, and the world!
