In addition to required courses, we pride ourselves on offering a wide range of electives so our students can choose courses that align with their interests and post-secondary goals.

School community

We have two main teaching buildings, with one building of 50 classrooms used exclusively for the BC and BC preparation program. We also have computer labs, a physics lab, biology/chemistry lab, music room, drama room, dance studio and lecture theatre. Our school also boasts a gymnasium, aquatics centre (which also includes a weight room) and 400-person theatre.

Our Community

Like many small towns, the streets of Luxu are lined with local vendors who are often interested in what the laowei (foreigners) are doing or buying! The town is home to many multinational chains, including Starbucks, McDonalds and KFC, and you can also find sushi, multiple pizza places, Korean food and local restaurants.

The area surrounding Luxu is known for its many lakes, as well as two ancient water towns that attract tourists from all over. Our campus is built on a large lake and park that is great for walks and fishing. The town of Luxu itself is surrounded by lakes and many apartments have wonderful lake views. Although Luxu is relatively small compared to surrounding cities, you can reach the larger centres like Shanghai and Shuzhou in under an hour.
