In 2015, our campus in Shenzhen was the first BASIS International School to open its doors in China. Opening with more than 400 students in Pre-K - Grade 10, it has currently grown to more than 1,000 students in Pre-K - Grade 12 and has numerous waitlists. This phenomenal success was recognized at the time as the largest first-year opening of an international school in the history of southern China. In 2023, the school opened a brand new, purpose-built campus to support our continued growth and development. This new campus includes exceptional teaching facilities including 68 standard classrooms, kindergarten classrooms, an auditorium, black-box theater, cafeteria, library, double decker gym, science labs, music classrooms, and an observatory.
