Welcome to the website of YingHua International School (YHIS)!
Whether you are a familiar friend or a first-time visitor, I am delighted to offer you this window into our school, the only not-for-profit, independent school in the greater Princeton area that offers a progressive model of inquiry-based learning and dual language immersion in pre-school through 8th grade. We are proud to be the third school in the U.S. that offers International Baccalaureate ® Primary Years Programme with whole-school Chinese immersion.

Founded in 2007, YHIS is on an ambitious journey to prepare the next generation to engage with a world in which multicultural understanding, multilingual fluency, and a global view are absolutely indispensable. We believe that it is best for youngsters to develop in their early years the values, mindset, and skills so to later face a world of rapid flux and massive accelerations with confidence and compassion. Our progressive education provides an extraordinary foundation for learning and development.

These are historic times. YHIS is sowing the seeds for tomorrow's leaders. Please get to know us and join us on this exciting journey!

With warmest regards,

Joy Zhao
Interim Head of School
YingHua International School
Why should parents consider YHIS for their children?
1. Multi-lingual, Multi-cultural Fluency
YHIS is committed to ensuring its graduates are highly proficient in two world languages: English and Chinese. YHIS students in middle school will take on research trips with our sister schools in mainland China and Taiwan. In addition, students will visit schools in Spanish-speaking countries, as our students start learning Spanish in 6th grade. With multi-lingual and multi-cultural fluency, YHIS students are uniquely positioned to make the most out of these life-changing experiences at a young age.
2. A Global View
YHIS offers extraordinary learning opportunities through units of inquiry that are internationally focused, inspired by International Baccalaureate. The diversity of YHIS families also ensures a uniquely rich learning community.
