We are convinced that first-rate liberal arts education is an indispensable part of a well-rounded, quality arts education. Only through such comprehensive training can they grow to become truly broad-minded, knowledgeable, and socially engaged art leaders. Our School offers an enriched, comprehensive and rigorous curriculum divided into four major parts:
1) Standard academic courses mandated by the Ministry of Education in China: Chinese, Mathematics, English, Political Science, History, Geography, etc.
2) International academic courses: World Literature, English Public Speaking, English Academic Writing, Advanced Placement (AP) classes, foreign language classes
3)Comprehensive elective courses: Chinese Studies, Leadership, Economics, Psychology, STEM，athletic programs, etc.
4) Soft skills, leadership and social-emotional learning courses; elective courses.
In addition to completing their major requirements in one of three of the chosen art fields (i.e. music, acting and film production, and visual arts), students must also successfully complete the required course credits for classes in the first three categories in order to receive their high school diplomas. We believe that our comprehensive curriculum contributes to students’ overall development. These courses help students establish a complete knowledge framework, develop their intellectual acumen, cultivate critical thinking skills and innovative spirits, which in turn provide a solid foundation for their future artistic creation.
We firmly believe that people who study art must also receive first-class general education in Arts and Sciences in order to grow into innovative talents or future artists with broad vision, rich knowledge and active participation in social development. Jade Hill Education has set up a set of Chinese-foreign integration, rich variety and strict curriculum system, including Chinese, mathematics, English, politics, history, geography and other high school courses stipulated by the Ministry of Education; international courses such as world literature, English speech, English writing, AP courses, the third foreign language, etc., and elective courses such as leadership, business, economics, psychology, and various sports activities. We believe that the general education constituted by the above courses is very important for the development of students. They not only give students a complete knowledge framework, but also cultivate their observation, speculation and exploring spirit in various disciplines and fields, laying a solid foundation for their artistic creation.
Jade Hill Education has a lofty ambition. We realize that today’s society does not need artisans who "take a fresh move and eat everywhere". We will never degrade art education into a competition of some artistic skills, but focus on the training of students’ artistic thinking and the cultivation of their artistic creativity. Our art courses include drama performances, film and television production, speech and hosting, art design, studio art, piano, chamber music, vocal music, musicals and other categories, and the establishment of a curriculum grading system to meet the needs of different students, so that junior learners and advanced learners can be the best of their own. Our school’s strong art education resources will ensure that students can show themselves on a broad stage. At the same time, we also attach great importance to the integration of art and other fields of society to ensure that students have the best competitiveness and the greatest choice in school selection and future employment.
