Approach to Learning

At Hangzhou Dipont School of Arts and Science, our mission is to educate young men and women who are well-rounded and ready to make a positive contribution to society.

Inspired by the success of our partner schools, we aim to develop a community where students are exposed to a wealth of experiences, work with teachers and students of diverse backgrounds, and are challenged and supported to excel.

We support each pupil’s development through a foundation of three systems: academic, co-curricular and pastoral.

Hangzhou Dipont School of Arts and Science:
  • Promotes partnerships: our school is a collaborative learning community which partners other schools, values staff, and works with students, families and the local community to promote mutual understanding and development.
  • Extends learning: learning is not confined to books and classrooms. Our students develop through independent learning, from working with others and through participation in activities in the School and the surrounding community.
  • Collaborates: Our integrated curriculum is delivered by a team of Chinese and international teachers who work closely together.
  • Puts the pupil at the centre: Our teachers go beyond subject content and foster the emotional, social and academic development of every child.
