Recognize International Academy, established in 2009, is an international school in Shekou, Shenzhen, China. RIA believes that a higher quality educational experience can be achieved through keeping a school community small. We believe that a small-scale approach facilitates higher academic standards, improved personal development and that the special talents of each of our students can be more fully discovered and nurtured. Through keeping class sizes small and through limiting the school’s total enrolment, we assert that teachers, staff and parents can more effectively work together to meet the unique needs of every child.
RIA has a genuine international environment with over 30 nationalities represented within our total enrolment. Our core curriculum is derived from the National Curriculum of the UK and we adapt aspects of this curriculum to suit our international setting. Our students range in age from 5 – 16 years old (Years 1-11). We have a proven track record of making outstanding academic progress with the children in our care. We believe that our school values enhance personal well-being and encourage great enthusiasm for learning and for life.
RIA believes that each child deserves individual respect and a chance to develop in a caring environment. We believe that children can best achieve their full potential by working happily and creatively with others. Children attend Recognize International Academy on a full time basis, although some may attend part time.
