School Meals

Our sons’ time at Recognise was a gift to their education and one we are seeing amazing results from and will always be grateful for.


I remember feeling that it was a bit of a leap of faith when we moved to the school. In retrospect, we now know it was the best decision we ever made.

I asked my two children to say which of the three international schools they’ve attended they liked best. Both said, Recognise! I added,’What do you like best about Recognise?’. Their reply? ‘Everything!!’


My daughter received the individual attention that she desperately needed. During her one year at Recognise, her confidence and academics soared. My only regret is not moving to Recognise soone


My son graduated from RIA and has just been accepted into New York University. NYU said to me, ‘He’s an amazing young man’. I said,’that’s because of Recognise!’.


At the end of the school day, the children don’t go charging out of the front gate at Recognise, desperate to escape. You have to work hard to pry them away!


The level of my son’s Maths, after just a year, has gone from a very average level for his age to incredibly high. Astonishing progress!


We would love to stay at Recognise forever. We think Recognise is the best thing since sliced bread so we will continue to shout about this fact.


Maybe RIA doesn’t realise how high their level of education actually is. My daughter has just moved on from Recognise to do the IB Diploma. She is far ahead of her classmates in many, many areas


I’m delighted to extend our time here in China, in no small part due to the excellent school environment that RIA has made for the kids. B is progressing well, S too and both love the school. I’m very pleased with the open and constructive communication that takes place.


School Lunches

Our school meals are provided by a well-known local French restaurant named La Maison. They have been feeding our children for over six years. Nearly all of our children opt for school lunches, and amazingly, nearly all of our children will say that our school meals are really good – pretty rare for children and school meals , eh? The reason for this is because of the quality of the food that is offered. La Maison consistently supply tasty, healthy, child-friendly, well-balanced, international food and RIA is very grateful for the work they do. We also all eat together, long table style, making the eating of lunch a sociable and civilised experience. As you can see from the pictures below, La Maison are also very happy for the children to come to the kitchens, to see how their food is made. The restaurant is well worth a visit.

Snacks: Children are welcome to bring extra snacks but we ask that they are kept healthy and nutritious, please. Sweets (candy) and fizzy drinks are not allowed. RIA offers all the children boiled eggs and fruit during morning break-time and usually this is enough to keep young tummies fuelled until lunch.
