Mission Statement:
Kunming Foreign Language School GAC Center Dianchi Campus AIHS Ashton Curriculum Center provides a comprehensive United States high school education to Chinese high school students and strives to give them the best possible preparation in all academic disciplines for university in the US and other English-speaking countries.

Campus Overview:
AIHS AC Curriculum Center at the Dianchi campus use a unique, proprietary three-year curriculum aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for grades 10 to 12 and is specialized to meet the needs of Chinese EFL learners. The curriculum includes all the subjects required to obtain a high school diploma in the U.S., and is designed specifically to build students’ academic foundations in all core subjects so they are linguistically and academically prepared to succeed in all subjects in university. In addition to core content, the curriculum combines language acquisition and proficiency with the competencies and skills required for students to succeed in a western style learning environment.

Location:
The Dianchi campus is located in the far south of Kunming, near the shore of Lake Dian, China’s sixth-largest freshwater lake. The school is located in a residential area on a traditional campus, with courtyards, football fields, basketball courts, and modern classrooms equipped with A/V tools.

Academics:
The primary educational goal of AC programs at the Dianchi campus is to prepare students for academic success in US universities and professional success in the global community. We believe that students must be culturally literate and competent problem-solvers. Our curriculum emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills and cultural literacy within a college preparatory framework. Students’ learning is not limited to formally-defined content and skills, but also includes cultural awareness and personal development so that students can become successful scholars, citizens, and individuals.

Ashton Curriculum Programs (AC Programs):
Students study four major content streams of the standard U.S. curriculum: English Language Arts (ELA), including western and global literature; Social Studies, including U.S. and world history, geography, economics, civics and government; Science including Chemistry, Physics, Earth & Space Science, and Biology; and Mathematics, including intermediate and advanced algebra and geometry, statistics and probability, trigonometry, and calculus. Information technology is integrated within all content areas. The academic framework for these courses comes from the U.S.-based Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a set of comprehensive academic benchmarks designed to ensure that students can properly be prepared for university and workforce life. In addition, students study Chinese language and culture as a foreign language element, as well as electives. Students have the opportunity to study science and mathematics to an advanced level in semesters 5 and 6.

Honors placement and Advanced courses:
In the third and final year of high school, students who have achieved a high level of academic performance, including at least 3.0 GPA, 6.5 IELTS, and 20 ACT, may be placed into Honors track. The Honors track is accelerated study incorporating five university-level (Advanced) courses. The Advanced courses are based on the UExcel? university-credit program (http://www.excelsior.edu/exams/uexcel-home). Students who pass the course exit exam earn advanced university credit according to the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service.

Students who do not place into the Honors track have the option of studying three UExcel? courses and taking the university-credit exams in the final semester of high school.   

Scholarships:
Every year, the school staff visits several rural middle schools around Yunnan to search for talented students who, due to their financial situation, would not otherwise have an opportunity to study at a private international school. Each student’s ability is measured through tests and interviews, and the most outstanding student is selected and offered a position at our school, with free tuition, room, and board. If the student graduates with an above-average academic record, then the school also sponsors them through their college application process and helps with university expenses not covered by financial aid and scholarships.
