Our secondary program prepares students for university while fostering character qualities for life.

A warm welcome from our Principal

Welcome to our Wuhan Yangtze Secondary family! We are a diverse community of students and teachers from over 20 countries and territories around the world. Our Secondary program prepares students for university through our accredited, English-based curriculum. We prepare students for life through our emphasis on character traits such as service, persistence, discernment and compassion.

My family and I moved to Wuhan over 20 years ago, and I am one of the co-founders of Wuhan Yangtze International School. My two older children attended this school from ECC to Grade 12 and have gone on to university and careers in the United States. My two younger children are currently high school students at our school. Over the years, I have played various roles at the school, and now I have the privilege of working very closely with our secondary students and teachers. I count it pure joy to see our students grow and mature in knowledge and depth of insight.

Over the years, we have frequently heard from our school families that there is no other school in the world like Wuhan Yangtze. We welcome you to come and experience this extraordinary school.
