Expanding to the West Coast! Shu Ren and KSS Welcome Green Ivy Silicon Valley
Our Family of Schools is expanding as Green Ivy joins Shu Ren International Schools and KSS Immersion Schools in Silicon Valley.
Shu Ren International Schools, KSS Immersion Schools, and Green Ivy International Schools are joining forces to bring Spanish and Mandarin Immersion Programs to Silicon Valley. Shu Ren Mandarin Preschools and KSS Spanish Preschools can now continue their early childhood education in a dual language immersion elementary school. Green Ivy Silicon Valley offers Spanish or Mandarin Immersion for grades Kindergarten through 8th.
Based on our sister schools, Shu Ren International Schools and Green Ivy International Schools in New York City, both internationally recognized programs, the curriculum development of Green Ivy Silicon Valley follows the International Baccalaureate / Primary Years Programme (IB/PYP) – Program of Inquiry*. Students will be fully immersed in Units of Inquiry that are highly engaging, collaborative, and invite regular opportunities to create and innovate.
Green Ivy International Schools are fully accredited, leading private schools in the heart of Lower Manhattan, founded more than 10 years ago and growing strong. This expansion into the West Coast, provides Bay Area families the opportunity to enjoy an internationally-minded community dedicated to providing an innovative, engaging, multilingual, and multicultural education.
*The path to becoming an authorized International Baccalaureate World School begins when we establish our first year of kindergarten. The authorization process is rigorous and may take up to two years or more, yet with guidance from our partner schools, we are excited to begin this journey.
