IAB exists as a nurturing school community to provide students a wellrounded, western-style education; inspire them to impact their world; and challenge them to seek truth, justice and mercy as they grow in knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
School Profile 2009-2010
The International Academy of Beijing opened its doors on September 6, 1999 as a school for foreign children in the Northeast suburbs of Beijing, China. Over the next four years the school grew modestly and added up to grade 8. In August 2003, the school moved to a new location and began to grow rapidly (from 70 students in August 2003 to 260 students in August 2008.) IAB's first high school class of ninth grade students was added in August 2006.
In August 2008, IAB expanded to two campuses, with the elementary school at the Lido campus, and the middle and high school students at the Ya Ao campus. We are currently searching for property to build our own school.
Our first high school graduating class of eight students will receive their high school diplomas at the inaugural IAB high school graduation ceremony in June 2010.
