For Teachers

As a Griggs China teacher, you will be fully supported by experienced administrators in school and from Griggs China. Teachers will also benefit from:

  • The chance to educate unique and exceptional students.
  • Ongoing professional development.
  • An open forum for feedback.
  • Consideration for your mental health and wellbeing.
  • An opportunity to work with and interact with an international cohort of teachers across China.
  • Living and working in a safe, geographically diverse country with an opportunity to travel within China and beyond.

Furthermore, a Griggs China teacher has the key role and flexibility of interpreting, developing, and delivering the programs offered by Griggs. Teachers can create their own program of study, ensuring that the curriculum experienced by students is aligned with the prescribed subject aims, objectives and content, and is adapted to the local context. Effective delivery of the curriculum requires teachers to be reflective practitioners who are critically self-aware of their own teaching and who model the thinking and approaches they expect of their students.

For Students

As a global educational institution, Griggs International Academy strives to provide an educationally sound, values-based education that builds an honourable foundation for citizenship in the global community. The programs and courses offered by Griggs, respond to learner needs in the context of a lifetime learning experience.

GIA serves students in many different countries and provides accredited education that is ethically grounded and infused with values. We participate as consultants and coaches with schools, administrators, teachers, and students to help students become lifelong learners in international settings. GIA is constantly in a growth pattern—making changes that will enhance the program and serve our schools more effectively.

Providing excellent education is our priority in working with our schools. We understand that each school setting has unique situations, and we can devise options that will help create a program that fits students’ needs.
