3e is a non-profit organization that is funded through the sponsorship of the Sunwah Foundation and student tuition. All proceeds are invested back into the school in order to continually strengthen our high-quality program and facilities.
At 3e International School we take a visionary approach to dual immersion bilingual education. Our half day English – half day Chinese program provides students with a research based bilingual curriculum, aiming to develop “creative thinkers and collaborative learners who are able to move respectfully and appreciatively across cultures”.
Our goal is to empower children to explore, experiment and express themselves in a nurturing school environment that is balanced appropriately between child-initiated and teacher-directed experiences. Social competence and an appreciation of other cultures are also important components of our curriculum and instruction.
We strive to fulfill our mission by abiding by our philosophy, and we are committed to decisions and actions that emanate from the following principles:All children have the capacity to learn and succeed.Children need to have a positive image of themselves as learners, individuals and community members.Diversity of culture and language is a valuable learning resource for children who will live and work with others in the 21st century.Instruction for the young child must be engaging, meaningful, and useful.The quality and climate of the learning community will be a critical factor in children learning about themselves, others, and their world.All decisions in an effective educational milieu should be made in the best interests of the children participating in the program.

An easy transition from Spain to Beijing, China. After looking many school websites and inquired an acquaintance in Beijing, we decided to visit 3e. We could see they had a very good bilingual system which is important to our daughter as she didn't know any Chinese and English isn't her mother language. 3e bilingual system is great: they give the children the opportunity to learn two languages in a very natural way. After a year our daughter can understand and speak Chinese ( and English) in a way we couldn't imagine. She can communicate with her classmates and follows the classes without any problem. 3e school is like a big family, the ratio teacher- student is very high so the teachers are able to spend the necessary time with each child. we are sure we took the right decision when we chose 3e.
In my opinion, 3e is the number one choice for children to truly become fluently bilingual in English and Chinese. The language acquisition our children have received, in a socially and emotionally supported environment, has allowed our children to become fluently bilingual and fluently bi-literate and smoothly transition academically and socially between Chinese and English environments. The welcoming family atmosphere ensures our children love coming to school each day and assures parents that each child will be given the attention and support needed to achieve their best.
3e International School is like a big family. Teachers treat children as lovingly as parents. The school creates an excellent teaching environment to help children learn easily, plus specially developed teaching materials and teaching methods to enable children to reach the appropriate grade level of their mother tongue. Children feel happy to go to school and happy at school, and we feel honored and proud as parents.
Develops a passion for learning! Back to Beijing after our lovely holiday, the first thing my daughter talked about school is: “ I can’t wait going to school”! 3e really helps her developed a passion for learning and being so much in love with it. Teachers in 3e cultivate students’ interest of reading, and the habit of doing homework independently. The atmosphere in 3e has made learning became a hobby and a habit for my daughter. At the same time, students have more chances to express their thoughts and opinions freely as they have small class sizes. Countless times, I am grateful to my daughter for starting her learning journey at 3e!
3e International School is like a paradise which allows children to enjoy a happy childhood alongside providing a strong bilingual environment where they receive a high-quality education and help them to grow up! My daughter An Qi entered the 3e nursery class at the age of two, and now had risen enter the sixth grade of primary school. She not only has a balanced bilingual ability, but more importantly, physical and mental health and happy growth. This is a direct product of the 3e program, allowing her to embody the "characteristics of 3e students.
