Welcome SIBS Families:
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
I am pleased and excited to be welcoming you to Springboard International Bilingual School. Having traveled extensively in China and 40 other countries and having worked in the US, Malaysia, and Egypt before returning to China, I can honestly say our school ranks at the top of the list in all ways. At SIBS we believe every child can learn and that all students must be provided a safe and nurturing environment in order to reach his/her full potential.
I see an exciting future for SIBS. The staff is motivated and talented, the students are eager to learn, and the management and owner are dedicated to continual growth and excellence. Success in school is closely related to personal, social, and emotional well-being. Our program allows students to build on their personal strengths and to embrace challenges. At a time when students are establishing their identity and building their self-esteem, we motivate students and help them achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom. It is vital that we prepare our students for life in the global 21st century world. We encourage everyone to model the behavior they expect in others and to celebrate each other's successes in and out of school. Such positive reinforcement will strengthen us because "a rising tide lifts all boats."
We at SIBS appreciate the support and faith the parents and community have shown by placing their children’s education in our hands. It is a charge we do not take lightly. We also appreciate the support and faith of our teachers and support staff, who have chosen to work here. Together we will work to get better and better and continue to make SIBS "the place to be".
Thank you and best wishes.Dr. Ralph Farnsworth
Head of School
