“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” - Proverb
The International Montessori School of Beijing aspires to be an adaptive, internationally acclaimed educational experience for children from infancy to 17 years blending Montessori and globally recognized academic frameworks to provide students with the essential skills to realize success in university, career and in life.
Caroline Chen, MSB’s founding principal, started teaching in Beijing in 1990 when she set up a Montessori classroom in the Royal Norwegian Embassy for a group of 10 pupils. In this single classroom, the vision of MSB grew out of her desire to create an unique Kindergarten and Elementary school aimed at providing excellent education in the English and Chinese language for Beijing’s international community.
In 1992, she created a Kindergarten at The China World Trade Center, and one year later, established MSB’s Elementary Programme at Beijing Lufthansa Center. For over 10 years, the Beijing Diplomatic Language and Cultural Centre in Sanlitun served as MSB’s central base to the school’s other Kindergarten and Elementary campuses at River Gardens and Beijing Riviera. As MSB students grew in numbers, MSB’s curriculum expanded to offer a choice of an English only based education or a complete full-immersion dual language English-Mandarin Programme. Today, MSB is well respected in the Beijing and international educational community for providing a very strong academic programme in both its English-Only and Dual-Language Programmes.
In 2012, MSB established its new and beautiful campus at Riviera, consolidating all of its campuses on the same grounds. The school now serves over 400 children aged 18 months to 12 years, representing more than 40 nationalities, all receiving the excellent education in English and Chinese language that Caroline envisioned.
MSB is fully registered with the Chinese Ministry of Education Beijing Education Bureau. It has been in existence for over 28 years. MSB is a member of the American Montessori Society (AMS). AMS represents over 1,500 Montessori schools worldwide and affiliates over 100 teacher training programs (all accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE).
