Vision & Mission

Vision

Our Thomas Schools are poised to become a global brand, a national first-class high school, and an internationally renowned educational institution.




Mission

With an educational philosophy of STEM/STEAM/Integrated Course curriculum, and with teaching and learning methods from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in the USA, the school cultivates students’ abilities through inquiry-based learning, with a strong focus on research. We believe character development is an essential ingredient in promoting harmonious growth of both knowledge and skills. Students are expected to become outstanding adults fully equipped for life as world citizens in the 21st century – with a deep appreciation of Chinese cultural heritage, a broad international outlook, and the ability to solve future social-economic and technological problems.

Course Features

The Thomas School curriculum is designed within the scope of the basic requirements of the Chinese national curriculum. It includes the STEM/STEAM/Integrated Courses of the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in the USA to create an innovative curriculum that is in line with the Chinese national education policy and educational philosophy.

Program & Courses

The Thomas Schools have adopted the STEM/STEAM/Integrated Course curriculum of the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in America, which is well known and highly recognised by the leading universities in the United States. Within the framework of the Chinese national curriculum’s standards, the Thomas Schools have developed research-based courses as the vehicle for delivering a solid STEM/STEAM/Integrated Course curriculum with an underlying philosophy of interdisciplinary innovation.

City

Shanghai is the financial center of China, as well as its most populous city. This, combined with its history as a foreign hub during the colonial era, makes Shanghai one of the country's most fascinating cities.

Jinan, often referred to as the “City of Springs,” is located 400 km (250 mi) south of Beijing and takes roughly two hours to get to by high-speed railway.

Hefei is the capital city of Anhui Province, located 3 hours by car, northwest of Shanghai. Hefei prides itself as a city where 3 major streams converge as indicated by the character ‘he’ in its name.

Nanjing is the capital city of Jiangsu Province, located 2 hours northwest of Shanghai by high-speed railway. Known as one of the Four Ancient Capitals of China (alongside Beijing, Xi’an, and Luoyang), Nanjing boasts an impressive global reputation.
