THSI - Chaoyang is affiliated with the International Association of Laboratory Schools as well as the Chaoyang Education Committee and is seeking accreditation through Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC).
High test scores and satisfied faculty testify to the strong academic standards of THSI. The school is already developing a reputation for its professionalism, its dedication to transparency in communication, collaboration with parents.

Each year, the school hosts recruiting visits from approximately 30 representatives from post-secondary institutions.
Currently enrolled are 530 pre-K-12 boarding students, all of whom are Chinese. By fifth grade, students are prepared for English-only instruction.

The teaching staff of 47 includes 31 from North America and the U.K and 16 from China. The diverse faculty includes teachers from Germany, Greece, the Philippines and South Africa.
After school and into the evening, the school describes itself as “alive with student clubs and organizations.” Student Council, Community Service Club, Dance Club, and Tennis Club provide opportunities to develop life skills and practice leadership roles.
