Beijing Royal School Admission
Beijing Royal School, awarded AP Teaching Demonstration School by the College Board, provides a comprehensive k-12 curriculum designed to cultivate talents to complete on a global level
We believe that every student has unique advantages and, during the school admission process, look not only at scores but focus on the individual’s overall performance and abilities. We will arrange an entrance examination for students, but use the scores as a reference tool only. The entrance examination includes English and Mathematics testing. After testing, we will arrange an interview that includes assessing the students’ and independent thinking and oral English ability. We are happy to arrange international course presentations and entrance examinations from March throughout the school year.
Our school accepts age-appropriate students from various provinces and cities. We also accept Non-Beijing Residential students.
We accept transfer students and are happy to schedule a testing time with an admissions consultant.
We believe we have the best facilities and teachers in the international school area and believe our tuition fee is not too expensive; but reflects our commitment to maintaining a very high performance-driven staff.

AP courses, A-level Course, IGCSE course and GAC course.
AP Course: Beijing Royal School became an AP accredited school in 2006 and we offer 22 AP courses.
A-Level and IGCSE Course: As of 2003, Beijing Royal School has offered A-Level classes and IGCSE classes by Cambridge International Examinations Committee. Beijing Royal School is also Beijing’s first international education test center for the University of Cambridge.
GAC Course: GAC (Global Assessment Certificate) is the world’s most widely accepted college preparatory course. It helps students to attain academic knowledge, independent learning skills and English language skills. GAC is helpful for students who plan to attend a good university and makes it easier for students to complete a bachelor degree program.
We endorse two teaching styles: Stratification Teaching and level-based teaching.
Stratification teaching involves the teacher and students working together to cultivate individual and different learning styles. Teachers can evaluate the student’s knowledge reserve and learning skill potential through an appeal to students’ unique interests..
Level-based teaching anchors subject-based teaching methodology to enhance students’ learning interests in order to help students discover future career direction, and develop students’ ability to communicate clearly and cooperate with others.
At Beijing Royal 40% of our teachers are foreign teachers and our school is based on the principle of the “Stratification Teaching and Level-based teaching”. Foreign-speaking is incorporated into the lessons according to the students’ English level.

Graduates from our school typically attend the Top universities, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Colombia at Dartmouth College, Direction of British Cambridge, Imperial Warwick University College London, University of Simon Fraser Waterloo, University of Toronto, UBC, University of Sydney etc.

Non-Beijing residential students do not need to take the Chinese graduation examination, and can receive a high school diploma from Beijing Royal School.
