About The Affiliated High School of Peking University's Dalton Academy
The Affiliated High School of Peking University's Dalton Academy is a Chinese government public high school that is co-ed and covers grades 10 through 12. About half the students are residential and the rest are day students. It is located in the heart of Beijing's Silicon Valley. Our mission is to deliver a college preparatory curriculum for students who will attend top-quality universities outside of China in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
Our school is unlike any other in China and around the world. Dalton very much resembles a small liberal arts college with classes that simulate college level seminars. Our academic program is bilingual and informed by world-class frameworks, but not bound to any. Many faculty have advanced degrees and we cherish faculty autonomy in the classroom to decide what should be learned.
Class size is relatively small and class-time is comparatively less to encourage meaningful personalization of learning, both in and beyond the classroom setting. We prioritize experiential learning and acquisition of advanced research methodologies. Solving problems and communication feature prominently in our curriculum.
The Dalton Academy empowe...rs and supports our students. We provide opportunities for student-led courses and off-campus internships. We encourage academic excellence, intellectual passion, and an entrepreneurial spirit. We try to instill in our students a sense of public service, a capacity to achieve success, and to make a difference.
As a member of the Dalton faculty you will teach courses of your own design. We encourage faculty research, publication, and continuous professional development to serve as a model for our students to learn the value of intellectual creativity, risk-taking, and contributing to the social good.
