We at Guanghua take a student-centered approach and try to engage everyone to the fullest extent. We have designed our curriculum based on the concept that each activity should be student-oriented, and that teachers, playing the role of leaders, helpers, and guardians, should encourage students to be proactive life-long learners. We believe that the students’ successes and failures are also our successes and failures. We encourage every student who possesses an enterprising spirit to join the Guanghua family where each student’s distinctive characteristics will be cherished and respected. We believe that the academic potential of every child will only be inspired through the most appropriate education which encourages proactive learning. With a suitable education system and their own efforts, the students in our College will be able to grow into responsible, truth-seeking and innovative young people who are ready for their future of boundless possibilities.

陈广适 副校长Vice-Principal CHEN Guangshi（Cynthia）
Mrs. Chen graduated from the School of Foreign Languages at East China University of Political Science and Law with a BA in English, and went on to complete her MA in Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
While still a student, she was engaged in a variety of teaching activities and developed a strong passion for education. During her one-year internship at the Learning Resources Center at the University of Pennsylvania she gave a series of academic lectures aimed at assisting overseas students in their struggle to adapt to US universities. In the process she became deeply aware of the academic challenges faced by overseas students, and once she returned to China after graduation she engaged herself in international education. She believes that practical application is an essential part of English teaching, and integrates many of the academic rules found in western universities into her teaching in the hope of getting the young generation of Guanghua students better prepared for the college life in foreign countries.
