ETU is a progressive private school that is dedicated to implementing innovative education practices such as Project-Based Learning (PBL), STEAM, and Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS) and the Chinese national curriculum. This educational concept brings Chinese and foreign teachers together for close collaboration and innovation in education. ETU has received strong support from the Chinese Ministry of Education for being a prototype of a future school in implementing project-based learning in lower elementary grades (K-4). At ETU, teachers are supported in their innovations through a teacher-centred school model, which provides them with an expansive network of support and resources internally and from across the world.
