  American High School

High School (grade 9-12)

The American High School prepares students for further education in the United States (or other major English speaking countries). Here we teach an American curriculum that exceeds standards required by most major universities. A strong emphasis is placed on Chinese language and culture for both domestic and international students. This very individualized curriculum as well as their experience in China will benefit them for a lifetime in their language abilities and cultural understanding. English learners are provided a strong ESL support program to help them transition smoothly into the full curriculum.

College counseling is provided by our Principal. A detailed record is kept on grades, standardized scores, behavioral reports and attendance records for each student. When the student is ready for graduation, this record is then used along with a letter of recommendation and other documents for student's application for further education.


• Honors Diploma – 27-28 Credits
If a student completes all BSRPS requirements, accumulates a minimum 3.50 Grade Point Average, and completes the portfolio requirement, and completes an additional science and social studies, art and humanities elective, he/she will receive an Honors Diploma.

• Advanced Diploma – 25-26 Credits
A student may earn an Advanced Diploma by completing all BSRPS requirements including a portfolio, and maintaining a 3.0 GPA.  An additional science and social studies, arts and humanities elective are required.

• Standard Diploma – 23-24 Credits
If a student completes all of the BSRPS requirements and passes the proficiency tests, he/she will receive a Standard Diploma.



Requirements for Students

Matriculation to the next grade level is based on credits earned, not years in attendance. Students will be reclassified by the eighteenth day of the first semester.

It is strongly recommended that students wishing to attend university in the U.S. take the Pre- Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) in their 10th grade year—probably during the spring or summer vacation.  Additionally, 11th grade students should plan on taking the SAT or ACT during the autumn of their junior year.

For some of our students the TOEFL or TOEIC tests may be required.  Again these tests should be taken early in the junior year.
