School Overview: This is a well-respected Montessori school based in Beijing, providing a very strong academic programme in both its English-Only and Dual-Language Programmes. The school has been in existence for over 28 years. MSB is a member of the American Montessori Society (AMS). The school has been committed to providing the best educational and developmental experience for over 400 children children from early childhood through Grade 6 (18 months - 12 years old), providing students with a strong academic foundation in all subjects, as well as the necessary skills for success. In 2012, the school moved to a new and beautiful campus comprised of two main buildings where you will find art and music studios, children's kitchens, libraries, science lab, gyms and a Coffee Stop; a refreshments area maintained by the school's Parents' Association. A separate multi-purpose hall contains a stage and indoor ball court. Outdoor facilities include two all-weather sports fields, a running track, a sandbox, a basketball court and five playgrounds.

Location Overview: Beijing is a bustling city with more than 13 million people on an area of 16,800 sq. km - the size of Belgium.
