Zhejiang Ningbo Concordia School for Children of Foreign Personnel (ZNCS) originated from the Concordia education system. Thanks to one of the world's most developed and influential private education system, ZNCS naturally has excellent educational beginnings. The campus is located in the prosperous Sanjiangkou area, adjacent to the city's new landmark "Ningbo Tower" , and surrounded by many municipal projects including a high-end commercial mall, residential areas, and an urban central park. The entire campus covers a construction area of 30,000㎡possessing 5 new buildings, 2 basketball courts, a football field, a multi-function theater, and a multi-function playground. It is equipped with extensive first-class facilities to provide students with a safe, natural, healthy and comfortable learning environment.



Ningbo is one of the central cities of the Yangtze River Delta and an important city of “the Belt and Road”. Its influence is increasing both nationally and worldwide, and therefore appeals to more and more professionals who choose to work and live in Ningbo with their families. In order to address the educational needs of these professional’s children, officers from the Ningbo Municipal Government and Education Bureau are dedicated to introducing excellent, international education options. 


During the preparation period, Huang Zhiming (former director of Ningbo Municipal Education Bureau) and Wang Jianping (director of Yinzhou District Education Bureau) discussed the cooperation of running schools with the Concordia University Chicago team. Later, Director Huang Zhiming and Dr. Thomas Jandris, the former vice president of Concordia University Chicago, signed the Memorandum of Understanding of cooperation on Apr 22, 2018. In the following two years, the Concordia Chinese team was invited to visit Concordia University Chicago, Hong Kong International School and Concordia International School Shanghai for further development.



As one of the supporting projects of the “Ningbo 3315 Plan", ZNCS officially settled in Yinzhou, Ningbo in 2020 with the support from the Yinzhou District Education Bureau and other professional teams. ZNCS will bring excellent education resources from the Concordia Education System to the whole city, which will also meet the educational needs of the professionals' children.


ZNCS follows a rigorous, globally focused curriculum and provides essential, traditional Chinese language and culture courses for expat students (including those from Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Macao Special Administrative Region and Taiwan Region of China.) aged from 3 to 18. As a pioneer of Education 4.0, teachers will incorporate the suggested five key pedagogies for innovative teaching, including playful, experiential, computational, embodied, and multiliteracies.




The teaching staff of ZNCS is recruited through a worldwide network. All teachers are native English speakers, including USA, UK, Canada, etc. We eagerly seek more outstanding educators to join our team, to set the standard for high quality international education in Ningbo and beyond!
