Utahloy International School Zengcheng (UISZ)

UISZ was established in 2003 and maintains close links with its sister school, UISG, in Guangzhou. The school is built on eighty five hectares of superb botanical gardens, overlooking a beautiful lake. Our facilities include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, football fields and a four storey boarding house with a capacity of 400. Day and boarding students live in harmony with nature in a unique learning environment. UISZ is located two hours from Hong Kong and one and a half hours from Guangzhou, in Southern China.

UISZ strives for academic excellence and the development of the intellectual, artistic, creative, physical and emotional dimensions of each individual student through:

▶ engaging every student as an individual and unique learner

▶ the progressive use of information and communication technology

▶ international mindedness and inter-cultural technology

▶ celebration of artistic performance and engagement in physical pursuits and competitions

▶ respect for, and understanding of, the environment


The Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) provide a framework that supports and enhances student learning and development. Our well-qualified and experienced teachers are recruited from countries all around the world. They bring to the school a global perspective that enhances student learning in a rapidly changing world. 

UISZ has obtained accreditation through the Council of International Schools (CIS), National Centre for School Curriculum and Textbook Development, Ministry of Education (NCCT) and the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) which provide worldwide recognition. UISZ offers a vertical house structure bringing together students of all ages, taking part in artistic, sporting, social and community activities.  

UISZ is dedicated to offering our students a first class international education with an emphasis on academic achievement, intercultural understanding and respect for all.  

Boarding at UISZ

Our boarding school complements the daily programme at UISZ. Dragon House offers 7-Day, 5-Day and flexi-boarding.

Life for students is that of being in a large family with a marvellous array of extra activities, tutorials and help with study and language needs. There is also time to relax and enjoy being a part of a multicultural student community.

At Dragon House we aim to meet the needs of alll our students; educationally, physically, emotionally, culturally and socially. Parents or guardians can be assured that their child is being looked after by a team of dedicated, professional and internationally educated staff. The child's personal development is our ultimate goal. We aim to support the school in developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who will help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The child's safety, security and well-being are our priority. We have carefully planned procedures and policies in place to ensure that parents feel secure in knowing that their children are well protected and supported.
