About the school
Desheng School (International), in short DSI, is a member of Guangdong Shunde Desheng School. DSI is a non-profit-oriented division that aims to provide quality international education at an affordable rate to both international and Chinese students. A firm believer of holistic education, the Chairman of DSI Chen JY donated millions of dollars to help fund this school. He hopes to see his students venture to some of the best universities in the world so that they can become scholars, leaders and global citizens.
DSI has a strong academic team, rated one of the top 10 in China by KingLead. The teacher-student ratio is 1:6, and more than 10 percent of the teachers are certified IB examiners. The school is committed to the holistic development of its students.
