Shenyang No.2 High School  established in 1949, is one of the exclusive public high schools in Liaoning province. Its mandate is to provide first class teaching and to graduate top students. Since its founding, it has graduated over 20,000 students with its graduates consistently attending top universities  across China.

 

Shenyang No. 2 High School established its second campus in 2007 at Shenbei New District which houses the Sino-Canadian program and is located thirty five kilometres northeast of downtown Shenyang. This program is jointly managed by York International Group whose headquarters is based in Canada. This program offers a Canadian curriculum that is accredited by the Department of Education in Nova Scotia. 


The program is taught entirely in English by qualified Canadian teachers with recognized degrees from Canadian institutions. All teachers  have 

extensive professional teaching backgrounds and are certified by the Ministry of Education in the  province of Nova Scotia .


As of today, the program has a student enrolment of 263  students . The Ministry of Education in Shenyang restricts its enrollment to only 90 students per intake in Grade 10  so as to maintain the quality of students entering the program. Students entering the program needs to score a minimum grade of 600 in the "hui kao" exam in order to qualify entry into the program. 


 Ninety percent of our students were mostly accepted to universities and colleges in Canada and the remaining ten percent accepted in  universities in the USA, Australia, the UK, and Switzerland.


Over the past three years, Shenyang No. 2 Sino-Canadian program has garnered Canadian recognition as one of the best run offshore programs in China. The school has gained recognition by sending quality, high achieving students to universities and colleges worldwide.


The school is also a  Candidate for WASC  accreditation, which is approved by the Schools Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).


SINO-CANADIAN HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA CURRICULA

A High School Graduation Diploma in Nova Scotia is awarded to students who have successfully completed the required subjects and electives prescribed by the Nova Scotia Department of Education. 


Courses at the grade 10 levels are designed to provide all learners with access to a strong foundation of common educational experiences. These courses engage students in a variety of groupings and interactions as contexts for learning and offer a range of experiences that provide both challenge and support.


To prepare students for a range of post-secondary destinations, grade 11 and grade 12 programs include course offerings that are increasingly specialized; as such these grades are referred to as the specialization years.
