Why work at Shu Ren International Schools
Shu Ren International Schools are dedicated to attracting, developing, rewarding, and retaining a world-class faculty. Our goal is to create a welcoming culture of inclusion and belonging for our internationally diverse community of teachers, administrators, and staff. We place high priority on advances in compensation, benefits, and work climate.
Inclusion, belonging, and team culture
Our goal is to create a welcoming culture of inclusion and belonging for our internationally-diverse, community of teachers, administrators and staff. We are enriched by the unique cultures and perspectives of our faculty and staff and we work to create opportunities to share our knowledge and experiences with each other. We seek to create an environment in which each member of our community can be their true self.
Professional development for teachers
We hire teachers with a passion for learning who seek to continuously advance their teaching knowledge and skills. We provide our teachers with a vast array of professional development opportunities, including training in the IB PYP model. In addition, teachers receive mentorship and coaching from a variety of school leaders, as well as access to learning sessions that encourage growth and reflection. Teachers benefit from our network of international schools, which also makes it possible to share innovative and proven teaching strategies across multiple learning communities.
We believe our teachers and staff deserve to be compensated well for the dedication, commitment, and care they give our students every day. Part of that is providing great benefits to enhance our employees' well-being and peace of mind. That is why we offer health plans that can cover up to 100% of the employee's health premium (depending on the program), a 401k retirement plan with up to a 4% match, as well as short and long-term disability and life insurance policies at no cost to the employee. To promote mind and body health, take advantage of our Employee Assistance Program and PerkSpot gym discounts!

A shared vision
Our teachers are dedicated to supporting the growth and development of young people with the skills, knowledge, and compassion necessary to face and overcome some of our greatest challenges.
