In 2012, Southlands started a partnership with Beijing No.2 Middle School. The partnership created an international department at the Beijing school. It was our first partnership with a school in China. Students who complete the program receive a Chinese diploma as well as an American diploma from Southlands.

About the school
Opened in 1724, Beijing No.2 middle school is one of the most distinguished and renowned schools in Beijing, and its modern campus is located in a historic downtown Hutong. Students and teachers have great access to world class museums, culture and experiences.

In the Classroom
Beijing No. 2 has 19 teachers in the international department, with 14 of those being international teachers. Students can choose from 12 different AP courses. Students can also participate in excellent activities such as: drama, foreign exchange studies, and many excellent clubs. Beijing No. 2 is our only school to offer discrete mathematics after calculus BC.

We are excited to congratulate one senior this spring on early admission to Stanford University, and continue to get notices that this class will follow the footsteps of their older schoolmates at the universities shown below. Not only do our students continually score much higher on their AP tests than the rest of the world, but demonstrate that Southlands and Beijing No. 2 have created a unique environment that prepares them exceptionally well for whatever career they may choose.
