Principal's Message



Having a shared history with an established centenarian school, Desheng School is steeped in the culture of striving for excellence and providing exceptional education for the young. Catching the wave of globalization and the increasingly digitised world, Desheng School started the International Education Division in 2001, aiming to meet the needs of students who aspire to enter top universities around the world. With far-sighted policies and quality staffing, the division has achieved much success on many fronts, attaining Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) registration in 2014 and IB World Status in 2015.




As an IB World school, Desheng School (International) or DSI’s mission is to nurture students into future Scholars, Leaders and Global Citizens, who embrace diversity – comfortable in their cultures; yet, respecting of others’. Our core values: Respect, Integrity, Self-Discipline and Excellence (RISE), align with the IB education philosophy. Many different subjects, such as Mathematics, Economics, Business and Music, are offered, catering to students with different talents and needs. We also offer signature programmes like Student Leadership, Model United Nations, Local and Overseas Experiencial Programme, Service Learning, together with other sports, arts and music programmes, which are very popular among students and parents. Currently, we are designing courses like Chinese Law, History and Literature. All this will help to foster international-mindedness.




Starting from 2018, we are honoured to have Dr. Hon Chiew Weng, former principal of Hwa Chong Institution in Singapore, as our education consultant. With Dr. Hon’s experience and expertise, DSI will definitely flourish under his guidance. We also have over 70 quality teachers from 13 different countries, including US, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Nigeria, Mauritius, Kenya, South Africa, and the Philippines, who are experienced in teaching IGCSE, IBDP, AP or A-Level, out of which 8 are certified IB examiners. Quality and diversity are key attributes of the DSI Team.




Over the years, DSI has gained recognition from international counterparts, and established partnership with established schools around the world, such as Hwa Chong Institution in Singapore, University of Toronto in Canada and University of California in the US. Our students have also achieved excellent results and many of them are either studying at, or have received offers from, top universities in the world, such as Oxford University, Imperial College London, University College London, Hong Kong University, Berklee College of Music, Nanyang Technological University, University of Toronto, New York University, and many more.


DSI is committed to holistic development of students. We look forward to welcoming more students to the DSI family.



With regards,
