In its fourth year, KingLead Rankings evaluate China’s international schools every year. Education experts from prestigious schools are invited to objectively evaluate the integrated competitiveness of selected schools in terms of certification competitiveness, teacher competitiveness, and social influence. The results are considered a ‘golden guide’ for parents nationwide seeking the best international school to send their children to.
This year’s rankings summarise insights from 9 tenured professors and scholars from the world's top universities in Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, Oxford University, Cambridge University, and MIT. These renowned experts assessed all selected schools based on their values, professionalism, and innovation.
KingLead Rankings are very valuable, for the methodology is very professional and innovative. This is China's first ranking system for international schools. It builds the evaluation criteria for international schools. It provides a good reference for Chinese families who want to choose top schools in the United States and the United Kingdom for their children.

Innovation entwines everything we do at AISL Harrow Schools - from teacher development to classroom activities. For example, we have established the AISL Education Research Institute for our teachers to keep abreast of the latest developments in education. Meanwhile, the fact that we prioritize cultivating students' innovative thinking has urged us to establish STEAM programmes and host varied activities such as science and technology weeks. To celebrate Harrow's 450th anniversary, we picked ‘sustainable development’ as the theme. We inspired our students to stretch their creative muscles and develop innovative solutions that may contribute to a better world.
Every AISL Harrow School adheres to the high standards of the 450-year-old Harrow School in England while integrating local cultures, and our students’ future development needs to customize an excellent curriculum that combines academic and cultural essences from both the East and the West and keep up with the pace of the current world. Our prominent international education lays an unparalleled foundation in values, global outlook, knowledge, and networking resources to optimize their future development and the prospect of studying in prestigious schools.
