Our Core Values
Education is more than just learning from books and scoring high marks in examinations. Education should enhance people’s ability to make informed choices about life goals and to effectively pursue those goals. Education should also help people achieve a number of other ends that are integral to a good society, such as opportunity to progress, gainful employment, establishing stable families and social inclusion.
An institution providing a good education should provide the space and opportunity for its students to explore their interests, experiment with new ideas and discover their talents as well as collaborate with other people.
Desheng School (International), in short DSI, is one such institution that prepares students holistically.
Scholars, Leaders and Global Citizens
In DSI, we aim to nurture inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who not only embrace the core Chinese philosophy of 修身 ·齐家 ·治国 ·平天下 but demonstrate the following core values:
Respect, Integrity and Self-Discipline（修身 ·齐家）
Respect, Integrity and Self-Discipline are the core tenets of the DSI’s education philosophy. In order to effectively provide the space and opportunity for our staff and students to work or learn independently, they must clearly demonstrate integrity and self-discipline. They must also seek to improve themselves as individuals who can respect themselves and others so that they may collaborate effectively with one another. These values will promote a positive school culture which will help everyone find joy in their learning journey in DSI.
Excellence (治国 ·平天下)
It is our belief and hope that all our DSI students can achieve all-round excellence in their lives, to become outstanding individuals who can contribute to their countries and mankind. By striving to achieve excellence in everything they do, they will truly become Scholars, Leaders and Global Citizens who help to create a better and more peaceful world.
