Living in Qingdao
Qingdao is a ‘second-tier’ Chinese city of 8 million people on the coast of the Yellow Sea. The city’s downtown area spreads 30km along the coast, dotted with beaches, all fully accessible by boardwalk. Qingdao hosted the Sailing Regatta during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, as well as regular international and regional sailing events.
QAIS is located less than 1km from the beach, about 5km from downtown, and 30 minutes drive from Laoshan Natural Reserve. Guoxin Stadium, with two Olympic-sized swimming pools, a diving pool, gym, a spinning room, fitness classes, and basketball and volleyball courts is in walking distance from the school, while biking and hiking trails of Fu Shan Mountains are just across the road.
Salary and Benefits
QAIS offers competitive salary and benefits for international teachers, including housing allowance (based on number of dependents), medical insurance, annual flights home, and tuition waivers for up to two children. Salaries are scaled according to education and experience.
In order to support the expansion of Montessori instruction throughout the world, QAIS is now offering Montessori credential tuition reimbursement for newly-hired teachers. For details, please send us an email.
