      Fangcaodi Primary School (FCD)

      Grades: Grade 1 (Year 2) through Grade 6 (Year 7)
      Tuition: ¥36,000 to ¥58,000

Facilities here are better than many Chinese schools, and tuition is more affordable than almost any other international school in Beijing.
      The school has marginalized English further recently, so you'll want to be certain that any students attending here have a relatively good grasp of written and spoken Chinese. Because it is difficult to get in touch with school administrators, it's advised to visit the school and push and pester until you are offered a chance to apply. Students are primarily Chinese-descent expatriates from overseas who read and speak Chinese.

      Thanks for that info. How long is the waiting list usually for one of the schools? Could I afford to send my son to it and other costs on an English teaching salary? Also do you think I would be best choosing a job close to a school thanks

      Hi Katya, I really don't have the answers sorry. I have heard the waiting lists can be from 4-6 months but for which schools I don't know. I suppose as well it would depend on what Yr your child was going in to. As for wages for English teachers in International schools they are on between 6,000-16,000 RMB per month.
