Maintaining a Multicultural Community 

Xi'an Liangjiatan International school is located in the unique Xi'an International Community. The scenery is pleasant and full of life. We are so lucky to be here in the beautiful and energetic XLIS campus which is surrounded by the gorgeous Qinling Mountains and Feng River. The international campus, designed by Chinese, American and Italian designers, is welcoming 700 students and teachers from 32 countries and regions. Xi'an has recorded China's journey up and down for 5,000 years, witnessed establishment of the silk road, and held new hopes for global peace and development. It will also record the laughter of the teachers and students of Liangjiatan International School. Let us tolerate and respect each other, experience different ethnic cultures, understand different ways of life, and create a safe home together. To ensure the personal safety of every student, this year, we have updated the School Access Control System.  We appreciate your understanding and support. Let's maintain harmony together in a diverse international community.

Advocating Gentle and Cultivated Behavior in Relationships


In the context of the information technology era, the level of artificial intelligence has been developing continuously. We have developed from small circle to big society  on the internet. What have we gained? What are we missing? We should review, How can modern science and technology better realize the civilization and progress of human development? How can people get along better?

Xi’an Liangjiatan International School encourages communication between school and family by email, and encourages face-to-face communication between parents, teachers, and students to reach consensus and solve educational problems.  In ancient times, China has been known as a land of propriety and righteousness, Xi’an Liangjiatan International School requires every student, parent and teacher to comply with local laws and regulations, to respect and learn the local culture, carefully read and comply with the XLIS Primary Handbook, Secondary Handbook, Parents Handbook and Staff Handbook. We love China. We love Xi'an. We treat people with sincerity and politeness, pay attention to appearance, elegant behavior, beautiful words and expressions, advocate gentle and cultivated behavior in relationships, promote a more harmonious and orderly society.
