The Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS), as an international educational organization with strong influence in Asia, serves both teachers and students, setting rigorous standards for teacher qualifications, curriculum, accreditation, and evaluation. Its member schools are expected to provide high-quality international education with English as the language of instruction. However, meeting these requirements is challenging for most international schools.
Founded in 1999, ACAMIS is a regional association of international schools in Mongolia, the mainland of China, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan region. It was founded initially as a means for students to connect in post-season regional tournaments. Since then, the organization has evolved, adding more sports as wellas other student activities, service-learning grants, and professional development opportunities for staff.
84 Schools Linked Together
ACAMIS closely links its 84 member schools in a number of ways. ACAMIS organised sports tournaments and cultural events. It also supports school staff through professional development programs and networking opportunities.
High Membership Standards
ACAMIS believes that membership should be extended to those schools that it can best serve and that, in return, they can contribute to the ACAMIS community.
Since 2012, ISD has been serving the Dongguan community with high-quality education, providing international education from pre-kindergarten to grade 12. ISD is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), making it one of only 65 WASC-accredited international schools in China. ISD is an authorized IB World School offering IBDP to students. ISD’s excellent quality allows us to take full advantage of the services provided by ACAMIS and contributes to the community.
The Purposes of ACAMIS
– Broaden learning opportunities for students from all ACAMIS member schools in a total program of education, particularly in sports competitions and arts and culture;- Advance the professional development of the staff of the member schools;
– Facilitate communication and cooperative action among member schools;

-Cooperate with other organizations and individuals pursuing similar purposes as ACAMIS.
A primary goal of ACAMIS is to provide opportunities for students at ACAMIS member schools to interact through sports and cultural enrichment events. It covers a wide range of sporting activities including volleyball, basketball, football, badminton, etc. ISD competitive athletic teams play an active role in representing the school in various sports. ISD boys’ and girls’ basketball, football, and volleyball teams have competed very well in ACAMIS tournaments and received numerous awards at competitions of other international schools. Taking advantage of the ACAMIS network, Qilin athletes have the opportunity to compete with students from other international schools, show their skills and sportsmanship, and promote understanding and international friendship.
ISD is committed to the well-rounded development of our students. Through ACAMIS, a comprehensive interschool platform, we foster an international education philosophy that enhances our students’ learning experiences. By interacting and communicating with peers from other international schools, ISD students are inspired to become global citizens with an international outlook.
