Entering Wuhan’s Maple Leaf system means being part of a rigorous and engaging academic program attentive to all students, regardless of race, colour or country of origin. Maple Leaf makes a daily effort to promote healthy student development academically, socially, emotionally and physically in a learning environment where students and teachers are treated with dignity and respect.

Academic Curriculum

Maple Leaf Wuhan offers the British Columbia (BC) curriculum from Kindergarten to Grade 9. The BC curriculum is a distinguished educational system in literacy, Mathematics and Science. Maple Leaf Wuhan offers a wide range of courses within these fields. The BC curriculum focuses on developing necessary skills which are essential for future work environments in a global, competitive market. The teaching in a BC school patiently instils fundamental principles and learning processes, while other systems tend to simply analyze end results on standardized tests.Maple Leaf

Wuhan blends a Western BC curriculum with the best of Eastern cultural elements, while following core values of “Respect, Responsibility, Hard-work and Honesty”.

Courses include: Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, the performing arts (including Dance, Drama and Music), Physical and Career Education, Applied Design, Skills and Technology. Non-BC courses also on offer include English as a Second Language (ESL) as well as Mandarin (beginner and advanced level). Both allow non-native language speakers to progress at their own pace and for native language speakers, opportunities to master both written and spoken forms of a language. Students are encouraged to make full use of the Maple Leaf Library and its wide range of English books that cater for all age groups.

The learning doesn’t end indoors. Some Maple Leaf co-curricular activities include: Cooking Club, Calligraphy, Athletics, Construction, Art, Basketball, Hockey, Dance, Student Council, Soccer, Baseball and Cricket.

Students can also look forward to cultural activities and educational trips around Wuhan, allowing them to develop a natural curiosity to engage and interact with the world around them.
