Message From The Head of School

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the new school semester. Seasonal Best Wishes for 2013! I trust that you have all enjoyed a restful winter break, and that your children are enthusiastically ready for an exciting semester of scholastic learning as well as the wide array of our offered sports and afterschool activities.



 We are pleased to announce the appointment of Evan Hunt, from the American School Foundation - Mexico City, as the new High School Principal of SCIS- Honqiao. His appointment will take effect from July 2013.

Mr. Hunt has considerable experience as an international school leader.  He has held senior positions at the American School Foundation - Mexico City, since 2008, during which time he managed the largest division on campus that included more than 900 students and 100 faculty/ staff members. While at ASF he became well trained and knowledgeable regarding the International Baccalaureate programs. Previous positions also included being High School/ Middle School Principal at the American School Durango in Mexico and Athletic Director at Berkshire School in Massachusetts and Indian Mountain School in Connecticut. Mr. Hunt’s professional career spans 14 years working in international and independent schools.  Mr. Hunt began working in education in 1999 as a History Teacher.

Mr. Hunt was born and educated in the United States, gaining his bachelors degree at the University of Minnesota and his Master’s in Educational Leadership from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.  Mr. Hunt currently holds an administrative credential from the state of Massachusetts. He is married with two children ages 5 and 9.

The following statement from Mr. Hunt provides further insight to his approach and educational philosophy:

“Throughout my Domestic and International career, I have been consistently reminded of the uniqueness of the Educational profession.  This profession requires us to be at the top of our game every day.  Teachers and Administrators are always on call when it comes to positively helping young students (regardless of their age) meet their educational goals and in encouraging parental support in meeting these goals.  In an academic setting we cannot allow our individual personalities and biases to interfere with meeting the main goal of preparing our students to thrive in today’s world experience.  We must indeed strive to be role models.  Students may forget the classroom specifics over time but they always remember the outstanding (and not so outstanding) teachers who participated in their development.”


Mr. Hunt and his family plan to travel to Shanghai in July to begin working at SCIS and he looks forward to becoming a positive member of the community.

On behalf of the entire SCIS-HQ community, I wish to extend a very warm welcome to Evan and his family.
