Maple leaf Educational Systems
Maple leaf education systems (MLES)was established in 1995 and represents the vision of Mr.Shenman Jen, Founder & CEO, to operate a high quality, externally accredited, private school in China. The educational system Mr.Jen introduced is a blend of the model he had witnessed while living in BC. Canada , with the strengths and cultural riches that exist in the Chinese system.
MLES is a comprehensive, integrated educational system with over 30schools from pre-school to high school offering both Canadian and Chinese graduation diplomas for grades 10-12. ESL is an important component of our educational system preparing our students in all levels of our school system to meet the challenges of the all-English high school program. MLES has made a commitment to increase the number of hours each week that students study English and to ensure that qualified native speakers teach at least 50% of these classes.
The Government of British Columbia accredited the delivery of the BC graduation program at our fist school in Dalian in 1998. we now offer the BC graduation program in Dalian, Wuhan, Tianjin, Chongqing and Zhenjiang and are planning to expand this offering into our newest schools in Shanghai and Luoyang in 2013. our first Foreign Nationals Schools was accredited to offer the BC grades K-9 program in 2001 and we now offer this program in Dalian and Wuhan.

Our schools, with the exception of the Foreign Nationals Schools,. Operate on the Chinese model as full boarding schools on large campuses each with smaller western style classrooms, labs and special purpose teaching areas, gymnasiums, libraries, cafeterias, dormitories and education. Our space requirement mean that our campuses are often in the newer development zones on the outskirts of major cities.Our schools range in size from over 3000 students to fewer than 300, with our smaller, newer schools projected to go through periods of rapid growth.
Our students are primary PR China nationals. Approximately 7% of our student population is made up of international students from over 20 nationalities. The primary motivation of students in MLES schools is to achieve an internationally recognized high school diploma and qualify for admission to a western university. Since 1999 our graduates have accessed over 350 universities in 20 counties worldwide, primarily in Canada and the USA. At the pre-school, elementary and middle school levels most of our students are beginning English language learners.
MLES currently employs over 300 Canadian teacher and administrators. Over 40 of these are TESL qualified ESL teachers and native speakers of English. ESL teacher are employed to teach students acquiring English language at the beginning levels.
