Chengdu has a long tradition of encouraging international exchange in the field of education and the city is currently working together with its sister cities in Japan, the UK, France, Australia, etc., to establish educational institutions there.
By the end of 2013, 14 agreements for projects in educational cooperation had been signed with seven countries including the UK, France, the US, Australia and Finland. Currently, the city is promoting educational standards for teachers, increasing salaries, boosting infrastructure and facilities and laying out long-term goals for "internationalizing" Chengdu's education system.
In the meantime, expatriates are increasingly drawn to Chengdu by the growing opportunities of international education for their children. Chengdu has international schools enrolling children of foreign workers. Schools that provide education in line with international standards for expatriate children include Chengdu Meishi International School, Eton House International School, Léman International School and so on.

QSI International School of Chengdu
The mission of Quality Schools International (QSI) is to keep this urge to learn alive in all students. Every QSI school is established to provide, in the English language, a quality education for students. These students are the children of parents of many nationalities who have come to a foreign country, usually for a limited stay of a year or more. Some students may be permanent residents or citizens of the host country.
QSI Chengdu follows a logical model of education which measures success (link to success orientations) by the accomplishments and attitudes of the students. It is believed that all of the students can succeed, that their successes encourage them to continue in a pattern of success, and that it is the school's responsibility to provide the conditions for success.
