Beijing - School Report Question and Answers

Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

No uniforms and gym suits are provided by the school. Laptops are needed in grade 6 and up. Instruments are provided to those in band/orchestra, field trips like WAB Wild and China studies are free but if your high school child is on certain sports teams that travel outside of Beijing, there is a cost associated with that. - Mar 2021

Uniforms are required and separate from school fees. Students must have their own instruments if they participate in private music lessons. - Mar 2019

Field trips range from a few hundred to a thousand. Some are free. - Apr 2018
