Our Story

MLES opened its first school in Dalian, PR China in 1995 with 14 students registered. This school represented the vision of Mr. Sherman Jen, Founder & CEO, to operate a high quality, externally accredited, international private school in China. The educational system Mr. Jen introduced was a blend of the educational model he had witnessed while living in British Columbia, Canada, with the strengths and cultural richness that exist in the Chinese educational system.

Today MLES operates 56 schools from preschool to high school in 15 cities throughout China, serving over 20,000 students. In 2016 over 7,000 students are registered as British Columbia offshore students in our 8 International High Schools and 3 Foreign Nationals Schools.
