Suzhou Eton House International School
Suzhou EtonHouse International School is located in the New District
area of Suzhou City. It is a joint venture between
EtonHouse Schools in Singapore (where they run six schools) and
a Chinese partner. It was decided to start a new school
in Suzhou as there is a growing expatriate presence in the city
and therefore an opportunity existed to start a new
school in a rapidly expanding sector.
