We're excited to announce that with the approval of the Beijing Municipal Education Commission and the Beijing Foreign Affairs Office, Daystar Academy will welcome the first group of (overseas) expat teachers back to Beijing. These faculty members are classroom teachers at Daystar Academy.
The HR Department is currently preparing the visa applications and procedures for their arrival in Beijing.

such as the culmination ceremony when their journey in kindergarten or elementary school comes to an end.
