SSBS prides itself on the quality and training of its staff. Currently there are: 

About 100 foreign teachers

More than 200 Chinese teachers

An expanding team of 10 AP readers

 

SSBS provides regular professional development opportunities for its faculty and staff. Orientation at the end of each summer before the start of the academic year allows teachers to collaborate and share ideas on curriculum and class activities. Additionally, SSBS supports a mentor/mentee program in which an experienced teacher is matched with every entry-level teacher to provide guidance and instruction on a daily basis. Each semester the school sets up observation sessions in which a head teacher evaluates other teachers by observing their classes and providing written and oral feedback on the instruction. These evaluations help faculty members improve their teaching styles and reinforce good habits. Finally, Star-River provides training courses for faculty members that wish to teach AP courses.
