Principal’s Welcome


Welcome from our Principal

Dear Students, Families, and Friends of EtonHouse International School, Nanjing:

With great honor and enthusiasm, we open the doors and welcome you for the 2021-2022 school year. Much planning and investment have gone into realizing the vision of our school and preparing for a successful year.

I am thrilled to be the school’s new Principal and be given the opportunity to utilize my nine years of leadership experience in America and China and eighteen years of building learning systems to impact student learning and ensure a nurturing and sustaining culture of collaboration.

Like all staff members at EHNJ, I am driven by our mission, vision, and values and committed to working with our community to shape globally-minded citizens who are purposeful, curious, knowledgeable, lifelong learners. I aim to continue growing and developing our school while ensuring that learners feel safe, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential.

I believe we are strengthened and made more whole by diverse languages, cultures, ideas, perspectives, and ways of knowing represented across our school community. We are proud to embark on a learning journey that fuses our rich history with an innovative future with a diverse school community that cares, supports, and promotes success, personal development, and well-being for all learners. Only when every child is inspired and equipped to succeed does our vision endure.


Arturo Ruelas
