Mr. McCabe visited Beijing, China in December 2014 for 8 days with another WCPSS principal to visit the Beijing Royal School(BRS). BRS is a K-12 private school that works to place their students in prominent universities around the world, particularly in America. All classes are taught in English, as studying English is a requirement for all students. The primary purpose of the visit was to engage in discussion on curriculum development and provide some professional development (PD) in the areas of curriculum development, literacy integration and incorporating critical thinking into lessons. Mr. McCabe enjoyed a variety of authentic Chinese cuisines and had the opportunity to experience some cultural experiences, including a talent show at BRS.
