School Overview: This is a pioneering international Chinese school founded in 2007. With over 1200 students from China and overseas, the school offers a unique KG - 18rs educational programme that integrates elements of Shanghai and international curricula, culminating in Years 9-12 with the IGCSE and IB Diploma programmes, both of which are complemented by core components of the Shanghai curriculum. The school's innovative Chinese-English immersion bilingual programme nurtures the whole person - the entire emotional, social, physical, and intellectual being - and prepares students to become engaged and responsible global citizens of the 21st century. The school is divided into three campuses; Primary, Middle and High School. The Primary and Middle Schools are located in Shanghai's city centre, while the Secondary School is located in Shanghai's Songjiang District and offers boarding as well as catering to day students.

Location Overview: From the futuristic skyline of Pudong to the traditional pavilions in the sprawling Yu Gardens, China's most westernised city is a thriving metropolis with a close-knit expatriate community. Its unique architectural heritage includes the world's second-tallest tower and classical art deco buildings. Located in the Yangtze River delta, the city offers burgeoning culinary and vibrant music scenes. Culturally diverse and full of life, you will never want for things to do.
