In everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo.  We believe in our families.  The way we challenge the status quo is by offering a truly international education, in a community environment, while getting high results.  Our 2016 graduates average IB Score was 32, above the 30 worldwide average.  We ask you to take our Dare to Compare challenge and compare our averages against any school—in or outside of Shanghai. We even offer a convenient page to do so.


In the High School, our faculty design syllabi that are challenging, forward thinking, and that utilize best practices from around the globe.  They hold students to the highest standards of a college preparatory education.  Analytical reading, fluid writing, and critical thinking are all integrated with the most current technology available.  Our deep and diverse curriculum afford students opportunities to gain a broad understanding of many subjects and allows them to pursue their specific interests in greater depth and detail. The International Baccalaureate Diploma program rounds out our students’ experience in grades 11 and 12.  AP testing is optional to students who express an interest.
