Shanghai Community International School (SCIS) serves over 2,000 students from over 60 nationalities at campuses in Hongqiao and Pudong. Facilities are state-or-the-art and purpose-built. All campuses have wireless internet access and superior resources that support an innovative technology program, including the 1-to-1 Macintosh laptop initiative for upper school students. The curriculum is international, including the IB program.
Materials are largely from the U.S., but also materials from other countries. We develop the whole child and help children develop into responsible, confident contributors to the world around them by stressing – in addition to academics – the social, emotional, and ethical growth of each child.
SCIS provides opportunities for students to participate in special interest activities, community building, the arts, and athletics both during the school day and in our afterschool activity programs. SCIS has families from all over the world and the cultural diversity offers valuable experiences for our students in and out of the classroom. All students at each grade level are involved in service learning. Class trips occur regularly throughout the year and upper school students have yearly trips planned outside of Shanghai. These and other initiatives aim to develop a strong sense of host-country awareness and community appreciation.
The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is a member of the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) and the East Asian Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS). SCIS is the first international school in Shanghai certified by the National Center for Curriculum and Textbooks (NCCT) under Ministry of Education in China.
