As the global economy has grown and China’s role in the world economy increased, expatriates from all over the world have relocated to China with their families. As international parents and education experts ourselves here at Chalksmart, we know the challenges of moving to a new country and trying to find the right school and the right place to live with a limited amount of time and resources.
In Shanghai, there are three major types of schools: International Schools, Private Schools, and Local Schools with International Divisions. Note that only foreign passport holders are allowed to attend International Schools. There are a number of options available, including British and American curriculums, IB courses, AP courses, bilingual English-Chinese programs, as well as non-English curriculums. Click below for information on heavily searched curriculum types.
Learn more about different options below, or go directly to the search to find the right school for your children. Good Luck with your search and if you have any questions you can send an email to our resident expert through firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to answer any of your questions.
