Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS Shanghai) is renowned for offering one of the most progressive programmes of international education in China.
As the first independent international school officially registered with the Chinese government, it is one of the leading international schools in Shanghai. The school's unique bilingual and multicultural approach to education is recognized globally, and is part of why YCIS has been recognized by Reader's Digest as a Trusted Brand for three years in a row, and why YCIS is the only school in China to have received the Cambridge “Award for Excellence in Education.” YCIS accepts children from ages 2 to 18, and has over 2,400 students from more than 50 countries, creating an extremely diverse learning environment.
YCIS Shanghai is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the National Center for School Curriculum and Textbook Development (NCCT). In addition, the secondary school is authorised as an accredited Cambridge International Examinations Centre and International Baccalaureate World School. In 2012, YCIS became the first and only international school in China to receive the “Cambridge Award for Excellence in Education."
