Opened in September 2014 and operating from their beautiful purpose built campus, our client operates an independent, Chinese-foreign collaborative high school approved by Shanghai Education Committee. Chinese and international students from around the world attend this three-year, full-time boarding school in Shanghai for grades 10, 11, and 12. 

The curriculum integrates an international perspective with four pillars of Chinese compulsory education, Chinese Language, History, Math, Geography and Politics. Students have the option to participate in the Shanghai academic proficiency exams. They are able to apply for domestic Chinese Universities as well as having the option to seek higher education abroad. In its first year, the school aimed to matriculate 100 students from Shanghai and 50 students from other areas of China for the Grade 10 class. International students are also encouraged to apply. In future years when the school is at full capacity, our client intends to enroll approximately 1,000 students across all three grade levels.
