Description

Shanghai American School (SAS) is the kind of school you wish you would’ve attended when you were a kid. We have a challenging academic curriculum that helps pave a path to top universities around the world, over 150 activities and award-winning clubs, and sports teams that won three times more APAC championships last year than any other school. And as a non-profit, all our revenue goes into making the school even better, resulting in many facilities that are at university level. SAS is one of Asia’s most respected international schools, and is China’s most established international school, with a history that begins in 1912. We are an independent school with two campuses, both offering a comprehensive syllabus from pre-K3 to grade 12 and an AP and Full IB Diploma. In fact, SAS was chosen to be one of the first 100 schools worldwide to offer the AP Capstone degree.
