Simply put, 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 some of the top universities around the world, and over 150 activities, award-winning clubs and trophy-collecting sports teams. Our student population of 2900 hails from 46 countries, and our dedicated faculty have an average tenure of six years – 56 of whom have been with us over a decade. And as a nonprofit, independent school, all revenue goes right back into making the school even better by creating dynamic learning environments and facilities that are at university-level.
Our mission is to inspire in all students a lifelong passion for learning; a commitment to act with integrity and compassion; and the courage to live their dreams.
