Welcome to Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS Shanghai).

We opened our campus doors over a decade ago to accommodate the expanding interest in YCIS among parents in Shanghai. And over the years, interest in the YCIS model of education has grown steadily, resulting in campuses being established in both the Puxi and Pudong areas of the city.

Today, we have 2,500 students from around the world attending YCIS Shanghai. And with a staff gathered from over ten nations around the world, we are one of the most international of schools operating in Shanghai. Your child will grow and be educated amongst other children of different nationalities, with each campus reflecting the global village we all live in today.

YCIS Shanghai features a few unique educational elements that truly help to shape your child into a bilingual, multicultural and global minded individual. Our one-of-a-kind Co-Principal structure, where two principals, one Western and one Chinese, work side by side, instils the best elements of Western and Chinese traditions into students. We also promote bilingualism by placing an English-speaking teacher and a Chinese-speaking teacher in each class.

It is our hope that all of our graduates will emerge into positions of leadership throughout the society of the 21st century. We encourage you to read the YCIS philosophy and its objectives to help you better understand why YCIS are considered to be the leading bilingual schools in Asia.
