Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS Shanghai) is one of the leading international schools in China. Our unique education nurtures the talents of international children aged 2 to 18 years old. Through Kindergarten, Primary, and Secondary schools, our curriculum helps our students develop strong skills in English and Chinese and become globally-minded for a competitive future. YCIS students consistently achieve “Top in the World” academic results and outstanding extra-curricular successes. Our school is a vibrant community of students, faculty, and families coming together in a warm and collaborative way.


"Drop Everything and Read!" Students Engage in Literary Learning

The proven benefits of reading are numerous and long-lasting, so YCIS Shanghai organises ‘Book Week’ events annually to encourage a love of books and reading among students. During the recent 2020 Book Weeks, Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Primary students, on both sides of the river, enjoyed a variety of exciting literary-related events, presentations, and activities. 


A Career in Research with YCIS Shanghai Alumnus Andrew Chang

In times of uncertainty we often look to those before us who have been in our shoes and have walked similar paths. For students who are interested in STEM subjects and are about to apply to university, this may be a familiar feeling since career prospects are not so defined at this stage. Andrew Chang from YCIS Shanghai Pudong’s inaugural class (he joined the school in 1999) shares his journey from his time at Yew Chung to studying abroad in North America, working at Stanford University, and returning to Shanghai to lead the operations of a research lab.
