A reader commented on the Expat Report Review of YK Pao in Shanghai, China
Review-of-YK Pao
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Go and see it to feel the difference with other bilingual schools. This is a caring community, it is not a machine that stamps children into the same shape and size. Teachers show genuine care and attention to individual children, most of the foreign teachers have been in China for some time and are committed. Children develop genuine respect for their teachers. Consider the Chinese element of the curriculum carefully if neither of the parents speak Chinese or just consider it a great opportunity to learn more Chinese yourself! (Continue)

My friend sent her daughter to YK Pao School from Malaysia, Year 7. Prior joining the school, she attended the Summer Camp to get a feel about the school and boost Chinese. You may also consider this option.

The school has grown very fast so teacher quality is much more varied. This year our younger child had great teachers while our older child had terrible teachers. Because it has local kids, the Chinese is the most advanced of international schools, but the flip side is the English is pretty poor - combined with the fact that the English faculty is not the best and many of the Chinese teachers are quite young in terms of experience.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The school is shabby and run-down with broken tennis nets and a dumpy classrooms. Only a few team sports offered by rubbish teachers who seem to think it is beneath them. (Continue)

We lived in Qingdao for 5 years and loved it! The Chinese are wonderful people, and the variety of foreigners provide great diversity. China is full of wonderful tourist sites, and Qingdao is a good place to settle between trips. Lots of expat activities going on.
