american

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Bus, car, walk

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Outstanding facilities but necessary Performing Arts Center due to be built next year. Top- notch swimming pool, fields.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

coming from a US school the transition was straight forward. The school attempts to help students who are having difficulty adjusting to a new country but needs more staff to address the issues more completely.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Parents at Pudong are very involved in the PTSA, Boosters, and other supportive groups.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

The Puxi campus is mostly local Chinese and Korean students( and mostly full with little turnover since most students are local) while the Pudong campus is more diverse with more Europeans and expat families so there is more turnover. While parents used to transfer to Puxi, most now stay at the Pudong campus unless they live near the Puxi campus. Apply to the campus that fits your needs.
