Parent's Review of Shanghai American School Pudong Campus in Pudong, Shanghai, China

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Shanghai American School Pudong Campus

In what town or city is this school located?

Pudong, Shanghai

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

American

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Pk4-12

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

bus

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

Excellent facilities.

Activities they tailor and focus on High School . Not a lot of sports activities for MS and ES other than the swim team. They are lacking in the sports area for ES.

Outstanding pool facilities and a performing arts center is in the process. They also have a climbing wall in the HS.

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?

Transition is ok but once first week is done they lack follow-up. There is no follow-up and they need more staff, not enough counselors and only 1 school psychologist for both campuses! Disappointed in this area.

Honestly the curriculum in literacy is excellent but they lack in math, science and social studies, they are behind in ES.

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

Excellent PTSA and booster club. Great activities and socials , parents are very active and welcomed by the school .

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

Don't get fooled by the amazing facilities, there is more to a school than the facilities. Ask about bullying , disciplinary action , assessment policy,school philosophy, curriculum, get a feel for the administration, etc. There is a lot to consider beyond the looks of the school.

Ask yourself, why have so many teachers left ? Don't be fooled by the int'l teacher turn around! Consider all the superintendents that have come and gone in the last 5 years. The current administration is ruining the school!
