Host School

Established in 1993 as Shanghai’s first independent international school, Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS) and has grown exponentially over the years, opening a fifth campus in February 2018.

Our five campuses, which are located in prime areas in both Puxi and Pudong, collectively cater for Kindergarten, Primary, and Secondary students, ages 2 to 18. As a school for the children of international families, our students come from over 50 countries and regions and are educated by world-class teachers from more than 20 countries. Our international curriculum helps to develop individuals with multicultural perspectives.

YCIS Shanghai is a fully-accredited school, recognised by:

  • The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC)
  • The Council of International Schools (CIS)

Our Secondary Schools are authorised as accredited Cambridge Assessment Examinations Centres for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and are International Baccalaureate World Schools, offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). We are proud to offer these world-class programmes as part of our international curriculum.

Additionally, YCIS is a member of the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) and of the East Asia Regional Conference of Overseas Schools (EARCOS).

At the root of our school’s philosophy is the blend of two major cultures, of the East and the West. We believe in the benefits of becoming competently bilingual and believe that the real essence of a culture must not just be understood, but truly valued. To cultivate this cultural experience for our students, our campuses are led jointly by two Co-Principals, one international and one Chinese. They represent the union of the East and West, working closely as partners to oversee their campuses.

We are delighted to host the ACAMIS Chinese Conference from June 29-30 at our brand new Ronghua Campus, located at 59 West Ronghua Road near South Shuicheng Road, in the Gubei New Area of Shanghai.
