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.


Service Learning: Compassion, Charity, and Future-Thinking

The Service Learning programme aims to nurture YCIS Shanghai students as ‘Servant Leaders’, teaching them compassion and charitable service. Service Learning allows students to make a difference, become aware of global issues, and actively participate in ideas that can create change within their classroom, school, community, and beyond. Wherever possible, Service Learning is embedded in the curriculum, changing the mindset of the students through significant, authentic experiences from Early Childhood Education (ECE) to Primary and Secondary.


Top Reasons Why Families Choose YCIS Shanghai

When YCIS Shanghai opened its doors in 1993, it was the city’s first independent international school to be officially recognised by, and registered with, the local government. The first Yew Chung School was established in 1932 by our founder, Madam Tsang Chor-hang, with the mission of making China stronger through education. Over subsequent decades, the breadth of education grew steadily to provide an equally enlightened education model for students from infancy to Secondary graduation.
