Charity for our Community and Beyond
At YCIS Shanghai, our mission is to raise globally competent and compassionate leaders with a servant’s heart, who aspire to and act for, a better world.

Oxford comes a-calling to YCIS Shanghai and Hong Kong
We are delighted to announce that two students from our YCIS schools have received conditional offers from the University of Oxford. Sophia, from YCIS Shanghai (Puxi), will pursue a BA 'Law with German Law', and Derun Li, from YCIS Hong Kong, will read BA Physics.
New Beginnings and Smooth Transitions in Primary
The transition to primary school is a milestone for every child. The move might be exciting for some, and daunting for others as students face new opportunities and challenges. With changing locations for some of our YCIS locations, introducing new subjects and classes, and shifting away from a play-based learning environment, a smooth transition is essential to ensure children feel safe and secure. Our dedicated staff strives to provide this experience for students throughout their learning journeys at YCIS Shanghai.
