The first truly international school in Shanghai.
Shanghai Community International School was established in 1996 as one of the first international schools in Shanghai. What started out as a single campus, in the heart of the Changning district of the city, with 7 teachers and less than 50 students, has since grown to include multiple campuses and over 1,800 students.
Over 20 years ago, we recognized that Shanghai needed a truly international school – a school that focuses on developing the whole child in a supportive and nurturing environment that celebrates the spirit of a community-centered and truly internationally-minded education. SCIS was founded to serve that purpose.
