A Truly International Experience
Our warm, dynamic, and welcoming community is the result of the diverse and inclusive group of students, teachers, parents, and staff who choose to call SCIS their second home. Events like the United Nations International Day of Peace, for example, truly showcase the uniqueness that makes up the DNA at SCIS.
MULTI-CULTURAL, MULTI-ETHNIC, AND MULTI-LINGUAL ENVIRONMENT
Since 1996, families from nearly every corner of the Earth have enrolled at Shanghai Community International School. This school year alone, SCIS has students from over 65 countries, speaking any one of the 45 plus languages and dialects our families communicate in.
ONE WORLD FAMILY
One of the most unique strengths behind SCIS is our outstanding community. It is a place where all members of the community go out of their way to ensure a sense of belonging and provide support when, and whenever, it is needed.
We have a remarkable community of parents who volunteer their time and energy to the school through the Parents and Friends Association.
Listen to our Community Voices series, where we celebrate the differences and universal similarities that makes our community so unique.
Our Alumni Association represents graduates, former students, families, and staff that all share something in common – their time at SCIS.
SCIS provides our students with the chance to create global understanding, gain intercultural communication skills, and enhance additional language acquisition. This all occurs within a shared context that stresses the importance of respecting one another’s cultural backgrounds, traditions, values, and beliefs.
