Having lived in Shanghai for approaching ten years, I have seen the city, its landscape, its people and its educational scene evolve dramatically in so many exciting ways. I arrived in China in 2009, looking for new and exciting opportunities along the way, found myself teaching and later writing curriculum. That experience opened a whole new world for me and it really catalysed my passion for education. 

Having become a father, I now see education with more depth than before.  I have been fortunate to use the wonder of WeChat groups to gain valuable parent insights.  I can empathise with just how much thought goes into choosing the right school for your child, that is why I am extremely proud to put out this year’s School Directory – your one stop shop for all things school related.



Our 2019-20 School Directory will not only be available in print form but will be made available online for you to peruse all year-round. The Directory will help guide you through the maze of international schools, bilingual schools, preschools & kindergartens. You’ll be able to find curriculum information, tuition costs and a breakdown of each school you may potentially be interested in.
