Welcome to Shanghai American School!
Established in 1912, SAS is one
of the oldest international schools in the world and the largest in China. This year's centennial festivities give us the opportunity to celebrate both our rich past and our promising future. We cherish a long legacy of educational
excellence and a broad community of accomplished alumni that has made a difference in every corner of the world. We also work hard to keep ahead of the changing demands of 21st century education, by providing the technology, creative teaching, and opportunities for real life and service learning that take our students beyond the classroom walls and into the global community they inhabit.
