Safety and Security

In our mission to serve the SAS community, the Safety and Security office oversees the physical security on school grounds and works with facilities to ensure a safe environment for everyone on campus.


Shanghai American School employs a dedicated team of over 70 contracted guards school-wide. Representing the physical security on campus, there are guards present 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our safety and security team is in charge of safety procedures regarding campus access and strictly enforces school policies. Some of which include:

  • Ensuring that all persons on campus wear a school issued ID that is visible at all times.
  • Ensuring that all visitors sign in with security and are then issued a temporary ID card.
In addition to the safety of each campus, the Safety and Security office monitors the air quality on both the Puxi and Pudong campuses. Along with many other major international schools in Shanghai, SAS uses the Air Quality China smart phone application to determine AQI for our respective campus. Depending on the levels certain modifications to daily activities may result. You are encouraged to check the AQI guidelines at Shanghai American School.
