This week at Shanghai American School, we celebrate Founders Week. On September 17, 1912, we first opened our doors to 38 students and we’ve since grown to nearly 3,000 Eagles on our two campuses. To celebrate, we are highlighting an inspirational alumnus from the class of 2010.
Our alumni tell the story of our past, to help us know our future.
We know we’re not supposed to have favorites, but…. we’ve got to admit, SAS alumna Betty Barr holds a very special place in our hearts. And the feeling is mutual. She might have graduated over 70 years ago, but she still makes trips to school, is a regular at graduation ceremonies, and her closest pals are still her high school classmates.
Our very own Andrew ’10 and Nafisah ’11 are officially off the market. They tied the knot in Mexico a few weeks ago and we couldn't be happier for them! Andrew and Nafisah attended Shanghai American School, but at different campuses, making their love story even more special.
Recognize any of these faces? That’s because most of them were roaming around campus and worrying about college applications just five years ago.
