Overview

Our Mission encourages students to “live their dreams.” Our campuses help make that possible.

Many schools are quick to say they’re not-for-profit like Shanghai American School. But at SAS, you can actually see proof of it. You can see it in the caliber and stability of our faculty, with an average tenure of 5.9 years. You can see it in our award-winning Signature programs. What you’re eyes may notice most, however, is that you can see it in our facilities.

That’s because SAS is the only international school in Shanghai where all revenue that comes into the school stays in the school. All of it. The results are two expansive campuses – our Pudong campus utilizes 23 acres; our Puxi campus spreads across 29 acres. Custom-built with university-level facilities that make SAS a popular host for conferences, tournaments, sports leagues, and events, each of our beautiful campuses feature an aquatic center, performing arts center, green screen rooms, recording studio, baseball field, softball field, track, playing fields, black box theaters, a teaching kitchen, training facilities, design studios/maker spaces, playgrounds, multiple libraries, cafeterias, lecture spaces, classrooms, and lots of other spaces for dreams to come to life.

As we prepare for our annual Chinese New Year break, the auditorium and Performing Arts Center will be filled with dancers, dragons, and students energetically celebrating our international community. Add in the interdisciplinary learning in our design studios and maker spaces, the practices in the aquatic centers and black box theaters, and studies of nature in the outdoor learning spaces, and you’ll see a school whose facilities are as unmatched as our students’ ambitions.
