SAS at 110 – A Look Into Our Story

Most of our community knows we were founded in 1912. They can guess from our name that we’ve been in the city of Shanghai for over 100 years.  

But beyond that, what was our story from then until now? 

This Founder’s Week, we welcome you to take a journey down memory lane and explore our special 110 years history timeline. The story of SAS is one of growth and optimism. Of community and traditions. Whether it is the shared tradition of sport, passion for learning, or pride in the school, our timeline provides a glimpse into the many legends before our time who shaped our school in both big and small ways. Maybe you’ll find that you have more in common than not with your fellow alumni from decades ago.
