Ever wonder what a typical school day looks like from the eyes of an elementary student at Shanghai American School? Hard to believe, but these scenes are literally from one day on each of our two campuses. After a day filled with discoveries, hands-on learning, and pure joy, it’s easy to see why this is a school where we all “wish we could’ve gone.”
Ready to pirouette into something extraordinary? Welcome to the dance program at Shanghai American School Pudong. We pride ourselves not just on our diverse selection of dance classes, but also on being the only school to offer IB dance in Shanghai.

Middle school is often the age of awkwardness, growth spurts, and social exploration. It’s also a time where young teens embark on journeys of grand discovery.

Ah, the sweet smell of burpees in the morning. Welcome to a day in the life of Sunny Mihova and Ricardo Machado, PE teachers and CrossFit aficionados at Shanghai American School’s Pudong campus.

Hanjing Wang, a senior at Puxi, found her writing spark in her seventh-grade English class, which led her to conjure up tales that defy conventions and challenge readers to think anew. This past spring, she published Infinitesimal, a thought-provoking collection of short stories, which is now for sale on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Infinitesimal is a testament to her dedication and passion for storytelling, all the while championing the female perspective in the literary landscape where she feels it's often overlooked.
