It’s hard to not notice Luke ’22 if you ever visit Shanghai American School’s Pudong campus. Out on the baseball field, the high school junior’s loud voice can be heard leading his team through warm ups. Back inside the school building, he is spotted planning mental health campaigns to help the student body cope with stress in a healthy way.
Shanghai American School junior Lyssha ’22’s first memory of SAS was especially vivid. “I remember stepping off the school bus for the first time and seeing real grass,” she says. “At my old school, it was all fake turf grass. I was always getting scrapes and burns from sliding on it.”
A class of Grade 7 students convinced school librarian Kimbra Power to record herself singing a song while gargling water in her mouth. Kimbra agreed, and after she did it, other students and faculty followed. This was all part of an experiment to go viral. The experiment was part of a learning unit from these students’ Humanities class at Shanghai American School.
