The SMIC Private School & Kindergarten, Shanghai

The SMIC Private School combines the rigor of Chinese discipline and resourcefulness of American creativity to provide students with a school that offers them the best of the East and the West. SMIC students not only enjoy the fusion of cultures within campus, but they also create their own culture and define their individual identities in this place where their interests are nurtured and their skills are challenged. We produce confident and global- minded students who understand their place in the world, learning from inspiring teachers who offer their unique perspectives on life and learning.
