My husband and I are considering sending our children, aged 12, 10 and 8 to school in Shanghai for the coming school year, in June 2004.
Currently, all three children are taking Mandarin classes in school but the level is very basic and listening comprehension is almost nil.
We would like some guidance as to which schools in Shanghai are accepting foreign students who are interested in the regular Chinese education system.
Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you soon.
We are delighted to hear that you'd like to have your children educated in China, and we can recommend Shanghai High School to your family. Following is some useful reference information:
