There are so many international schools in Shanghai. Which ones are good places for international school teachers to work at? How does the parent community view the international schools there?
We stumbled upon a great resource at Move One. Their website has a wealth of information about the ins and outs of moving abroad to a variety of cities around the world. They have many videos explaining what the international school situation is like in cities like Prague, Kiev, Budapest, etc.
Check out their video about Shanghai’s international schools.
Here is what Moveoneinc.com had to say in general about expats that are moving to China and the current schooling situation:
“In the past few years, a number of local Chinese schools have opened up to expat children and some expats without education allowances are giving it a go. Although these are remarkably cheaper than private schools and give children the opportunity to become immersed in the Chinese language and culture, most expats still opt to send their children to international schools.
China’s larger cities, such as Shanghai, Beijing or Guangzhou, offer a diverse range of international schools based on the International Baccalaureate programs, the American curriculum as well as the English National curriculum. These have a very high reputation and offer first-rate facilities, advanced teaching technology and equipment, internationally experienced teachers, low student/teacher ratios, and a wide variety of extracurricular activities.”
Their website has many more videos about life in Shanghai. The numerous topics covered are: medical clinics, what to do in case of an emergency, housing, kids activities, Chinese language, expat shopping, and more…
