The Job

Our school in Shanghai is now recruiting qualified English teachers to be a part of our close-knit community of professional teachers. We have students in elementary, middle school and high school aged between 7 – 18 years old. Teachers will only teach one of these age groups. We are committed to providing our students the most advanced and engaging international curriculum. With full support from the Chinese government, we also offer government required subjects as Chinese, Civic Education, Geography and History. Our team currently consists of 25 foreign teachers and 55 local teachers with 650 students and growing.

The international curriculum we provide in our school is delivered completely in English. Through the introduction of American-style learning methods and full English immersion, we are preparing our young learners to seamlessly adapt to the learning environment at international universities after they graduate. The school not only focuses on academics, we also educate our students to develop integrity and further enhance their intellectual curiosity, critical thinking skills and international perspectives.

Shanghai – The City

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago; it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghai’s colonial past featuring grand European architecture.


For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals’ daily life.
