Welcome to the Upper School




Welcome to SCIS!  As the Upper School Principal, I am proud to help carry on the traditions of academic rigor and holistic development that have made SCIS a leading international school in Shanghai.  We believe in promoting the intellectual and social emotional growth of our students.  Through our students’ participation in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programs, contextualized in one of Shanghai’s most diverse learning communities, and their participation in a wide ranging extracurricular program, we provide the guidance and the opportunities for students to develop into the best version of themselves. 


Whether you have been at SCIS for years or you are looking at our website for the first time, we encourage you to review the information here and contact us with questions.  For those discovering SCIS for the first time, we invite you to join us on campus to see for yourself why SCIS may be the best place for your child to learn and grow.  For current members of the SCIS community, we encourage you to explore the resources on this site in your ongoing support of your child’s learning. 


SCIS’s commitment to cutting edge, research-based instructional practice and holistic development is the foundation of what we do every day.  This commitment is only rivaled by the importance we place on relationships that promote growth and development.  For those new to SCIS, we invite you to join our community.  For those that are already part of the SCIS community, we encourage you to participate in community events to strength your ties.

Warm Regards,


Frank Volpe
