◊ Living in Shanghai

--------------------------

• Expatriate life - Education

◦ Children Schooling

Children's education is an important component of a family's relocation, several years ago many expatriate families may worry about the varieties of schoolings in Shanghai - but today, you have a wide options - There have been about 15 good international schools providing  almost all the international curriculums for children from foreign countries.  Most of them are established by authorized foreign institutions, offices of international organizations or some ratified foreign residents in China.

The only problem is that the growing of international schools still can't catch the speed of the growing of expatriate families in Shanghai. Actually the lack of vacancies is common in each international schools in Shanghai today, so you will find it's not a fool of pain to make schooling enrolment in the early section of your relocation.

Typically, a family will come to Shanghai for 2 - 5 days for some pre-move research on schools. You shall consider the curriculum, the location, the quality of education, the price and the key features matching your personality.
