Welcome to Shanghai Weiyu High School
Shanghai Weiyu High School (SWHS) is a modern boarding school, which puts the long-term development and happiness of its students at the core of its campus culture, as it believes that wellbeing will prepare children to play a meaningful role in society later in life.
This approach has certainly paid off, with nearly 80 percent of students admitted on to programs at some of China’s most elite colleges, such as Peking University, Tsinghua University, Fudan University, Shanghai Jiaotong University and Tongji University.
In its 60 year history, the school has cultivated some exceptionally talented individuals whom now work at distinguished institutions including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Academy of Engineering.
Founded on the exacting standard of the famous educator Mr. Li Chucai, SWHS has become a bastion of educational excellence in Shanghai.
If you are looking for an experimental approach to learning, Shanghai Weiyu High School is a good match
Echoing China’s greater push to encourage innovation and entrepreneurialism, the underlying spirit of SWHS is to be an institution that poses all the qualities of an “experimental, demonstrative high school.” This spirit was acknowledged in February 2005 when it was named one of the first experimental model high schools in Shanghai.
SWHS was the first school in Shanghai to recruit Chinese students to the prestigious IB Diploma Program. While its international division provides excellent classes that prepare its graduates to sit the entrance exams for colleges in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan as well as foreign higher education institutes.
