Experimental School (SES) is attached to Shanghai Municipal
Education Commission. SES is a research-oriented institution
under the supervision of Shanghai Normal University. SES has
enjoyed good social reputation both at home and abroad. SES
was established in 1987. The former president Jiang Zemin attended
the foundation ceremony and honored the school with his autograph.
The current principal is Professor Li Youting, tutor of master
of Shanghai Normal University.
SES integrates education, instruction, and scientific experimentation
as a whole. It combines elementary schooling and secondary
schooling into a ten-year system of continuing education.
SES aims at fully exploring students’ potential, developing
and optimizing student’s personalities, and encouraging students
to show their abilities and attain their goals.
In 2007, SES will move into a new modern campus with 111
acres which is located in
Qi He Road
(close to the meeting place for EXPO 2010) to meet society’s
needs and the school’s development as well. To meet the requirements
of the foreign students’ educational needs, the Xuhui campus
of SES has become SES’s International Division (Primary School).
At the same time, a new primary school in Qi He area of Pu
Dong enrolls foreign students as well.
The Conception of International Division is “to Build a World
for the Children, to Train the Children for the World”. We
made large amount of research and experimental work on foreign
students’ adaptation to teaching content, teaching forms and
culture. Apart from this, we also made research and experimental
work on teacher allocation and teaching methodology. We created
and testified some formed teaching modules. Considering the
practical need for both teaching and learning, students will
be taught in a small-scaled class. All the subjects are well-designed
and textbooks for teaching are edited by the school teachers.
Teaching emphasis will be paid on activity strategies. All
these will enable students to get fully developed in such
aspects as knowledge, personality, interest, cultural adaptation,etc.
SES has many multi-functional classrooms and various kinds
of laboratories. It provides a platform for school-family
communication via internet. Parents are not only able to be
informed of their children’s performance at school in time
but also communicate with teachers just to the point.
SES has formed its peculiar teaching value and skills by
taking account of the international advanced teaching concepts
and educating pattern, by focusing on students’ sustainable
development and by cultivating a high-qualified faculty team.
Faculty’s English has improved efficiently by various forms
such as study abroad, learn from school’s foreign teachers
and teach in bilingual. Now faculty’s language competence
is all qualified according to the teaching requirement.
We welcome foreign students to study at our school and experience
the vigour and the happiness in the school as well.
SES provides an international education that emphasizes academic
excellence as well as the fullest development of students’
potentials, and aims at contributing to the lifelong development
of the students.
In an age of worldwide globalization, multi-language communication
is another main concern of SES. All members of the SES are
expected to share responsibility in helping to sustain a school
environment where the rights of all are respected.
The goals of the International Division: A young citizen who
has the cultural-conscious, the reasonable knowledge structure,
the innovation thought and the balanced development ability.

and write fairy tales.
