Shanghai Hongrun Boyuan School
Located on a beautiful, ten-acre lakeside campus adjacent to the ancient water town of Zhujiajiao in Shanghai’s western Qingpu district, SHBS was founded in 2018 by a group of life-long international educators. The residential campus offers state-of-the-art resources, including a science and STEAM laboratory building; an arts center with painting, digital arts and ceramics studios; music practice, performance and recording spaces; and recreational facilities for a wide range of sports. With our values of dignity, honor, respect, and integrity, students’ personal and intellectual growth is fostered through a rigorous curriculum and discussion- and project-based learning.
SHBS offers a comprehensive American high school curriculum in partnership with Griggs International Academy, which approves and audits all elements of instruction, including faculty credentials, course material, and examinations. Students are thus eligible to receive a fully accredited U.S. diploma. SHBS is also authorized by ACT to offer GAC courses and to operate as an ACT testing center, with eligible students able to sit for examinations beginning in the Spring of 2021.
