Shanghai Plus

Overview

In Chinese, 'curriculum' is translated as 'journey of study.' In Latin, curriculum is a path in which students walk in small steps. The Pao School curriculum is the beginning of a life-long journey in which students will need the knowledge and skills to make good decisions and contribute positively to society. As a bilingual Chinese-English programme, Pao School’s Middle School curriculum, “Shanghai Plus”, is designed to bridge the sequence between the school’s Primary and High School curricula, providing students with a programme that honours and respects Chinese cultural tradition, while incorporating the best practices from international education. The Shanghai Plus curriculum in Pao School’s Year 6 to 8 students is a combination of standards from the Shanghai curriculum and selected international curricular.
