Shanghai American School = SAS = Stressed Asian School. That's all you need to know.

Has two campuses, Pudong is in a golf course with legit 0 stores for takeout in the 3k diameter, Puxi right across from a semi-dead mall with crappy entertainment but somehow parents still complain.

Teachers are getting worse, and your GPA really depends on your good luck in getting the right teacher. The school has a good record of sending kids to good colleges but that's more because of the parents than the teachers. But don't worry, if you are like me who has a shitty GPA below a 3.3, be assured that people with GPA lower than you from SAS got into colleges. Like Community College of Detroit.:)

Somehow this group of guys who binges on youtube in class and goes drinking weekly still have a 4.0. Maybe Asian moms.

Students have a weird pride that SAS is better than all the other international schools in Shanghai. They are not wrong.:)
A person from SMIC: "SMIC is a really good school."
A person from BISS: "BISS is a really good school."
A person from Concordia: "Concordia is a really good school."
A person from SAS: "Shanghai American School is the worst school ever!"

A nice, prestigious private school for westerners in Shanghai, China. It's a good school, surprisingly. The school is enormous, as it teaches pre-school to 12th grade. The work is hard, but the teachers are nice.

The girls are somewhat whoreish, and the guys are douchebags, as always. Most of the kids there are super rich because their dad's job planted them in China.

Shanghai American School has random fun days, such as Black Plague Day, Pompeii Day, etc. It's a good place to be.
Expat: Do you go to SMIC?

Kid: No, I go to Shanghai American School!

Expat: Oh that's a good school! :)
