Our Principal

We have embarked on another exciting year here at Nanmo Private – one that is full of change! This is now my 3rd year at Nanmo and I have to say that with each year, I feel more and more at home and with that, increasingly appreciate the history, values and collegiality of being part of this fantastic community of students, parents and staff.

Unlike past years where we welcomed 3 new classes of grade 10s, this year we are excited to be, for the first time, welcoming 4! This is such a fantastic transition because it shows us that our school is dynamic and growing. Over the next 3 years we will all observe our new grade 10s transition from children to young adults as they develop academically, increase their awareness of themselves, others and the world around them, and grow physically. It is always exciting to see.

Last year again, 100% of our grade 12 students were able to graduate with both a Shanghai and British Columbia diploma. Additionally, our 64 graduates were given over 500 university offers – such an impressive achievement. The vast majority of our students have already transitioned abroad, and are starting their first weeks of classes at top Canadian universities like the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, Queens, Western, Waterloo, and the University of Alberta. Many are also attending top institutions outside of Canada, including the University of Sydney (Australia), Boston University (USA), University College of London and the University of Manchester (UK).

As with most years, we had well-regarded staff leave. This year I am happy to say that our new staff are all very strong, highly motivated and well-experienced. Most are still transitioning to China, but we expect most to be on campus by the end of the October holiday. Additionally, with our growth in enrollment, we were able to add 2 more staff to the BC Program. This allowed us to keep class sizes at levels that optimize teacher-student ratios to better serve students. We were also able to add a number of elective courses, which gives our students greater choice, which in turn, benefits them as they are able to choose courses that play to their strengths.

I am excited and looking forward to working with a positive, energetic, and collaborative student and staff body here in Shanghai. I know I speak on behalf of all Nanmo staff when I say that this school is going to be a fantastic year!

About us

Established in 1911, Shanghai Nanyang Model High School is one of the top schools in Shanghai. Many famous Chinese politicians, philosophers, artists, educators, and even former basketball star Yao Ming, have graduated from this school. Every year, hundreds of students apply to both the domestic and international departments in order to experience the noteworthy prestige and high-quality education. Due to popular demand, a new campus opened in 2015 to accommodate the BC Offshore Program and shares the building with an additional international program. The new campus, called “Shanghai Nanyang Model Private High School”, offers our BC high school program for grades 10, 11, and 12. The strengths of this school include a strong leadership team and a dynamic staff of vibrant and dedicated teachers.

Located in the cosmopolitan metropolis of Shanghai, Shanghai Nanyang Model Private High School is located in Xuijahui, beside the French Concession; a charming juxtaposition where new city lights meeting old colonial architecture. One is only a short bike ride or ten to fifteen-minute taxi ride to the other exciting sectors of Shanghai. It is truly a prime location!

To help students to succeed in a rapidly changing world, educators need to move the focus away from merely providing teacher-centered delivery of content. That’s why at Nanmo BC, we focus on developing the basic skills that students will need for success in life, like reading, writing, math, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. This teaching is delivered through real-world experiences related to students’ interests and passions.

Students are taught in English by BC certified teachers and they use the same textbooks as students in British Columbia. Examples of courses taught in our school include: English Language Arts, English Language Learner, Social Studies, Math, AP Calculus, Science, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, AP Psychology, AP World History, AP Macro Economics, IT, Visual / Performing Arts, Physical Education, Chinese Culture and Mandarin.

Shanghai Nanyang Model Private High School offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities including athletics as part of the BC Offhsore Sports League, competing against other BC Offshore Schools from Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Zhenjiang provinces. We offer basketball, soccer, ultimate, running, badminton, and hockey with both boys and girls teams along with co-ed teams. We also have intra-mural house competitions, student union, and clubs such as Battle of the Bands, French, Hockey, Yoga, drama, and singing.
