China's first international school targeting the children of returning overseas Chinese has been established in Shanghai, and started to enroll first grade students for the upcoming September semester.

Shanghai Starriver Overseas Chinese School was established in response to the globalized educational development of Shanghai, and its curriculum is based upon the international curriculum of Shanghai High School International Division (SHSID), according to the school introduction on the website of Shanghai High School.

Xu Lihong, whose daughter will go to the school, spoke highly of the historical legacy and education quality of Shanghai High School and believed that the curriculum, which is set for students from the similar family background, will be conducive to children's growth and future development.
