Growing up ethnic Chinese in many places does not necessarily mean native mandarin speaker. The “misleading” part of the term “foreigner” is that most expats tend to forget that most expats here in Shanghai are ethnic Asian and MAY have a slight advantage in certain cases, but certainly the term “foreign” is used correctly to describe these schools and their enrollment; it is our responsibility as a community to make sure newcomers understand that a large segment of the expat community is Asian-based.
