My daughter attends SCIS Hongqiao campus. This is her first year and she’s very happy there, aside from one teenage-girl sort of issue that I hope will soon be resolved. In fact, she would like to stay there until she graduates, but we’ll be going back to our home country long before then.
It’s very international, as are many of the schools, has small classes, enthusiastic teachers, American curriculum, ESOL for non-English speakers, choice of 3 languages at present (Mandarin, French, Spanish), and they are building a new facility next-door to the old one.
At present the school goes through 9th grade, but they have been adding a year as each class is promoted. I understand that the Changning campus (elementary only) is well-liked, and has the advantage of being very close to the Jiangsu Lu metro stop.
