This is our third international assignment and Concordia was the first to personally focus on helping us get settled as a family as soon as we arrived.

elementary school teacher Reflecting on her first year at Concordia
Heart and soul?–Every day!
"With learning support specialists, instructional coaches in literacy, STEM and digital literacy, and librarians for information literacy helping to support instruction, along with open access to professional development that I can use for things that make sense to me, it’s just been a PHENOMENAL first year!"
En Guard! Be Aware of Recruiting Scams
Concordia International School does not ask or require any candidates to send money for application fees, visas, or any other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Shanghai. If you have been asked by Concordia Shanghai or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you may be the target of an elaborate scam. Several international schools have had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send money as part of the scam. All candidates are urged to use extreme caution if they have been asked for money or private information.
We have found that empowered teachers communicate a passion for learning. At Concordia we believe that a passion for learning is essential to achieving life success.
