Working at the School


Shanghai is the most cosmopolitan and vibrant city in China . It’s a city that never sleeps and its energy is infectious. Like many other cosmopolitan cities, Shanghai has so much to offer. From diverse cultural and sport events, exquisite dining opportunities, nightlife and shopping, to the magnificent modern and old architecture, historical sights and places of natural beauty. It is simply not possible to be bored in Shanghai, which makes living and working in it a unique experience. We at Shanghai Singapore International School take pride in hiring dedicated and enthusiastic teachers to join our existing staff.
