MSS Milestones


An Exciting History


The Montessori School of Shanghai began with the dream of building a school that provided a style of education that gave children an exciting opportunity to love learning.  Montessori was just the right method to fulfill this dream.  The school board founded the Montessori School of Shanghai with the intention to provide this opportunity to as many children in Shanghai as possible. Making a difference and having an impact on the development of the community was a driving passion. 





In 2005 the first campus in QingPu opened with two classrooms and 36 children.  Good news spreads fast. By the following school year additional classes were opened and a waitlist was started.  Enrollment has grown to 230 students. 


In 2007 the second campus opened in the XuHui District. Within the first year, the classes were filled and a waitlist was started there as well.  Xuhui campus continues to be filled to capacity of 130 students. 



The XuHui Campus has had full enrollment since it’s beginning.  Families continue to spread the word of our “great school”.


Our West Hongqiao Campus occupied its new facility in Gao Jing Road in January 2013.  We couldn’t be happier to offer an amazing school with a fabulous indoor and outdoor environment; the first of it’s kind in Shanghai.  


The Jiading Campus opened in January 2015 win the favor of parents.


September 2017 saw great success of Minhang Campus grand opening. 




Montessori School of Shanghai has been praised by the Montessori community and the Chinese educational community for accomplishing exactly what we set out to do: build an educational setting that was not currently available in Shanghai and that provided children with an exciting opportunity to love learning. MSS is dedicated to bringing authentic Montessori education to as many children in Shanghai as possible. We believe that Montessori education benefits children and adults, and is an education that will establish healthy attitudes for life. We will continue to expand without compromising our standards and seize opportunity as it comes along.
