Regional Info:
The school is located in Nanhui New City (formerly known as Lingang) - a brand new city in the Pudong area of Shanghai. Whilst a part of Shanghai administratively-speaking, in terms of location it is not. The city is located about 40 miles South East of Central Shanghai on the peninsular on Hangzhou Bay. Air here is fresh and the environment is apparently nice as well. Construction began in 2003 with the aim of creating a ''mini Hong Kong'' and is due to be completed in 2020. Downtown Shanghai takes about an hour and a half by metro and whilst this is a newly developing area with limited options for entertainment currently, it is growing rapidly. A new mall recently opened as well as museums and theme parks such as Shanghai Polar Ocean World (which opened in November 2018) which showcases Arctic and Antarctic wildlife and includes 4 interactive marine animal programs, 3 theatres and 15 other entertainment facilities. Several new and established universities are opening campuses in the Lingang area and over the next few years, the "most beautiful library in the city", the world's largest planetarium and indoor ski resort will open, as well as Tesla's first factory in China, which recently commenced construction.The area aims to attract 450,000 residents and 10 million tourists annually by 2020.
