Nestled in the densely populated Qiantan International Business District of Shanghai, Huili School Shanghai is a 26,000 SM campus for 1,400 students in the first to 12th grades. Blending together the best of Chinese and British pedagogies, this world-class bilingual international school for both Chinese and foreign students develops rich understandings of Chinese culture along with skills needed to thrive as successful global citizens.
Inspired by Wellington College in England, the Huili campus creates house-based learning communities with an emphasis on STEAM and next-generation learning. Classrooms, workshops, and studio spaces are integrated with collaborative community spaces, stimulating a sense of belonging and encouraging informal gathering, mentoring, and interaction among teachers and students.
This innovative vertical, urban educational campus is the centerpiece of a DLR Group-designed mixed-use development that incorporates 76,000 SM of educational, office, and residential space into an integrated learn, work, and live family-oriented community.
