And then after setting up the kindergarten and senior high school in 2001 she moved to the current site from Jinshan Road. In recent years, she developed many projects with special features: Overseas class in 2002, Sino-Canadian class in 2003 (the current GAC class), Intel class in 2005, Art class CIE class in 2007, Germany in 2009 and Spanish classes 2010. Today SFLS finely supports a K-12 education. Despite the short history, it remains truth of the school today; we have enjoyed the accolade of being named as the Leading Primary and Secondary School of Jiangsu Province – several times in the last decade.

One of the main characteristics of SFLS is her strong boarding ethos (85% boarding). We firmly believe that all pupils, juniors or seniors need the care and attention in our well-organized and closely-supervised boarding community. In addition, all buildings in SFLS are structured comfortably and very safe. We sincerely hope that by being more careful and friendlier to every student, we are more capable of responding to the needs of each individual.

SFLS is a non-denominational but multi-cultural mini-society. Although the majority of our students are from China mainland, we have a number of overseas students, usually from Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, UK, Thailand, Canada and the USA. This offers the exciting prospect of learning more about other countries and cultures in a free and tolerant community.

SFLS has a strong work ethic. Uniquely, about 500 staff, including nearly 30 foreign teachers, are all specialists of different subjects, for whom the school provides a very good range of academic, creative and professional atmosphere and training. This is a community of learning and growing for people of confidence and enthusiasm who know what they want to achieve and whom are working with towards it.
