Victoria Shanghai Academy (VSA) is an IB World School, located in Shum Wan next to the Aberdeen Harbour. The School provides over 2,000 students with quality bilingual IB education through the three programmes it offers – Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). VSA emphasizes a holistic approach to student development at the heart of which is inquiry-based learning and teaching. The primary section offers a bilingual education in English and Putonghua and the Secondary School programmes are delivered in English and supplemented by a strong Chinese programme.
At VSA, students feel empowered to learn at their own pace, and I feel that the school personalises learning so that all students have a say in what they learn. And for social, they are taught to be kind. To understand differences, appreciate and accept cultural and history differences of each other, and yet, at the same time, work collaboratively.

VSA taught me to always stay humble and to be understanding. This was inspired by teachers who supported us tremendously throughout the IB PYP, MYP and DP, along with peers who collectively created a supportive and welcoming environment to be in.

At VSA, I have had ample opportunities, such as representing the school in overseas Maths competitions and inter-school badminton competitions, organising student activities and services, to develop my interests and grow into a balanced IB learner.
