Follow Our Journey

Since 2012, groups of Shanghai American School Grade 8 students have taken four-week journeys to the village of Xizhou in Southwest China's Yunnan Province as participants in the school's Microcampus program. As representatives of their campuses, these students leave the "bubble" of their home city of 22 million people and become immersed in a new community of 2000 people, 2000 kilometers from home, at 2000 meters above sea level.
The Quicksilver group--the seventeenth--arrived Xizhou on September 10th, 2016. Guests from around the world are encouraged to follow their journey--reading about, responding to, and joining in the learning adventure.
