At Shangyi International (SYI), we believe that extracurricular activities are the unsung heroes of an international education. They cultivate creativity, confidence, and critical thinking, better preparing students to flourish in a constantly changing world. Today, 21st century skills and resilience of character cannot be rehearsed, memorized, and tested. They can only be acquired by doing. Extracurriculars provide students with the space to dabble and to explore, discovering interests that become passions, and building on this passion to demonstrate mastery through competitions or projects.
