School Holidays in Shanghai
Information about the school calendar: the dates when the schools in Shanghai close for vacation...
The following are the school term dates and holidays observed by international and Chinese schools in the Shanghai metropolitan area. Private schools may follow a different schedule.
Most schools operate on a five-day schedule with the school day running from 07:30 to 16:30 with a lunch break from 11:30 to 13:00. International schools tend to have a shorter school day from 08:30 to 15:30.
The Chinese school year has two major breaks; a summer holiday from July to August and a winter holiday for the Spring Festival from January to February.
