Shanghai's Jiading district will establish a private foreign language school with JuneYao Group, a Shanghai-based conglomerate.

The Shanghai Jiading World Foreign Language School, including a primary and a middle school, is expected to open in September, 2017. It will be located at the Yunxiang residential community in Nanxiang town.

As long as the school runs smoothly, the district government will allow JuneYao to start a kindergarten and a high school to form a complete pre-college education system under the brand of Shanghai World Foreign Language School.

Founded in 1991, JuneYao Group covers education, food, high technology and it is the parent company of JuneYao Airlines.

JuneYao took over the private Shanghai World Foreign Language Middle School in 2005. It is a college-preparatory school that offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. In 2013, the company set up the first World Foreign Language School outside Shanghai, in Gongshu district of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

Gao Yun, head of Jiading district, said the establishment of the foreign language school will improve the overall educational level of Jiading and attract more talent to work and settle in the district.
