TAS is licensed by the Shanghai Education Bureau as a non-profit Chinese Private school. The school provides bilingual, comprehensive education for Chinese students whose families desire a mixed East-West approach to academics and character development. Each class has a very low student-teacher ration with a maximum number of 25 students per class. This allows our teachers to better attend to students academic needs. The following is a list of the curriculum and testing used for education:
Raz-Kids provides students with a digital and mobile library with books of various levels of difficulty that allows students to access readings in school, at home, or on the go. The easy to use online controls provides teachers with tools to manage and track their students’ reading progress.
Character First Education allows teachers, administrators, and parents to work together in order to build future leaders with character. Character First allows TAS to address issues such as conflict resolution, leadership skills, health and wellness, decision making, good citizenship, and academic excellence. This character curriculum provides fun, engaging, positive, practical, and research-based lessons that will help students build the character and competence needed for success.

在2018年3月，上海更新学校开始安排全体学生参加MAP（Measures of Academic Progress学术进步鉴定）成长测试。此考试会在每学年的九月，十二月和六月对每一个孩子进行个性化评估。它通过计算机大数据测评精确定位每个孩子现有知识所在的层级并计算出接下来孩子所要学习的内容。因为能够适应每个孩子的具体情况，MAP成长测试会在绩优生感觉有难度的同时避免打击那些学习有困难的孩子。它还能检测出孩子们的进步情况，帮助家长及老师追踪孩子全年甚至在我校数年的成长历程。家长可以在每次测试后两周左右拿到成绩。老师们会一直利用MAP测试评估成绩来更好地满足每一个课堂的学习需求。
In March, 2018, Transformation Academy of Shanghai began administering theMAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Growth test to the entire student body. This test is a personalized assessment given to each student three times during the school year, in September, December, and June. It is a computer-adaptive assessment which meets each student at their own level and is used to pinpoint what the student currently knows and what they are ready to learn next. Adapting to the needs of each student – MAPGrowth challenges top performers, without overwhelming struggling students. MAP also measures growth over time, allowing both parents and teachers to track a student’s progress throughout the school year and across multiple years as they continue with our school. Parents will receive results about two weeks after each testing session. Teachers will be using the results of the assessments to better meet the learning needs of each class.
