Former Site of Xuhui Public School

Location : No.68 Hongqiao Road, Xuhui District, Shanghai



Established in 1850, Xuhui Public School (currently Shanghai Xuhui High School) is one of the first schools in Shanghai that offered Western education, hence the reputation as "the first Western school" or "the first school introducing Western learning". Founded by the French Catholic priest Claude Gotteland during the reign of Emperor Daoguang (1820–1850) in the Qing Dynasty, it was originally named St.Ignatius College after its founding patron saint St.Ignatius of Loyola, and was later known as Xujiahui Public School or Xuhui Public School for short because of its location at Xujiahui in the current Xuhui District.
