Shanghai Little Bridge School adopts a subject-based classroom approach. Throughout the studying process, the students' fixed homeroom and subject-based classroom are combined while students manage their own lockers according to individual needs. The result of this approach is the student's synchronous learning of cultural knowledge and life skills. Following our small-class teaching mode, the classroom table and chair arrangements are flexibly adjusted in order to build cooperative learning spaces. Little Bridge adheres to the educational philosophy of positive discipline where teachers and student groups work together to formulate classroom rules and other agreements which are then prominently posted in the classroom.
