At Shanghai Livingston American School, all students are placed into one of four Wildcat houses: White Tigers, Black Lions, Red Lynx, or Silver Snow Leopards. Every year the houses compete against each other in a tournament of events to earn House Points. Students can also earn points by demonstrating our Core Values (Creative Thinker, Proficient Communicator, Confident Individual, and Compassionate Citizen of the World) in the classroom. The house that earns the most points every month wins a prize!
