As far as I know, by dictate of the municipal bureau of education, all schools, public and private (excluding international schools) start classes every year on September 1st. I'm surprised to hear that there is any flexibility in this date. In my experience, Shanghai schools put little effort into designing an academic calendar because it is all decided for them.

I would invite you to my school but I just changed jobs and I'll be a newb when you arrive, so I don't feel comfortable asking my new colleagues to allow a guest observer. If there's anything else I can help with, however, just let me know.

(I've chaired the calendar planning committee at a private school in Shanghai for five years now.)
