When should I send my student to International School?
The Hong Kong education system can be daunting. For new and transferring students, it is important to recognise the nuances of each type of school and recognise the best time for entry for certain schools. As your consultants, we aim to maximise the chances of getting your child into the school of your choice - that means being able to recognise when certain types of schools accept additional students, or when certain types of curricula allow a natural entry point for a student to start fresh within a new system.
What type of curriculum should they study?
For example, schools based on the UK system start earlier than their American or Hong Kong counterparts. As parents, that means we have to plan meticulously ahead of time as to when would be a suitable entry point for the student. For a new or transferring student into a UK-based secondary school system, depending on the age of the student, natural entry points into that system are Year 9, 10 and 12.
