What is Vice Principal Liu Peng of the Cambridge High School’s view?
“Parents, through this introduction of our A-Level courses, I believe you will be impressed by A-levels. As the head of the High School in Cambridge, I would like to invite all parents to choose our A-level courses.
In this way, our students develop good learning habits. Teachers and students get to know each other well and teachers can help students to learn in a targeted way. I personally have had the experience of helping students to apply to world-class universities.
For example, I once helped a student from Zhejiang Province, Huang, to gain admission to Cambridge University. His IELTS score was only 6.5, and he was the only student that year who received an offer from Cambridge with a score of 6.5. I had helped him to develop his ability of independent thinking. It turned out that he was very diligent and careful. He was bold enough to send an email to the professor at the university to discuss a problem. His thoughtfulness and eagerness to study impressed Cambridge during the application process. His deep thinking and unique perspective was the main reason for his admission to Cambridge University.
The story shows that it is not enough to merely educate students to achieve a good academic performance, because Cambridge does not lack students with high scores. It is students with their own unique abilities or skills who are the kind of people that top university would be looking for. To help your child to be such a person, is exactly what our school’s educators are good at doing. So we welcome you to our high school….
What is Principal Liu Wang’s view?
“As an educator, I value the development of students’ abilities more than grades or scores。 So in the Science Month in March, we allowed students to experience multiculturalism and encouraged them to think independently。 In the study tours (field trips) in April, we let the students break away from the familiar, get rid of dependence, exercise the abilities of an independent life, oral communication and to take care of oneself in a new environment。 Also allowing students the freedom to develop their own character and strengthen their time management skills- these abilities are the foundation of a child’s happy life, and this educational concept will be continued into our high school department。
In this information lecture for parents, Li, a student from grade eight, had his parents send a message to school: “After listening to this class, found that A-level helps to cultivate all aspects of a child. After listening to the speeches of the two school leaders, I suddenly realized that education must follow a continuous pathway; knowledge must gradually converge into culture; little by little, culture condenses into education, which in turn permeates the student’s education and life. In a word, parent information sessions are very good. We anticipate more lectures, home-school cooperation, so that our students will improve more and more and our parents too!
