Yes, most definitely. In fact, our students graduate to mainstream high school with less ‘cultural shock’ than most other students, giving them a significant advantage. Not only are they equipped academically (often at very high standards), they’ve had years developing skills, and forming positive habits:
- Socially (confidently making friends, working in teams, leading peers)
- Motivation and responsibility (setting plans and achieving goals, completing daily tasks including homework),
- Critical and creative thinking (solving problems, thinking outside the box, comparing options)
- Independence and resilience (self-directed and focused, able to manage change and approach obstacles with a ‘can do’ attitude)
And above all, they have developed a lifelong love of learning that fills them with the confidence to achieve anything they want.
