Find out how choosing the right high school will help better prepare your child for later life.
In your mind, your little ones are still baby-faced kids excited for their first day of school, then one day you look up and they’re almost the same height as you! While prepping for college may once have felt like a distant dream, it’s time to put it on your radar. Pair that with your teens growing sense of independence, and finding a school which can nurture both is a must.
Enter The Harbour School (THS), which has been putting students first for more than ten years now. With three campuses on Hong Kong island, it unlocks the best in every student, while still supporting your child’s sense of individualism. A progressive Pre-K to Grade 12 international school, THS focuses on a highly individual approach to learning by welcoming diverse styles within the American curriculum (because, as we all know, square pegs don’t fit in round holes!).
With the future in mind, THS curricular choices showcase how academic content is found in college and career settings. Students will gain an insight into life after high school and beyond. Prepare for success in a 21st-century workplace through a variety of programmes including the Independent Study Modules (ISM), designed to give students awareness into the choices they’ll face later in their education and on their career path. And with ongoing mentorship from a personal advisor, you know your kids are in safe hands.
- High school students choose topics in areas of interest to them for academic and personal growth. Anything from writing and performing original music, to building boats.
- The course catalogue is like that of universities, easing students into the decision-making process.
- It’s a great opportunity for students to make the academic programme work for them by test-driving the pathways of work and study.
Transitioning from high school to college can be tricky, for parents as well! With that in mind, middle school and high school parents are welcome to join the High School Information Series, where you’ll hear from THS faculty, universities and industry leaders on how to support your children throughout the process.
Join the open house for a free talk on College Transition: How High School Should Prepare Your Child for College Life. You can also schedule a tour of the campus, meet the faculty and learn how THS could be just right for your child.
