Getting your child into the right university is a priority for parents. We all want the best for our children. Unfortunately, popular thinking says our kids need MORE - more school, more lessons - in order to maximize their chances of success. The idea that MORE is better is a myth.
MYTH: Students need cram schools and academies in order to prepare for university.
FACT: WYIS provides the academic support your child needs to succeed at university and beyond.
WYIS is enough.
WYIS is enough by design. Our curriculum and regular coursework for secondary students is designed as daily preparation for the PSAT and SAT, the most popular tests used for college admissions.
FACT: The SAT (and PSAT, PSAT/NMSQT) are recognized by universities around the world including Korea, Australia, Europe, and the United States.
FACT: Academies and cram schools cater to students who are not using a US curriculum already. WYIS provides our students the #1 advantage for the SAT: an American curriculum.
In FACT, we are the only international school in Wuhan for expat children offering an American curriculum.
Our excellent students' test scores prove the point that WYIS is designed to be enough.
FACT: Our highest scores on recent SAT tests came from two of our current seniors who have never attended a cram school or academy. Out of 1600, one scored 1570; the other, 1530.
Parents, don’t fall for the MYTH that your child needs more than what WYIS offers.
It’s fact that some students may benefit from summer programs for language assistance, but anything that interferes with coursework offered during the school year just causes stress. Teenagers don’t need more stress. They need a healthy balance of school work, fun, and rest.
WYIS is enough.
Contact us to learn more about our excellent academics and university prep program. In the coming weeks, we’ll share more of how we prepare our students for success in top universities around the world. #wyisbuffaloes
