Mrs. Zhang (Parent of International School Applicant), Shanghai, China

"Even though I was not familiar with applying to international schools, I was still surprised by the amount of paperwork needed to complete the application. To make it worse, our family was also preparing moving to Hong Kong and so had other paperwork to organise. We are so grateful that our Foundation counselor was so helpful throughout the application process and frequently reminded us what we still had to complete or submit.

When we visited the campus, the admissions officer was very nice and approachable. She provided helpful information as we walked around the school. I think my child was also more at ease than we expected. However, even though the officer was very helpful, it was a lot of new information to take in. It was a great relief that our counselor came with us to help us listen in and provide additional information that applied to our particular situation.

I was also impressed by the quality of training provided by Foundation. My child used to be quite quiet and nervous in front of people he didn’t know, and the interview training program that Foundation provides is one of the reasons why I chose them in the first place. I liked how the teacher was very approachable when I asked her about my child’s progress. More importantly, it seemed that my child showed signs of improvement and became more confident with his English. He is still shy but I think it is a good start.

I am moved by the dedication to my child by Foundation staff. They really helped a lot in this time of change for my family and I have already told my friend to consider using Foundation for his child too. Thank you!"
