"My advice is to make the high school or secondary school experience an end in itself - not a means to an end. What universities are really looking
for are children who have learned, who have made the most of their opportunities, who have experienced something and really engaged with that experience."
Offering you a wide range of tools to find the information you need
Global Education Explorer
A web-based tool with information and interpretation about education around the world -- a self-help tool for a family considering an international assignment. Look in Global Education Explorer to research and answer questions like:
- Are local schools around the world an option?
- How are special needs children accommodated worldwide?
- What are the curriculum differences if I move to another country?
- What tests need to be taken for admissions internationally?
Global Education in the only web based tool that encompasses all aspects of children’s educational experiences around the world- including academic content, curriculum comparisons, and traditions like what to wear to school, how birthdays are celebrated, and what to get the teacher for the holidays.
It’s everything parents ‘need to know’ that will make all the difference in a successful relocation.
