From toddler to global citizen, EtonHouse paves the path to international education!
What does it take to develop a babbling toddler to a confident and capable global citizen?
In EtonHouse International Education Group (EtonHouse), 16-years of international education from N1 to Y13 (Grade 12) has enabled generations of EtonHouse students to not only acquire rich knowledge, but also build their character and empower themselves to be empathetic critical thinkers, enthusiastic life-long learners and global citizens of the future.
Invited to China as early as 2003, EtonHouse opened its first international school for expatriate children outside of Singapore in Suzhou, and then opened 3 other schools in Nanjing, Foshan and Dalian, China, providing expatriate families with globally recognized international curriculum like the International Baccalaureate (IB) and the IGCSE/A-Level from the United Kingdom. Up to now, EtonHouse has not only ensured a seamless school transfer when expatriate families return home, but also made great progress in supporting students’ university applications through professional teaching staff, career and college counselling.
Many graduates from EtonHouse international schools in China have been admitted to the world’s TOP 100 universities, while more than 60% of them have gone to the TOP 10 universities in their home countries, including New York University in USA, University of Birmingham in United Kingdom, University of Queensland in Australia, Yonsei University in South Korea, Keio University in Japan and more.
I don’t think the school’s size like the scale of school will really effect child education, but the quality of the lessons, the teacher’s behavior toward education, and the teacher’s interests in students would affect very much on your child’s education. What I will miss most about EtonHouse are of course teachers, and there are a lot of teachers who have supported me mentally.”
——Katherine, EtonHouse Y13 student in 2021.
Earning the offer from Yonsei University, South Korea, Katherine had a 6-year journey from Y8 to Y13 in EtonHouse. Enrolled to one of Korea’s three “SKY” universities, she was so thankful to EtonHouse teachers as well as having beautiful memories about the EtonHouse campus.
“6 years ago, when I first came to EtonHouse, my teacher said that I should try to ‘release the little unicorn’ in my heart. At that time, I didn’t quite understand the meaning of this sentence. But under the guidance of the teacher, I gradually found my own interest, found a way to learn and explore the world, and finally realized my dream.”
—— Eric, EtonHouse Y13 student in 2020.
In face of uncertainty caused by COVID, Eric finally made it and got his dream place at New York University, being fueled by his perseverance, dedication and own interests. What empowered him were EtonHouse’s open and warm learning environment, great emphasis on students’ self-expression and exploration, and teachers who gave critical help and guidance.
