Sending a child to a private boarding school abroad is not an easy decision. The schoolboy will have to change not only the linguistic and academic environment, but also the social environment. Not every child is ready for independent living in a residence abroad (without the usual amenities, parental care, etc.). For such schoolchildren, the rational choice is the choice of a day school, many foreign colleges today offer such a residence regime. For students aged 14-19, the most popular is the accommodation on the campus of institutions where they study and live under the 24-hour supervision of the staff of the institution.

The presented Smapse catalog includes a lot of educational institutions, one or several of them need to be selected (we recommend the second option), which meet the requirements of the child and parents as much as possible. It is not easy to do this. To optimize the process, we suggest using the advice of experts in the field of foreign education.
Looking through the catalog (information on each of the selected), pay attention to the approach to learning. In the description of educational institutions, priority training methods are indicated. Practice shows that the vast majority of educational centers work within the framework of an individual approach to students - this contributes to the high level of achievements of children.
The second important criterion is the quality of teaching.

The high level of qualification of the pedagogical staff is the pride of many educational institutions.

We recommend educational centers with state-of-the-art training facilities, advanced technology, and a developed internal infrastructure.

By preferring to daytime educational institutions abroad, parents are advised to take into account a number of their characteristics. These include:
Many schools abroad successfully work dozens (and some - and hundreds!) Years: their educational traditions have crystallized over the centuries, which allows them to offer truly effective , Working methods of teaching. At the same time, foreign schools are actively introducing modern educational methods - for example, interactive training, innovative technology, online platforms and electronic resources, etc.
The certificate obtained at the British and other schools abroad is incredibly highly appreciated - it is almost a "white ticket" to the best universities and a big plus for future employers, an excellent start to a successful career in the international community. [999.29 ]
The best foreign private schools are distinguished by the international composition of pupils, racial and cultural diversity. Studying in such an atmosphere, the Russian schoolchild has the opportunity to get to know more closely the representatives of diverse cultures and faiths, learn to respect someone else's opinion and point of view, establish international contacts and acquaintances, and find friends from all over the world.
The earlier a child enters a foreign school - the more independent and stubborn he will grow. Despite the fact that in boarding schools children are constantly under supervision, they quickly get used to managing their time independently, determine priority areas of study, allocate hours for study and electives. In most boarding schools (especially separate education), a strict discipline is established: smoking, drug and alcohol use are immediately punished; No less closely monitor the attendance of lessons, performance, behavior.
Promotes the development of independence and the choice of subjects, which the student carries out independently from the middle classes. Having defined his priorities and interests, the student can devote maximum attention to the most important disciplines, which increases his intellectual level - and at the same time the chances of enrolling in a prestigious university.
It is worth admitting that foreign schools offer children much more opportunities than the overwhelming advantage of Russian educational institutions. Modern classes with interactive whiteboards, linguaphone rooms, libraries with electronic resources, modern computers and multimedia centers, the latest sports infrastructure and equipment are all that pupils can need for study, recreation and living.
Even if you do not take into account that every child studying abroad, by the time of graduation, knows English practically at the level of the carrier, as the second native one - many students know by the end of secondary education an additional 2-3 foreign Language. Switzerland is especially famous for linguistic education: it is a multilingual, multicultural country, therefore the students here know not only English, but also German and French. As electives you can learn Spanish or Chinese - in the future this will be a significant advantage in the international labor market. Immersion in the language culture will increase the level of the foreign language, as no language school and even the best tutors can do.
The best private schools abroad are not cheap, but fully justify their value. Teachers practice an individual approach to each student, respect each person as a unique, harmoniously developed personality. Classes are held in small classes, so that every student has the opportunity to get maximum personal attention from the teacher. The main thing in foreign schools is not just to invest in the minds of children an array of knowledge, but to teach them to think, reason and analyze, formulate and express their opinions, and foster the desire for new knowledge and self-education.
