Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is it possible for the child to travel alone?
No. A parent or trusted Guardian must accompany the child. While Shanghai has a reputation as being safe cities, it is a mistake to think that nothing will happen. Sudden illness or a pandemic like the recent MERS may strike the student, an accident may occur or a student may get into a predicament such as conflict or argument with another student, or maybe having problems with a room-mate or with the landlord. The student may find themselves in a situation where they have nobody to turn to in a strange land.
2. Can I choose my own accommodation and travel dates?
Yes, you can choose to arrange your own accommodation. Our recommendations are primarily based on proximity and ease of getting to and from the the school, and reputation of the hotel to be safe and clean. We recommend that you arrive at the hotel latest by Sunday afternoon as the school week starts on a Monday, so you can familiarize yourself with the surroundings and attend the briefing session held at 6pm.
3. What travel documents do I need?
Well, you need a valid passport for the whole duration of your program and depending on your nationality. You may also need a visa for your stay. Contact us for more information.
4. What are the school hours and class size like? Is lunch provided?
Students attend school Mondays through Fridays from 8:00am to 3:00pm. The current class size of the schools we work with is no more than 24 students per class. School caterers provide hot lunches. However, lunch is optional and students can bring their own lunch if they wish to.
5. How does the application process work?
Applications are reviewed after all of the required documents are received. Students are offered placement if they have been qualified (met admission requirements set by the school) and seats are available. Admission decisions are communicated as early as possible; however, availability of seats is contingent on the class size not exceeding the capacity. If a grade level is at capacity, we will maintain a wait pool for qualified applicants.
6. Do you admit special needs students?
Most mainstream local schools have limited or no resources to support students who, due to severe disabilities (i.e. learning, physical, and/or behavioral), require major staffing, curricular or assessment modifications. All decisions regarding admission for students with special needs are made on an individual case-by-case basis. Parents are required to provide all relevant documentation regarding the child's special needs for the school to review. Failure to completely disclose special needs and intervention documentation during the application process may result in the reversal of any admission offer made without previous knowledge of a child’s situation.
