Students say …

“I am Riley and I am glad to talk about my experience in Shanghai and online course. I studied G10 English in Shanghai with Ms.Luke and I had a wonderful time spending it with my classmates and teachers there. I lived with classmates and we became very good friends and support each other discussing problem questions online. I also learned G11 Math in August. The teacher, Mr. Ha is a very responsible teacher. He taught me how to think of the question and did video calls when I had some trouble. I am so happy to choose Laureate International College for my summer school courses. Also I can do it in my country, China! Thank you so much and I am glad to meet all of you during summer school! ” – Riley

“I am a graduate from Laureate International College. I feel thankful to Laureate because this is a school that led me to the success and because of Laureate, I am able to go to my dream university … The University of Toronto. If there is a second family except my original family, it would be Laureate. The teachers and principal are so patient and so caring of every single student’s feelings. Even when I am outside my home country, I am still being cared for and someone is always there for me. Laureate is a small high school that specialize in individual learning. It is not a drawback but a place where teachers are able to put their attention to every single student. To me, they are not just teachers, they are more like my family members.” – Shera, UT student

Parents say …

“I was introduced to Laureate by a friend. His child has successfully entered the Engineering Department at Queens University after studying at Laureate. Because of their warm and detailed introduction to Laureate, my child also came here to start a new study.

I am a parent who is anxious about children’s study. But when I first met with Principal OHASHI, I was immediately affected and moved by her amiable talk. Later, in other contacts, I feel more that Principal OHASHI gave me and my child meticulous care. The one-to-one and responsible teaching methods of teachers in each subject also make children more active in learning, asking questions and strengthen their learning in class.

I have to mention that Principal OHASHI is very professional and knowledgeable about 12th grade college/university admissions, the requirements of volunteerism to complete the high school diploma and the whole process. As a parent, I am very grateful to Principal OHASHI, teachers of various subjects and Ms. Wei, the teacher in charge of volunteer reporting, who has been tirelessly helping my son and me, and has been touched by their patience and love. This is the warmth and love that other schools don’t always have.

My child is greatly encouraged here. With the help of the Principal OHASHI and the teachers, he has made a lot of progress. At last, he has received acceptance from 9 universities, including Queens University Engineering Department, U of T Computer Science (Internship) major, Western University Engineering Department, etc.

Thanks to Principal OHASHI and teachers for their help and educating my child, so that he left with a very good memory of Laureate.
Thank you forever” – The Grateful heart
