Beijing - School Report Question and Answers

What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?

There is a large counseling staff available to kids. We have loved our MS counselor who has moved up with our middle schooler’s grade each year. In HS each student has two counselors-one for social-emotional and one for university counseling. There is a tremendous amount of support for both aspects. We have received very valuable, personalized support. They definitely know each of our kids personally and have advocated and provided for their needs individually, allowing them to pursue their passions at a higher level and helping our oldest to find a great university where he has been very happy this last year. - Jun 2023

My child that has extra learning needs has felt incredibly supported by the counselors and with a dedicated learning support teacher. The counseling experience for high schoolers has truly been amazing. There is a dedicated curriculum for students - with a component for parents - to prepare students to apply to college. They walk through everything from understand their skills/interests, to understanding the application process in different countries, to developing their essays, preparing to interview if needed, and preparing the actual applications. I feel like they are holding our hands throughout the entire process, with quarterly meetings with the counselor for the parents/student to ensure we are on track. Families also use Maia learning to identify and learn about schools in their desired region/field of interest, and track the application process. - Dec 2022
