    Best decision I’ve made. The campus is, clean, new and fantastic!

    Impressed with put-into-practice differentiated learning, not just say they do it. The curriculum is robust and the professors are incredibly talented at making learning fun and accessible to our students. They emphasize the positive and teach students great values & social skills. Having smaller class sizes allows professors to truly know everyone’s strengths & challenges.

    The school is diverse and the teachers really care about we students. We absolutely fall in love with the wide variety of classes, programs and clubs offered. It’s highly academic In STEAM, but at the same time we have art, music, language and PE for all grades. The school also offers many social opportunities through evening activities & outings and educational workshops. With this balance I feel EF Academy develops the individuals academically and socially while at the same time is warm and nurturing.
    Every EF International student came from all around the world has his or her own fassionate and fresh mindset which creates the high quality of school academics. To satisfy their ambitions and eagerness, all teachers are also doing their best in guiding and teaching with sincerity. The culture of the school is considerably unique since it is mixed with various type of culture from different countries. This unique and colorful culture creates an orderly system while at the same time allowing students to have open mind. Students’ creativity is also always infinite because of the good influence in terms of resources vareity. These different students their own differerent interest in diverse academic fields, such as Music & Arts, Science & Math, Humanaity, and Language, so their interest lead the development of the school curiculum.
