The UEIS (United Education International School) Honors Program is recommended by the foreign teachers of different subjects in the “Honors Program Project Team” for students with outstanding academic performance and that meet the TOEFL score requirement. After passing the moral review, they will be invited to participate in the Honors Program. These students will take more challenges by participating in and completing various academic research and project learning.
In the Honors Program, students will receive special educational resources and are required to engage in more academic research and caring for social issues. The purpose of the program is that participating students can make use of project research and activity planning to enhance their personal growth and experience the life of entering a world-class university in advance.
The project will pay special attention to students’ thinking, research, and presentation skills. We will especially assign project consultants to the students, who will guide and explain the research fields of interest to students and share the steps of students’ discoveries. During the process of “corporate learning,” students will have the chance to meet and talk with experts from different fields in industry and society. We also offer special project courses and seminars for honor students, where they can discuss the different issues in various fields. The students will eventually acquire practical training and hands-on experience in various types of activity planning and management.
The project will require students to devote a great effort and personal time (including weekends and evenings), but it also means a great opportunity for personal growth. The UEIS Honors Program is not only a responsibility, an honor, but also a privilege, and students should take it seriously.
Real World Challenges, Real World Value
The aim of education is to prepare students for future life, and not simply for future school. As such, Elite Class students will be given work that demands production of final results which demonstrably have real world value. This work will include results such as the ability to give live speeches and presentations on learned content matter, exhibitions of work both in and outside of school, and cooperation with outside organizations to complete an event held in public space. Through these accomplishments, Elite Class students will be able to accumulate valuable knowledge, skills, and experiences for the future, at the same time providing attractive supplementary material for university application.
Students in the Elite Class will experience a wide variety of roles, from being a team member to a team leader. Social and communication skills will be an important learning target of this curriculum, and students will be forced into responsibilities which they may be unfamiliar with. Students will be challenged in ways that will prepare them for future life and work.
Planning, Execution, Reflection
Elite Class students will be given training and experience in completing work-like projects, training their thinking and planning skills. These projects will involve all steps of normally seen business projects, including planning, scheduling, budgeting, execution, and reflection. Through these processes, we aim to instill habits and modes of thinking that will be used throughout life, and will benefit our students for years to come.
Art, Beauty, Attention to Detail
One of the biggest needs we have identified in high school aged students is lack of attention to detail and inability to differentiate quality and non-quality work. This is partly due to the fact that they have not been trained in these areas and taught to think in this way.
Through art and design classes, Elite Class students will learn basic aesthetic concepts dealing with colors, lighting, and patterns. They will be exposed to modern practices in design and visual communication, which will aid them in the work in communication, presentation, and marketing in industry and the real world. Through these lessons, students will also be taught to see, appreciate, and utilize details that will allow them to raise the value of any work they take on in the future.
Strong Body, Strong Mind
Elite Class students will be given a strict exercise and personal time management schedule to follow. The aim is to develop healthy life and work habits that will be necessary for any competitive academic program in the west.
