This is my son's second year with The Open Classroom. Under the guidance of the teachers, he has been exposed to a lot of new topics, and has opportunities in sharpening his writing and presentation skills. With his new found confidence, he's brave enough to tests his skills by joining writing competitions and participating in public magic show. More importantly, credit to The Open Classroom, he has developed a passion for writing. He even won a writing competition with his classmates recently. I have no hesitation in recommending The Open Classroom to other parents

Parent of P6, Renaissance College

My daughter has always been a bookworm. However, her writing skills were not improving from reading books because her reading habit was to simply scan through a book to find out the ending of the story. After joining The Open Classroom programs, she was taught to take time to analyze the characters and content of different stories. Then I noticed that she started to read books in a different manner. Her reading habits have changed and her writing skills are improving. She has less grammatical mistakes in her written work. I am impressed that her writing speed has improved significantly under the teacher's guidance. I hope she can gain more from this program in the future.

Parent of P5, St Paul’s Convent

This year, I was applying for the University of Hong Kong's fast track program. Having had no experience with college admissions, I decided to take classes at The Open Classroom. My teacher first helped me with the personal statement, she guided me through what I was expected to write and even gave me a few suggestions. I found her help very useful since the application was rather vague on what they looked for in the essay. I was delighted to be offered an interview with the HKU medicine program. And I decided to continue taking interview lessons at The Open Classroom where I had a few mock interviews to prepare me for the upcoming interview. Like the personal statement, I had no idea what was expected of me so I was very glad to have been well prepared before my real interview.

Heart-warming personalized and non-commercial immersion approach of The Open Classroom helps bring out the goodness and creativity in our child as we watched him grew leaps and bounds to reach greater heights.

As a teacher, I definitely see the need to promote critical thinking skills in our youths today. And life skills include so much more than what is included in the basic school subjects! From my daughter's reactions to the modules she took, I can see her interest brimming over after each class.
