UWCSEA

Postby strawberry_100 » Tue, 15 Sep 2009 10:38 am

Hi guyz..

My kid is currently in a neighbourhood primary school. Am planning to enroll him in UWCSEA.

Any reviews on the school.. So far the reviews I read was based on the fee structure and so on. I would like to know, if its worth the money spent. I need to decide within a week or so.. can i have feedback on the IGCSE curriculum and the school as well.

Thanks in advance..

Hi strawberry_100,

You are aware that UWC has a waiting list, right?

I had called up and confirmed that there is availability.

That's the reason, I am curious and would like to know more about the school from experienced ppl

UWC East Campus

I assume your place was for East campus. I have just called their admissions and was delighted to find out they still have around 10 places
for Grade 3. No spaces in any other grades at the moment but I reckon once
my Grade 3 is in, the younger ones will get some priority and hopefully wont have to wait too long.
Have visited the East campus and loved it - kids all looked happy. Keeping my fingers crossed !

Strawberry 100 – about UWCs GCSEs. To be honest, I am not that familiar at all with GCSEs in general as an American, we don’t have this curriculum.

My daughter is in her second year of GCSEs at UWC. Two things stand out for me and they may be common place – I don’t know.

One is the coordinated science option. If your child does not have a strong preference among the three science subjects – Biology, Chem and Physics, then coordinated science is a great option. In this class all three subjects are taught. I believe that it does help in choosing an IB science. My daughter didn’t want to take it and thought she wanted Chemistry only. Now, she is leaving towards Biology as her IB science.

The second is the Theory of Knowledge. Man – I wish I had this type of class in high school. My daughter loves this class. They learn about themselves – their values and ethics and why they think the way they do.
