How Do We Best Prepare Our Students for the Future?

Harvard Club of Shanghai presents a round table panel discussion with principals from top U.S. High Schools

Our students are facing a very different world ahead of them. What are the key skill sets and qualities they need for the future? How do we best prepare them for top universities and beyond? What can we learn from the U.S. education experience? The Harvard Club of Shanghai and Harvard Shanghai Center invites you to join us for a roundtable discussion with principals from the International Academy (IA) schools in Michigan and recognized educational leaders from Harvard.

The IA schools are highly ranked public high schools in the U.S. Among them, the International Academy of Oakland County is the largest IB diploma granting school in North America. The International Academy of Macomb is the 2018 Number One magnet school in the U.S. Each year, the IA schools send students to top universities such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, and the University of Michigan.
艾威达学校(IA)是美国最顶尖的公立高中,其中位于Bloomfield Hills的艾威达学校总校是北美地区最大的IB高中,而艾威达学校-Macomb分校则在2018年被评为全美最佳“磁石学校”。每年,艾威达学校都有众多学生进入哈佛、耶鲁、普林斯顿、麻省理工、密歇根大学等全美顶尖大学。
