The high school program at MLIA – SZ is still relatively small which allows for significant personalization of each student’s program.
For those entering grades 11 and 12 in September 2020, they will be completing the BC high school diploma program as well as the Chinese high school program. For those entering grade 10 in September 2020, they will continue to complete the Chinese high school program while being the first Maple Leaf students to complete the Mapleleaf World School Program. All students will have the opportunity to complete Advanced Placement (AP) college level courses.
The new Mapleleaf World School Program builds upon the successful BC program offered to Maple Leaf leaf students over the past 20 years while more fully embodying the concept of the best of Chinese and western education. The overall graduation requirements remain unchanged with World History and Geography replacing BC Sociology as a mandatory course.
Mapleleaf World School curriculum will also strengthen the cultivation of academic English skills to ensure graduates can successfully complete their chosen majors at universities. With improved academic English, the goal is for more universities to recognize the academic English ability of Mapleleaf graduates so that they may not have to complete additional English entrance assessments such as IELTS and TOEFL.
Maple Leaf has also partnered with two independent, widely recognized educational organizations in the recognition of the Maple Leaf World Education Program, Cognia and UK NARIC.
Cognia currently accredits 36,000 schools, educational institutions and training program in 83 countries and regions around the world. It is the world’s largest non-governmental and non-profit educational certification organization. Mapleleaf elementary, middle and high schools are currently certified by Cognia which will allow the new world school program to be automatically certified. Cognia will provide international third-party credit endorsement for Mapleleaf World High School Program transcripts and diplomas as well as assisting the schools with continuous improvement.
UK NARIC has been engaged to provide a consulting service to benchmark Mapleleaf World courses against A-level and BC course grades to ensure they are recognized by university admission offices.
UK NARIC将枫叶世界课程与A -level课程和BC课程进行对标，确保课程得到大学招生办公室的认可。
