Two students from Thales Academy in Apex, Grace and George Zhou, have just been accepted at the Hong Kong International School (HKIS) in Hong Kong, China. HKIS is ranked among the top 10 international schools in Hong Kong, and is also top-ranked in the OECD “Programme for International Student Assessment” (PISA).
The Zhou children will be relocating with their family to Hong Kong. Their mother Leah Zhou faced the challenge of finding the right school for her children there. According to Leah, sending her children to Thales was a solid decision. Both students excelled as a result of their preparation at Thales. The school was also extremely helpful in assisting the Zhou family with transcripts, recommendations, and overall support from the faculty and staff.
Stories like this one reaffirm the benefits of innovative education and creative approaches to learning such as Thales has. Thales students outrank their peers nationwide and on average perform above their grade level. The academy fosters academic achievement, civic responsibility, and holds high standards of accountability, and the Zhou family has benefited from Thales’ approach to education.
Congratulations to the Zhou family, to Thales Academy and to Thales founder, Bob Luddy. We’re proud to have him as a member of the Civitas Institute Board of Directors.
