SMIC is extraordinary in many ways. The only school that comes to my mind that actually has a river running through it! The lunches are controversial. School is a just as much a learning experience for the teachers as apposed to the students, and things getting done three weeks, let alone three months, after promised deadlines are commemorated. All these exclusive factors make SMIC a memorable and (if you don’t mind me saying) quite exquisite. The thing that I love the most about SMIC is that colorful after school life that waits for me every school day after I am dismissed. SMIC has a great number of things to do after school mainly because of the early ending of school.
Many schools end at a prolonged 3: 55 pm, leaving students who live far from the school with nominal amounts of spare time to do things that they want or need to do, for usually it’s a long bus ride home and another day squandered. However SMIC frees the students an hour earlier than any school in Shanghai, combined with an absence of a long-commute-home, really just paves the way for an awesome afternoon ahead. The possibilities are endless. Activities range from curricular to extracurricular to the absolutely non-curricular. Those of you that are feeling the pressures of college surely feel that upcoming SAT breathing down you neck right? Have no fear. SMIC offers after school SAT prep classes for all that want to get into there dream schools.
Worldwide, most students attend either single-sex schools or co-ed schools. Is there a difference? Close analysis of both systems of schooling shows that in terms of social, academic and emotional growth, co-ed schools are better. Firstly, it is important to explore the advantages and disadvantages of both systems. Co-ed school provides a superb environment and opportunity for both sexes to mix, ...
The SAT classes aren’t the only way you can enhance and improve your knowledge! Teachers are on stand by and because all the teachers in SMIC are just fabulous, are willing to assists you in any troubles you come across in your studies. Teachers will stay for hours on end for you if you have not a clue how to prove the Pythagorim theorem, or if you have a piece from the Iliad that absolutely makes no sense to you. There are lots of clubs and extracurricular after school for the students to get involved in. The community service club is an awesome example of what kind of opportunities SMIC offers its students.
The students give back to the society that is desperately in need of these kid’s contributions. Cooking club is out there with the cause. They provide the food and drink to the kids. What would we do with out them? Think about it. The only possible way they could do, should I say cook, so much is the excess amount of time they have after school.
Hip-Hop club is another excellent example of after school life being fun and inspiring at the same time. The next time you feel like doing some charity to help orphans, learning to cook a gourmet dish, and / or try to do a correct air-flare with out hurting your self, you will be absolutely grateful for the copious amounts afternoons you have. Last but not least on my list of dos are the absolutely non-curricular activities. The barbershop right out side the school is an excellent way to relieve some of the daily stress or just kill some time by getting a massage. Go there with your friends and just indulge yourself. Life is sweet.
Einstein once said to the world.” There is to much education in school.” What about after school? What we learn after the learning experience in school I believe are just as important to us. SMIC therefore has my love for that.
