Hi. My name is Mijeong Kim, and I am a mom of three sons, Eunwoo (Y6), Geonwoo (Y4), and Shinwoo Kim (JK). My sons have been studying at AIS for more than two years.
So far, I am very satisfied with their school lives. During the last two years, I have experienced so many great things from AIS in terms of online learning and offline learning. When I had to face online learning at first in February 2020, it was not really great experience. That was because like many other schools, AIS was not fully ready for online learning and my kids were not used to the online school system either.
However, AIS tried to listen to the voice of parents and students about online learning and reflected immediately on the curriculum. When I had to face online learning again (when HCMC was locked down in 2021), the online curriculum was very systematic and easy to follow for students. Although it was 'Online Learning', my kids felt like they were studying in the real school and meeting classmates and teachers. From everyday feedback of teachers who were very cheerful and careful, my kids keep their curiosity and patience in learning. I really appreciate the huge effort of teachers for the students. The curriculum of AIS also stimulates the curiosity of my kids about the world.
From AIS, my kids are getting to have questions about environmental problems, poverty, and many issues of the world. They are not only learning knowledge but also attitude as a global citizen to make a change. I can see that they are starting to have a bigger view of the world. I believe those experiences give my kids a high level of self-esteem, consideration, awareness, and responsibility for the world.
I do not know if my kids would become global leaders or not. But I hope they have the happiest, the most confident, and the most considerate lives in the future. I believe the various experiences and happy memories of AIS will be the stepping stone. Thank you for reading my stories.
