In the past year, the international class, international high schools have sprung up speared out. Now in big cities such as Beijing, international education has become the mainstream, is one of the diversified development of our country high school types, although it is still in its infancy, but has a great potential for development. The emergence of international high school are also gradually caused the education mode of thinking.

Internationalization of education is to seek to cultivate "innovative talents" beneficial attempt

In today's globalization, how to cultivate innovative talents' need new ideas. In "the university entrance exam a youngster" s, students' academic pressure by the countless everyday, no time to think and practice "innovative talents" problem that students have to do is remember the teacher's steps, constantly, to solve the problem. Strengthen the problem solving process, so as to get good grades in the exams, an ideal university.

Relative to foreign college need IELTS (IELTS), TOEFL test (TOEFL) can be several times a year, students can according to their own time, prepare relevant matters such as arrangement of the test, this let students have more than a few times test, can be more comprehensive evaluating their own educational level. International high school because there is no pressure of college entrance examination entrance, the TOEFL exam, the SAT, AP exam, and the students' social practice study in these necessary items "amortization" to three years to complete high school, not only ensure the students can get a ideal score, but also can use three years time to training the students' ability of innovation, the speculative.

However, with the speeding up of global integration, the standard for talents are constantly changing, with international vision, sharp thinking ability, good communication skills and ability to project research, has become the core of modern talent evaluation standard. A lot of good family economic conditions, high comprehensive qualities of students hope to have the opportunity to better education environment to study, so now more and more international students education way.

The international high school education idea, the child's ability to innovate is not to teach

Famous educator qian xuesen gentleman living have questioned China's education "is not your own unique innovation, always take out outstanding talents", an important reason is the serious neglect the cultivation of student's creative thinking.

"We should be how to raise children with innovation ability"? Many are willing to pay a heavy price for education of Chinese parents, children can always thought as training skills to train children's creativity. Creative, however, in the child grow up only in the process of cultivation, creative are taught not to come out, but not appropriate enough to nip the creative education in the bud.

The basis of the traditional Chinese education from kindergarten, the children were asked to listen, "not obedient" children were dismissed as being naughty. Into the prevalence of primary and secondary schools "captive education", the students don't need to think about, just follow the teacher's explanation to grasp, remember that the standard answer, class cannot have "whimsy," remarks also dare not "free", when the composition if wrote "I don't like the expo, crowded is dead", that is likely to fail.

The children of the quadrature in the compasses in the subsequent performance and how? This from the society in recent years to apply for graduate career evaluation: "basically do not have any discovery, analysis and problem solving skills." New Oriental international high school (Beijing) Wang Peng President thinks, only from basic education started to change with the test for this learning methods and ways of thinking, college to cultivate a new generation of creative thinking activity. The international high school entrance mode, provides a possibility for this change.

In the new Oriental international high school, he said, we want to build a "knowledge integration", "communication" and "will question, will solve the problem of" students, not only the standard answer back high score. For middle school students' education, train the students' ability to question and found that the problem is the student innovation ability is the most important foundation in the future.

In the new Oriental international high school (Beijing) our eductional systme is four years, before the high there is a "preparatory" mechanism. Wang Peng principal explained: "in view of the domestic outstanding early graduates, use a year to strengthen students' mastery of basic cultural knowledge and application, we will focus on developing the students' English ability, and stimulate the learning potential, through the arts and science experiment, enhance students' practical ability, and cultivate the students' comprehensive qualities through the social practice course. Through elective courses, society practice, English communication sharing, let students clear their own advantage, to explore the professional orientation in the future. The clear goal, the ancestors step, for smoothly top-tier universities to apply for the foundation, also have a good start for the next three years of high school career. So, new Oriental international high school (Beijing) project from the second day of the original students enrollment, it may easily lead to a adapt to the requirements of the international innovative talents".

International high school teaching standards, international project should not ignore "Chinese elements"

Equivalent of westernization, internationalization? The answer is no.

"China's education should promote not international education, but education internationalization. Internationalization is also included in China." New Oriental international high school (Beijing) Wang Peng principal believes that in the international high school system, more should attach importance to highlight the advantages of traditional Chinese culture background. Because, only our own things to make Chinese students in the United States still remain competitive. Based on this idea, the new Oriental international high school in the curriculum, and the design of the extracurricular activities, all attempts to strengthen the Chinese characteristics, highlight the advantages of Chinese students.

For example, new Oriental international did not comply with American high school curriculum, but the design of curriculum system for students in China. On the one hand, strengthen language, including English and the second foreign language, on the other hand also open Chinese, politics and history, and appropriately increase math, science class, let the Chinese students on their discipline to maintain the advantage. At the same time, the school also increased for all students "Chinese calligraphy", "national studies" and other elective courses. To this, some parents don't understand, anyway have decided to study abroad, why do they learn these "without". But on the contrary, speak fluent English is very common in foreign countries, and only Chinese students are good at, while American students don't things, to form the core competitiveness.

"On the design of the extracurricular activities, we require students to view should be based on China, is in line with the world." For the international high school students, from school have to submit application for study abroad, at the very most less than two and a half years of time. Such a short time, students should not only complete high school curriculum system, and to take TOEFL, SAT, but there is a requirement for the American colleges and universities extracurricular activities and social practice. If going to apply for TOP30 university, at least 3 door AP5 points. So, we expect students to more widely and effectively use limited time to find their own personality traits, through widely participate in various projects of international organizations, as a researcher of China, participate in international competition and international exchanges of organization, to come into contact with the real society, at the same time to be able to utilize the known knowledge to analysis the difference between Chinese and western culture in international exchanges, the impact of the transaction.

In the process of practice to questioning and criticism theory knowledge, filtered to absorb the essence, so as to achieve the reconstruction of knowledge, really become the master of knowledge, the main body of learning.
