First Day of School: August 30th 2017


Sometimes, when I closed my eyes and recall the first two weeks in CAIS, there is a voice which comes to my mind:” David, you chose the right school!”


Frankly speaking, the entrance exams were so hard. The reading comprehension was difficult for me to understand. However, I prepared a lot of math terminologies before the exam, which helped me a lot. Finally, I was so lucky that I passed the first test.


There are 3 words that can describe my feeling in CAIS: Confidence, self-improvement and diversity. 


Confidence: I was impressed by my classmates when they were making speeches in Mandarin class or in the cafeteria. Their confident expressions and fluent English were so amazing. I really want to be a man like them. 


Self-improvement: Sometimes, I found that even though I listened very carefully in the class, there was still some things that I didn’t understand, mostly that because I didn’t prepare previously. Therefore, I should find initiative. I should search for information or background knowledge on the Internet or library before head, which will help me better understand in the class.


Diversity: CAIS is a small but diverse world. For example, the DP class has economics, TOK (Theory of Knowledge), computer science, arts and many other subjects which enlarged my vision greatly. I believe that these diverse choices will also help me to explore my favorite area in the future.

多元化:CAIS的高中部开设的课程简直包罗万象,有一些我从未听说的经济学、哲学(TOK 知识理论)、计算机科学、艺术等等,我相信这样广阔的选择可以让我将来更加明确我的发展方向。

I have spent 9 years studying in a local school. I have been used to those prehistoric timetables, monthly exams, mock exams, and writing down all the knowledge that teachers taught without thinking and reflecting. Since I visited CAIS, everything changed. A voice came out of my mind. Yes, I like this challenge, I dare to chase it, and I don’t want to be a follower anymore.


Therefore, I am happy to embrace this new IB learning experience. It teaches me to think out of box. That is so exciting to me
