 Moving schools: some part of personal experience

Annotation: this article presents the experience of a student in moving to a new school and what factors helped her to be successful in it. How she came to this decision and what steps has taken in preparation for it.

Without any doubt at different stages of life people face changes and they are aimed at improvements of life quality, giving up some habits, for better and desirable results. One of the most important changes in student’s life could be transferring to a new school. Recently there is a tendency that many students would like to enter Nazarbayev Intellectual School. Taking into account actual education systems, advantages and opportunities that help to train skills, prepare a person for lifelong learning, being ready to take part in different intellectual competitions and passing international exams. And what are that factors that make teenagers change their school? How does education reflect their life?

First of all, it is important to be self — motivated and have desire to study for being successful in future. Parents’ desire for better future of their children may also influence the choice of school. However, without understanding responsibility for studying it will not bring expected outcomes. As moving to a new school could be stressful for children. In my case, mother’s expectations and my personal have appeared to be the same. Recognizing the reputation of school in society, its prestige status and opportunity for good education in local and international universities has helped us to take correct decision.

From that time started my intensive extra lessons in order to be ready to pass examination to enter the school. One more point in these extra lessons has been getting used to increased workload and more hours spent in school than before. Preparation is also important as the school has different program designed in corporation with Cambridge University and set of International Exams, monitoring skills in mathethematics and languages at secondary and high stages. Here support from your parents and relatives, who will help, raise mood, encourage and care about you is an essential part of the process.

What could be difficult is to balance academic and social life. And in this case comes for help swimming lessons, possibility to become a part of the choir, school theatre, attend dancing classes or choose intellectual hobby as chess. Strong community feeling helps to overcome many of difficult circumstances, you would be able to participate in social volunteer projects and show your abilities in different spheres.

After entering the school when you start studying it gives lots of advantages. It should be normal if you don’t understand something and should not be the reason for stress. Just you potential have not yet revealed all your talents. Anyway you can find the sphere that is closer to you and develop in this direction. What is very important teachers are attentive to students and ready to give an advice, explain the material till it becomes clear and orginise comfortable learning process. One more attractive factor for me was Olympiad reserves, such additional classes during which you can deepen your knowledge and participate in contents and competitions. The results from them also matter during enrollment to the University.

To sum up my ideas would like to conclude that Nazarbayev Intellectual School exceeds all expectations and is a worthy goal. It is a big honor to be a student of this school, but you should realistically evaluate your potential, determination and strive for the best results.
