The precious experiences at PennSchool 

“Being a past student of PennSchool, I’ve found myself decently prepared for the journey ahead, no doubt thanks to what I’ve learned during my high school days.” – Bui Vu Khoa – PennSchool alumni

PennSchool is proud to offer an advanced and constantly improving education, aimed at nurturing traditional values and educating young talented generations who are all-rounded in knowledge, skills as well as physical and mental health.

PennSchool’s students have been equipped with the solid fundamentals of knowledge, being healthy in physical and mental, outstanding personality traits, and mastering essential skills. Those factors gain the confidence and competencies they need to firmly follow their dreams and are ready for their next journey.

Let’s check out the sharing of Bui Vu Khoa about his precious journey at PennSchool where has created great competencies for her to adapt to a new environment so that he can confidently explore ahead journeys.

Vu Khoa is currently a freshman at Vietnamese-German University with 30% of scholarship.

“Entering a new school has always been challenging, whether it is middle school, high school or college. A new student always finds himself struggling for the first few months to catch up in a new environment, especially during the transition period from high school to college… However, it was also during this process that I learned certain skills that will transfer very well from high school, provided that it was taught to the students by their school during their school years.

Firstly, and arguably most importantly, it was self-studying. In college and university, professors won’t just hand you work to do and walk through the process of completing it with you. Instead an assignment along with some reference material will be given and you’ll be expected to study said material to complete the assignment by yourself, with minimal guidance from your teacher outside of in class lectures… It turns out the prior knowledge I’ve acquired from Penn School has helped me get used to this kind of independent working early. Back then, I thought it was bothersome but as it turns out, it is thanks to the skills and knowledge I’ve acquired during these projects… 

In addition, deadlines and work management are things that had been taught to us by PennSchool teachers during our day to day lessons. Because of the amount of aforementioned expected self-studying as well as the time spent in lectures everyday, this becomes a very important skill to have as a college student.  You’ll practically be required to manage your schedule in a way that’s sensible so that you would be able to spread out the workload efficiently and not overload. it became useful once again in college where we have to do that on an almost daily basis.

The experience of studying in college is nowhere close to what you’d already be used to in high school. While this process can be sped up considerably if your prior school has prepared you with necessary skills as pointed out above, it is still good to enter college with a fresh and open mind so that you’ll be ready for anything.
