January is a stressful time for not only students, but also parents. After all, this is when applications for the coming school year need to be finalized, and when parents must choose which of Beijing’s many educational options will be the best fit for their little ones.
Such a crucial decision can be overwhelming, to say the least. Most families are daunted and exasperated by the process of researching our city’s schools, filling out applications, and finding time to visit the campuses to see if they will suit their children’s needs.
Fortunately, you and yours can breathe easier this year, because many of Beijing’s top schools are coming to you. Those scattered around town education institutions will gather at the beijingkids’ Beijing International School Expo (BISE) 2015 at the Kerry Hotel Beijing on January 24-25 from 10am-4pm. Families can peruse the booths, learn more about what these schools have to offer, and pose questions to each campus’ representatives.
