In combination with the MAP test and the previous GPA, some students have made progress in all areas. In addition, the test also reflects that students' English reading ability is relatively weak. As the main language used in our school, English is not only a course, but also a tool. English ability also directly affects the performance of other English-related subjects. In order to help our students better adapt to the English learning environment and keep up with the progress of the course, the school began to launch self-study extension plan and tutoring program from mid-September. At 8:30 to 9:20 in the evening, students can use this time for self-study. For students who are weak in autonomous learning ability or need extra help, the school also arranges teachers to use the daytime or night-study time to give guidance to the children. In addition, our international teachers also set up a student support group. The teachers will make referrals for students who need help. After collecting all information, the team members will make a strategic plan that takes info consideration the psychological factors of the student.
In addition to the teacher's initiative, we also hope that the students will drive the whole learning atmosphere from passive learning to active learning. The teaching department and the student union are planning a study group led by students. The student leaders of each subject will lead strugging students to learn together and make progress together. The school will also strengthen communication between subject teachers, homeroom teachers and students to discover and help students with problems in a timely manner. The homeroom teachers will encourage the students to find the corresponding teacher to seek help. According to the class progress, subject teachers can give help to strugging students. In this way, students can learn to communicate actively and recognize the importance of self-directed learning, which is also essential for university study.
The Student Handbook is the foundation of NAIS student management. The school strictly implements the provisions of the student handbook, and works hard on moral education. When in school, the management of the use of electronic products for students was strengthened, students were guided to use electronic products in an educational. Moreover, the school pays attention to the mental health of students and establishes a professional psychological counseling room.
After the parents' meeting, the parents communicated with the teachers of various disciplines, focusing on the students' specific learning situation and classroom performance. Teachers' feedback mainly focused on the following points.

After being told about the child's learning situation, the parents said that the child has the responsibility to learn, they will continue to support the school and class, and will actively cooperate with the school to better educate the kid and make the kid grow up healthily.
The purpose of holding the parents' meeting is to combine the efforts of the school and parents into a joint force for education on the basis of understanding and communication, and to bring the greatest benefits of home-school education into play.
