    Q: : What are some of the main differences between Menaul School Qingdao and other international schools?

    Menaul School Qingdao prepares Chinese students who want to successfully pursue higher education in top – tier American colleges and universities. While they are at MSQ, students not only study the curriculum found in the best American high schools (including Advanced Placement courses). They also adjust to an all – English speaking environment to build a broad academic English vocabulary base they will need for success in college. Furthermore, our students are exposed to the American way of education and culture. MSQ learners also prepare for success on standardized tests such as the TOEFL, and SATs. What sets MSQ apart from every other international school in China is our Research & Development (R&D) program. Students select their own research projects that have real-world applications. They conduct in-depth university level research and then present their findings through various pedagogically sound assignments and projects just as they will in college. MSQ also provides various extracurricular activities in order to enhance the core competencies of our students . Completing these will in turn enhance their chances of being accepted by top – level foreign colleges. Under the guidance of our experienced college counselors, MSQ students are assisted through every phase of the college application process.
