Our motto “Quality Education First” is at the core of everything we do as a school. When our founders, Jack and Janet Murray, began the school in January 2002, it was because they believed English teaching in China could be improved. As an after-school program they saw a need to offer “quality” education, using native speakers, thus providing students with access to better oral English and improved language skills. Back in 2002, English after-school programs were rarely offered by native speakers, and in the Chinese public schools spoken English was just a minor part of what was taught. As trained educators, the Murray’s used their background to initiate a program of:
An English ONLY environment
Native speakers and qualified instructors
A proven curriculum with a strong emphasis on phonics
Over time this methodology has proven effective and has kept our school in business and growing. We began with a single location and we have 10 locations in Changchun and over 25 foreign teaching staff. Although our founders are no longer with the company their philosophy lives on and it’s what sets us apart from other after-school programs.
