The US Education System
Across the world and for many years, students and parents have recognized the benefits of obtaining a US education. The best accredited US programs at every level offer an approach to education that encourages students to develop their own capacity and passion for learning with the support ofcutting-edge instructional resources and facilities. Graduates of such programs emerge not only with job-ready skills, but also with a foundation for learning and success that serves them their whole lifetimes.
Some of the hallmarks of the US education system are:
Quality: Across the range of American schools, from Ivy-league to smaller colleges and vocational schools, students can find programs taught by leading experts in their field – experts in the US and often the world. Such experts have a natural inclination toward best-in-class research and practical applications of knowledge – and they have the professional and/or industry associations to make students’ learning experiences incredibly rich.
Variety: The US education system has often been said to be the most diverse in the world, in terms of:
• Size of student population (from only a few hundred to tens of thousands of students);
• Admissions criteria (from highly competitive to completely open);
• Setting (from world-famous metropolises to lovely small-town campuses, and from desert-hot to northern climates);
• Programs (in terms of duration and field of study, as well as approach, i.e., vocational to academic);
• Delivery (from physical campuses to blended delivery models and entirely online programs);
• Culture (from rigorous and specific academic programs to arts-focused, sports-intensive, or technically oriented programs).
Student-centered: The American school system, like US values in general, is centered on a belief in individualism, on personal growth, and on opportunity for anyone – regardless of race, class, or other differences – to achieve a quality education. From an early age, students are encouraged to voice their opinions, and to participate actively in their learning. They receive a broad-based education from the day they first enter school as children to high schooland even into the first years of college, and extra-curricular activities and social skills are prioritized alongside academics.
Well-rounded: Students are viewed as individual human beings most of all, and while grades are important, American educators believe strongly that students being active in social, sports, and cultural activities is crucial to their well-being and eventual success in their lives and careers. What happens on school campuses – as well as in actual classrooms – is a big part of the character of American schools.
