Latest News

In May 2017 we held our first Tutoring Bootcamp in preparation for the 2017 exit exam from primary school. For 4 weeks teachers intensively tutored 6th graders on weekends and the results were amazing. School B increased its passing rate to 87% from 56% in 2016 and school A increased to 95% from 75%. Our goal is to achieve a 100% passing rate across both schools #NoChildLeftBehind.
