We recognise and value the gift in each child. We harness the gift from one domain to multiple domains, from academic to life skills. At GATE Junior, our enrichment curriculum (Talent Development Programme) is developed by our parent company “Gifted and Talented Education” with an accolade of outstanding alumni’s achievements. Many developed countries have established various gifted education programmes for more than half a century including Israel, USA, Singapore, and Australia. Gifted programme has produced many celebrities, i.e. Mark Zuckerberg, Lady Gaga, Sergey Brin, Elon Musk.
Grit is determination, resilience, tenacity, passion, and perseverance towards a long term goal. We believe the amount of “grit” a child has is the most critical factor to determine his/her long term achievements. At GATE Junior, we create and reinforce a learning culture of grit from curriculum design, teaching and parenting style and peer motivation (as each person’s grit enhances the grit in others).
We adopt a growth mindset strategy as intelligence can be further developed. Researches have shown that individual IQ can be improved by more than 20% over the years with the right coaching. We nurture our children by improving their ability and mindset instead of worrying how smart they are. They work hard to learn more and grow smarter. A growth mindset thrives on challenges.
