Secondary 1 (S1): How to choose schools

Every child has different strengths and abilities. Here are some steps you can take to choose a suitable secondary school for your child.

1. Talk to your child about their strengths, interests and learning styles

Beyond academic results, help your child find out:

  • What they are good at (their strengths).
  • What they like, value and enjoy (their interests) by observing how they spend their time.

Explore schools that suit your child's learning pace. Look at the opportunities and programmes to develop their talents, strengths and interests.
