Getting 5th Graders Ready for 'High School Entrance Exams'
You are finally here! Your
son/daughter has his/her heart set on attending a specific high school. The
parents often ask us: “So, what can you do to help them achieve this
goal?” Here are a few suggestions from H.O.P.E Centre to get you on your way.
Evaluation Reality is that competition is stiff in obtaining acceptance to preferred schools. Getting a head start is the first thing we can do in order to increase the chances of success. We offer early intervention dates in order to access the child’s strengths and weaknesses. We conduct a series of Canadian-based exams which evaluate your child on reading, language, mathematics, vocabulary, spelling, language/writing conventions, computation and numerical estimation. This will give parents an indication of where the student lies academically and set the guidelines for our team to initiate working with the student.
Demystifying and Clarifying High School Entrance Exams
Your child is doing well. Nonetheless, you are seeking that edge that he/she needs in preparation for entrance exams… we got it! Our qualified educators have what it takes to guide your child through this process all the while keeping calm and passing their exams. Our strength is in coaching students the proper techniques that help alleviate stress; therefore, eliminating the chances of blanking out during exams.

Our “Demystifying Entrance Exams Workshop” includes:
- Teaching child general techniques
- Working on coping with stress and/or anxiety
- Performing Canadian-based practice exams (review of curriculum)
- Strategies on reading comprehension
- Guiding them on time management
- Processing personalized interviews one on one
- A working booklet for them to keep
Does your child understand how to study material and how to stay organized in doing so? Through our experience, we have noticed that most students lack studying and organization skills. These skills are of major importance in order for an individual to succeed academically as well as on an everyday basis. This workshop allows students to specifically work towards acquiring and mastering essential organizational skills. The process results in the kids using these skills towards achieving personal and academic success.
