We cater to a wide spectrum of student abilities, which is best understood by taking a closer look at who attends Galaxy Education:
Students who experience difficulty with mathematics, reading, spelling, writing, or English usually find their confidence and self esteem suffer. These students attend to have their performance raised to an age-appropriate level and beyond.
Those who are achieving moderately well, but wish to raise their level of achievement even further, attend for extension work.
Many students wish to attain, and then maintain, the highest level of achievement of which they are capable. Such motivated 'high flyers' attend to obtain on-going support during their studies.
