Like the Zhans, ninth-grader Zhang Zhao and her mother Xiong Minfang also cooperate well in Zhang's study.
"We gave enough freedom and rights for my daughter to make her own decisions as a junior high school student," Xiong told GT, "She got 23 awards as an eighth and ninth-grader. She applied and prepared all by herself. She has the ability to handle her own issues."
Zhang confirmed with GT that her independence is thanks to her parents' trust. As top ninth-grader in Shanghai, it can be recommended by the junior high school to apply for prestigious senior high schools before the standard admission exam, and Zhang carefully chose the schools she matches well with over the past semester.
"Regretfully, I didn't perform well enough in the mock exams before the official, united exams. So I had to be conservative in choosing my recommended school. But I still stick to my decision considering the context of the circumstances," Zhang said.
"I hope to study law in university after three years' study in senior high school. I will collect information in this field and aim to realize this dream in the near future," Zhang said.
For families with children of younger ages, parents usually make all the decisions. Zhang Hui, mother of Jiajia who just graduated from her primary school, spared no efforts in planning an ideal way for her daughter. She finally chose an international education-oriented junior high school for Jiajia.
"Looking back, choosing a school reflects the family's value and perspective toward society. What kind of person do you want your child to be? Try to find the appropriate school that matches your target," Zhang said.
