Elan Schools are a subsidiary organization of Bright Scholar Education Group that provide international enrichment programs as extracurricular training coursework for Chinese K-G8 local and international students. Elan's curriculum is designed to improve students’ language skills, thinking skills, problem solving abilities and knowledge of global culture. A core feature of any Elan School is their multi-colored libraries that are organised with between 6,000-10,000 audio and regular storybooks that are arranged according to their grade equivalent reading level (GE). Inside the library, a guided reading program is utilized with the assistance of Accelerated Reader and STAR Reading software on iPads which enhance students' learning and allows for advanced data collection. Alongside the guided reading program, Elan offers an Early Reader program that specializes in storytelling and phonics awareness, then more advanced Pre-Elan and Elan programs that provide literature and writing coursework to develop students to become independent English readers and master English as a lifetime language skill, enabling them to enter the best high schools and universities later in the USA and elsewhere.
