WE ARE ALL COMMITTED TO

·NURTURING THE JOY OF LEARNING

We aim to help every learner feel intrinsically motivated, discover his/her interests, grow his/her passions, love what he/she is doing in class, and think of school as an exciting place not only to acquire knowledge and skills, but also where learning is fun.

 

·CREATING AN INVITATIONAL ENVIRONMENT WITH INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES

We offer our learners a safe, supportive, and an engaging learning environment within and outside school campus, that connects with the learners’ real life, and equips them with skills that ensure their success in school and life.

Our community members bring a broad range of cultural perspectives to the learning environment, and this diversity has the capacity to enrich teaching and learning in our school. Our teachers use a wide variety of strategies and global resources to work creatively with different cultural worldviews, and bring an international perspective into our curriculum.

 

·EMBRACING DIVERSITY THROUGH DIFFERENTIATION

We value diversity and the unique contributions each learner brings to the classroom and the school community. Through differentiation, we thrive to engage and motivate all learners in the classroom, thereby enhancing their learning. We believe that differentiation is the way of being in the classroom and not just a strategy that you use in your classroom today.

 

·BUILDING A CULTURE OF THINKING

In our quest to build a culture of thinking in our community, we aim to make thinking more visible in our endeavor to understand what, how, and why our children are learning. In parallel, we strive for the development of a professional community in which deep and rich discussions of teaching, learning, and thinking are a fundamental part of our teachers’ ongoing experience.

 

·PROMOTING GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

We aim to develop successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens, and effective contributors to society. We strive to accomplish that by enabling our learners to find out about their world for themselves. In addition, we support them as they learn to assess evidence, negotiate and work with others, solve problems, make informed decisions, and become more skilled in evaluating the ethics and impact of their decisions. We encourage our learners to think deeply and critically about what is equitable and just, and we prompt them to take action in real life situations.

 

·FOSTERING DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

We promote the responsible use of technology by instilling in learners digital ethics, etiquette, and knowledge about online safety, as they acquire digital skills and participate in today’s world.

 

·DEVELOPING A GROWTH MINDSET

We believe that fostering a growth mindset at the learner, teacher, and parent level is the foundation of every great achievement, and that the path to a growth mindset is a journey, not a proclamation. We aim to exhaust our search for practices to cultivate a growth mindset within our school by focusing our attention on the value of flexibility, adaptability and empowerment.
