PHILOSOPHY OF THE SCHOOL
We are committed to a child-centered curriculum that addresses the needs of international students and makes easy their transfer to other international and national schools. Our curriculum strives to incorporate the experiences, culture and perspectives of our students. We consider the all-round development of the individual and encourage curiosity, reflection, and questioning. We foster an understanding of human values, confidence, and responsibility to society. We aim for academic quality, with the understanding that all children have different abilities, skills and interests, which if developed and nurtured, will enable them to become mature, self-sufficient and productive members of their communities. We consider our valuable students to be assets in our school. Students, staff and parents meet each other with respect, acceptance and friendship.
