As an IB World school, we provide a holistic, child-centred, constructivist programme, which engages children in play and inquiry-based learning.
We provide the optimum environment for progress in:
- Social development and emotional well-being
- Language development, including both oral and written language concepts and skills
- Intellectual development, including the development of a range of mathematical and scientific concepts and skills
- Aesthetic development
- Physical development
At SSIS we believe that each child enters our school already possessing a wide range of knowledge, skills, attitudes and understandings about the world and their place within it.
It is our aim to celebrate and build on each child’s strengths, identify areas for growth and development, and work in partnership with parents to create a learning environment where all children will feel safe, supported, and successful. When children join our school, they are placed in the appropriate grade level according to their age.
Within each grade level, all children are enrolled in homeroom groups led by experienced teaching teams and supported by classroom Ayis. Each homeroom team consists of an expatriate teacher and a Chinese teacher; who plan, teach and assess learning together. In addition, children receive instruction in Chinese, Visual Arts, Music, Library and Physical Education from specialist teachers. Learn more
