S.I.S. curriculum is based on international standards but more importantly parental input. The fact is our system is so progressive that our students are taught material and lessons ahead of their actual age and grade. And when it comes to our English lessons, our students are only taught by 100% native English speakers.
Our staff teaches the students what is expected of them while at school with regard to their interaction with their classmates and teachers so they develop positive social skills.
Each student enrolled at S.I.S. is encouraged to “think” for themselves rather than just being told “what to do” and “how to do it”.
The English lessons focus on developing each student`s ability to recognize the alphabet, hearing ability, and phonetic pronunciation. In addition, the consistent introduction of new words gradually increases a student’s overall English vocabulary.
S.I.S. students are taught how to write the upper case and lower case form of the alphabet.
The math lessons focus on number recognition, counting, addition and subtraction.
The reading program focuses on developing each student`s reading ability by having them first sound out words phonetically then moves onto to short sentences, then full sentences, and then finally onto the books designed specifically for each level.
Students will be assigned homework on daily basis as well as special weekend and monthly projects that allow parents to take part in their child’s education.
Students will experience various physical activities both inside and outside that will help develop their sense of balance, catching skills, running, jumping, and eye hand coordination.
Students will develop and express their sense of imagination by focusing on elements of art through drawing、coloring, tracing, painting, ceramics, and clay, and sculpture.
