Things will often look difficult and the young may question their own abilities. In SIS we help our learners to understand adversity and persevere. We work with them very closely in their journey towards their own goals. We celebrate effort.

Analytical Thinking

Activities around subject content look at real life situations and problems. Students are taught to analyze before solving problem. They test predictions and generate solutions. They learn to plan, prioritize and act. Note taking is an important area of focus here.

Communication / Collaboration

Our learners are guided to communicate in a manner where others can understand their viewpoints. They learn to listen and appreciate other views. Students are also taught to communicate their ideas through diagrams, graphs, charts, and other digital tools widely used today. Students are given ample opportunities to work in teams that are often randomly put together. They learn about collaboration and leadership.


The many Inter-Disciplinary Projects (IBDP) in SIS require our learners to be creative and innovative.  They will apply their knowledge across many disciplines, testing and communicating their ideas. In the senior years students, through our Business Studies and Enterprise program, students undertake projects to explore entrepreneurship through their creative and innovative skills.
