At ISU, we strive to achieve excellence in all that we do to inspire the unique potential of our students to contribute and thrive in a global society.
We offer a broad-based international curriculum that provides our students with opportunities to develop skills, knowledge and understandings to help them become internationally minded citizens. This is provided through the International Baccalaureate’s (IB) programmes; an international curriculum framework consisting of the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).
Central to an IB school is the development of the learner profile attributes. As outlined by George Walker (East is East and West is West 2010) for students this means
· Active participation
ISU learners strive to be inquirers, communicators and risk-takers. They are encouraged to show independence in learning, express ideas and information confidently, exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively and to approach unfamiliar situations and uncertainty with courage and forethought.
· Personal responsibility
ISU learners strive to be thinkers, knowledgeable, balanced, reflective, they are encouraged to develop their natural curiosity, develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines, take responsibility for their own actions, be able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations, be brave and articulate in defending their beliefs.
· Moral development
