Academic

EIS is authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organisation as an IB World School. Our IB programme is divided into the Primary Years Programme (Grades 1–5), the Middle Years Programme (Grades 6–10), and the Diploma Programme (Grades 11–12). The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The IB is world renowned for its high academic standards, commitment to multiculturalism and focus on developing skills that will prepare students for success in future educational endeavours and life in a global world. To learn more about the IB, visit www.ibo.org.

Educational Philosophy & Programmes

Educational Philosophy

Our teaching and learning environment is based on the philosophy and programmes of the International Baccalaureate organisation (and in particular the IB Learner Profile) as well as the school's Guiding Statements (Vision Narrative, Values and Learning Principles).

Academic Programmes

The diagram below shows how the school combines its own Learning Principles with the IB Learner Profile. The Students Outcomes represent our 'Promise' to Students. 

 

Students are challenged within an academic programme that is concepts-driven and skills-driven, which provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge 'tool box', to help them become successful in tomorrow's uncertain world. Rather than simply learning knowledge and content, we now know that it is critically important that students be able to analyse, interrogate and question knowledge in order to compete against automation and artificial intelligence. 

Our school was recently reauthorised by the IBO in April 2019 to provide the full continuum of IB programmes. This reauthorisation coupled with the full accreditation awarded by the Council of International Schools, provides third party evidence of the quality of our programmes.

In October 2020, Barista Training - a new Extra Curricular Activity - was launched with Grades 11 and 12. This initiative supports students preparing to go to university with employable skills for part time work in the café sector – giving them an opportunity to supplement funds while studying… and of course beyond. Led by Mr. Nat Paolone from Silvi Coffee Roasters, students will learn about the agricultural processes for coffee, coffee regions, coffee science, basic roasting techniques, various brewing methods, with a focus on barista skills. Students will be expected to make a minimum of 100 espresso-based drinks during the course to easily enter a café for employment. This weekly training programme will run across two terms and culminate in a Barista Training certificate, and a valuable skill that can be added to student resumes.
