Educational Philosophy & Programme

Education Philosophy

We encourage students to adopt a growth mindset and set high expectations and standards by building upon prior knowledge. Students learn about practical goal setting and are encouraged to engage in meaningful and intentional study practices daily. Students are also provided with opportunities to reflect on their learning with the support of timely, targeted feedback. As a result, students are empowered and fully appreciate the purpose of their education.

International Education

Our international academic programme is concept and skills-driven so that students learn how to construct meaning and think critically about the knowledge and information they gain daily. This ongoing process is supported by assessment data, which informs how personalised teaching and learning methods are delivered.

Global Citizenship Programme

Global citizenship is a core value at our School. We seek to reinforce connections with our local and broader community while fostering meaningful intercultural appreciation, compassion, empathy, and environmental awareness. We strive to empower individuals to make a positive impact in their communities for themselves, their peers, and future generations.


EIS Learner Profile

We believe that each individual has the ability to make a difference, and every member of our community is responsible for improving the lives of others and the environment around them. During their time at school, we want our students to use their learning and experiences as a force for good.

Our learners are independent, collaborative, open-minded and creative. They possess the skills and courage to bring forth new ideas, challenge themselves, and contribute positively to their local and global communities.

Our students are well prepared for life after school and continue their education at leading universities across Europe, the USA, and the rest of the world.

Students Are Challenged Within a Bilingual Academic Programme That is Concept and Skills-Driven

The curriculum at our international school provides a 'toolbox' of necessary skills to help students succeed in an uncertain world. Rather than simply memorising content, it is critically important that all members of our student community are able to analyse, evaluate and expand their understanding to stay abreast of modern technology.
