Talented Teachers & Staff

EIS welcomes educators who share the values of our school community and wish to apply their international teaching experience. Our teachers are diligent and committed to every student. They also stay abreast of the latest pedagogical practices and work hard to maintain their knowledge by participating in regular professional training. At our school, teaching staff participate in International Baccalaureate curriculum workshops to keep them at the forefront of practices for the benefit of our students.

A core value of the school is sustained academic rigour; therefore, we recruit student-centred, experienced educators who are caring, creative, fun, and inventive. We invest in inter-school events and collaborative projects for staff so that they can share their expertise and explore new approaches to teaching and learning methods.
