Teaching & Learning at ISL
Our students begin their education with the IB Primary Years Programme - an inquiry-based curriculum organized around broad, interdisciplinary themes - and end it with the IB Diploma Programme - a challenging university preparation course. Our students and our staff's diversity provides us with a strong foundation for our international education.
Holistic Education begins with teachers who are academically qualified and passionate about supporting and inspiring their students to develop into respectful, well-informed and open-minded members of society.
We are intentional about employing teachers from across the globe, who collectively provide our students with unique and diverse learning experiences. All our teachers are IB-trained.
At ISL, we believe that continuous learning is vital both for our students and our teachers. All teaching staff members participate in annual Professional Development Programmes to further develop their professional and interpersonal skills.
The Student Support Services department offers two key services: Learning Support and ESOL Support.
Our Learning Support Department serves to support and encourage students facing challenges in their learning by ensuring that each student is given a fair opportunity to reach his / her full potential. The main areas of support target students who face barriers to learning presented by specific learning difficulties, learning gaps due differences in curriculum, developmental delays or an unstable pattern of learning.
ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
As a truly international school with a number of bilingual students, ISL offers the English for Speakers of other Languages (ESOL) Support programme at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, in both Primary and Secondary School.

Our students and staff continue to exercise COVID-19 safety practices such as wearing masks, physical distancing and frequent cleaning of hands, equipment and learning spaces.
