Learning

Learning Defined

In order to best develop our students’ talents for the world in which they live, we define learning as an on-going process that is personal, social, and leads to the development of new, deeper understandings that can be applied creatively in the world beyond the classroom.

If we walked into a hospital today and the doctors utilized the same methods, tools, and spaces as they did 30 years ago, we would likely turn around and walk out the door... So why should this be any different in the context of education?

With this in mind, we believe students learn best when they:

…are appropriately challenged.

…have authentic voice and choice in what and how they learn.

…are authentically engaged in the context of their community and host nation.

…are encouraged to follow their curiosity and inquire into the world around them.

…are empowered to take risks and learn from mistakes in a supportive, caring environment.

These inclusive, Mission and Strategy-embedded beliefs drive all we do to develop the talents of every student in our care. Schedule a visit to see our inspiring learning community in action!
