Teaching and Learning at UIS
As Cambridge International School, Our mission is to contribute to society by enabling teaching and learning at the highest international levels of excellence.
We believe that education is most powerful when curriculum, assessment, teaching and learning align. We work together with parents for excellence in these areas, supporting learners grow academically and thrive as the adults of tomorrow.
Learning to learn
Research shows that good learning habits matter. We encourage our students to reflect on their learning so that they are able to build on experience and plan ahead. They will be confident, innovative and resourceful, secure in their knowledge yet open to new ideas and opinions. They will also be responsible – to themselves, and to others. These habits lay the foundations for productive study and employment, and are actively promoted and encouraged by Cambridge syllabuses and qualifications.
We encourage teaching practice that engages the students in their own learning, and we support our programmes with high-quality resources. Our view is that assessment should both prove and improve students’ learning, giving them focus, pace and challenge. We organise our l assessments in a way that maximises time for teaching and learning.
Discover an education that gives students the skills they need for life, helping them achieve at school, university and work.
Our curriculum sets a global standard for education, with programmes that stretch, challenge and inspire our students.
