Our teachers, with over 70% holding masters degrees, are role models for lifelong learning. Their commitment to education and pursuit of knowledge is apparent in the expertise with which they develop their lessons plans.

A teaching staff coming primarily from the United States, Canada, Australia and England allows us to provide instruction which is student-centered, differentiated, stimulating and challenging. Our low student –teacher ratio coupled with our staff of teaching assistants translates into greater opportunities for individualized attention.

A paramount goal of today’s education should be to foster and extend student’s understanding of their place in the modern world, and provide them with knowledge and skills which can be transferred to their everyday lives and future endeavors.

Although based on North American standards and pedagogy, the SSIS curriculum strives to provide a ‘total’ international experience, not just the content for instruction. Our diverse students gain knowledge and understanding, develop skills, and refine attitudes and values through their interactions, connections and reflections which result from their total school experience. SSIS develops students for life with a developmental and progressive program that increases student independence for learning and achievement as students progress from early childhood through grade 12.
