Learning @ SIS

Playgroup (Early Childhood)
Using exploration and discovery as a way of learning, The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers, and Twos enables children learn to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills. 

Primary Years Program (ages 3-12)
The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning. Visit the International Baccalaureate Website for more information on the PYP Program.

Middle School Program (Grades 6-8)
Using the Understanding By Design Curriculum Framework, the program strives to equip students with all of the necessary skills to be successful, including learning how to learn. The curriculum guides students to a greater sense of international awareness, cooperation and service to others, and in turn, they come to understand the world as a whole and develop into contributing citizens of the world.

High School Program (Grades 9-12)
Emphasizing the teacher's critical role as a designer of student learning, the Understanding by Design Curriculum Framework helps teachers clarify learning goals, devise revealing assessments of student understanding, and craft effective and engaging learning activities. The High School Program includes the College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) courses in a variety of subjects. AP courses offer students challenging college-level course work giving students a taste of what college classes are like. Find out more about the AP courses on the AP Website.
