Teaching Standards at SIS


“Salahaldin International School offers a rigorous, well-balanced course of study based on the British National Curriculum in English and Math and other state standards aligned with the National Curriculum in other subjects. The National Curriculum creates clear, consistent learning goals for what students are expected to learn, developing higher-order thinking skills. Curriculum guides in SIS are developed collaboratively based on these standards to guide daily instruction in the classroom.”

Key Competencies for Success

We believe that our students are the artists, scientists, thinkers, innovators and leaders of the future. They will be tasked with solving the problems of today, while imagining and creating a new tomorrow. Thus, competencies are critical for equipping students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they will need to successfully navigate their personal journeys in learning, living and working. In SIS, our curriculum is designed and aligned to a number of competencies to help students draw and build upon what they know, how they think and what they can do.

Personalized Assessment Techniques for Students’ Progress.


Assessment allows teachers and students to monitor progress towards achieving learning objectives. The school implements quizzes, chapter tests, projects, and other in-class assignments as formative assessment techniques in addition to 6 benchmark summative assessments throughout the year. The school also administers the MAP Growth test to measure students’ progress in math, reading, and language usage at the beginning of the academic year and at its end to make the necessary academic decisions. As a computer adaptive test (CAT), MAP is designed to adapt to each student’s level by refining the question selection based on the student’s response, which helps in accurately determining students’ strengths and weaknesses. Accordingly, personalized plans are chosen based on each student’s RIT score specified by the MAP Growth test.


A variety of instructional resources are implemented in the school to meet these standards, including standards-aligned Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) e-textbooks with its interactive features on Thinkcentral and Holt McDougal Online platforms, in addition to a rich on-campus library with over 6,000 books in different fields.


Technology is currently being used by teachers and administrators to promote effective classroom instruction and school management at SIS. All students have access to educational digital resources to support the curriculum and all parents have access to the student information system to monitor the student progress and communicate with teachers and administrators. The school uses employs a number of online educational platforms including:

Jupiter ED

Students use JupiterEd as a Learning Platform to access interactive and engaging content, track their progress, communicate with teachers, and stay on top of their homework.


It is a personalized learning platform with a comprehensive K-12 curriculum, individualized guidance, and real-time analytics.

Renaissance myON Reader

It is a student-centered, personalized literacy environment that gives students access to more than 6,000 enhanced digital books.

Khan Academy

The website provides a free personalized learning experience that is built on the videos and other features such as progress tracking, practice exercises, and teaching tools.

Apple and Google Classroom Apps

These education-friendly apps help facilitate learning for digital learners today. They bring the benefits of paperless sharing and digital collaboration to classrooms.



In 2017, SIS was one of the first schools in Egypt to officially get an Apple License and completely deployed the Apple management system for all students from grades 3 to 12. Starting with the 2017-2018 academic year, SIS began implementing an iPad education program with over 150 educational applications.



To ensure the holistic development of students, SIS offers a variety of co-curricular programs that match their needs and interests, including subject weeks, sports days and tournaments, after-school clubs, science fairs, field trips, in addition to in-school and international contests in different subject areas. Our students also won top positions in International competitions such as the Thailand Math competition, Genius Olympiad, and VIlipo.



Our students, as stated in SIS vision, are prepared to engage and contribute in a global society while being dedicated to traditional values. Therefore, the study of the Arabic language as well as Egypt’s culture and heritage are highly promoted in compliance with the requirements of the Ministry of Education. Students also have many opportunities to participate in national and cultural events organized by the school to preserve their cultural identity.



On the other hand, we take pride in embracing a global perspective by engaging students in learning about global issues in this interconnected world. Being a member of the Global Schools Program, we work on integrating the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), organizing Model UN conferences, celebrating UN international days, and participating in other activities that empower students as positive active global citizens.
