A Learning Environment That Promotes Active Engagement

A Learning Environment That Promotes Active Engagement

At Salahaldin International School (SIS), we believe that students learn best through natural, meaningful, integrated experiences relevant to their lives. Our classrooms are child-centered and active, and students are expected to take an active role in their learning. We encourage them to experiment and think for themselves, and to use a wide range of materials and resources, working individually and in small groups.

Learning by Doing

One of the key ways that students learn at SIS is by doing. We believe that laboratory experimentation in Science, hands-on manipulation of math learning resources, and application of Language Arts skills in activities such as letter writing, conversational practice, oral presentations, and reading for information and entertainment are all effective ways to promote learning.

Developing Higher-Order Thinking Skills

In addition to learning by doing, we also focus on helping students develop their higher-order thinking skills. We do this through a variety of classroom strategies, such as class discussions and debates, problem-solving activities, research and project work, student presentations, and encouragement in taking leadership roles.

State-of-the-Art Facilities

SIS has a variety of state-of-the-art facilities to support our students’ learning and development. These facilities include technology-ready classrooms, well-equipped science labs, music and art rooms, computer labs, department libraries, an auditorium, and outdoor sports courts.

A Commitment to Individual Growth

At SIS, we believe that individual growth is the goal. We accept students’ differences and provide them with the support they need to reach their full potential. We are committed to providing our students with a well-rounded education that will prepare them for success in college and beyond.
