Internationally Recognised Education
The Ontario School curriculum is ranked among the world’s best in school education. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) the Ontario (Canada) education system has consistently ranked among the top 5 performing countries in the world. The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) awarded by the Ontario Ministry of Education, Canada, is recognised internationally for admission into university and professional studies.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) programme offers a unique academic rigour and emphasises students' personal development. The programme aims to do more than curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. The programme encourages both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.
Certified Canadian Educators
SIS educators are qualified teachers with degrees from recognised universities. The vast majority of our teachers are trained in Canada and receive annual certification by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT). SIS teachers bring a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies into and beyond the classroom to ensure the greatest learning opportunities for our students.
Learning Is Enjoyable
Learning in SIS focuses on your child as an individual, able to think reflectively, inquisitively and above all, to be a life-long learner. Everyone has a specific skill that they can harness and build upon, and our curriculum is delivered in a conducive and cognitively stimulating environment that will inspire your child to participate actively and put in their best efforts.
SIS has a comfortable and supportive environment that encourages every student to excel academically and personally. Each teaching group is small enough to provide individual attention and allow each student to be nurtured and developed to their full potential. Our engrossing and exciting learning environment allows students to make meaningful links between textbooks and the world beyond their classrooms.
Parents play an important role in their child’s progress in education, and good students become even better when their parents are involved and interested.
We encourage parent involvement in their children’s curricular and extra-curricular development as it provides opportunity for parents to collaborate with the teachers to share and shape their children’s progress. At SIS, events like ‘Meet Teachers Night’ and ‘Parents Hi-tea’ are held throughout the semester for parents and guardians to meet with teachers and administrators to work together, to bring about the best outcomes for our students.
Academically Stimulating and Engaging
All of SIS’ teachers are certified by professional teaching bodies. Their professional qualifications and classroom experience means that our teachers implement a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies, along with different types of assessment and evaluation methods to ensure all students experience exceptional learning opportunities. As parents, you can be confident that your children are in the care of highly qualified, dedicated and caring educators focused on helping every child reach their fullest potential.
SIS is equipped with state-of-the-art learning facilities - wireless internet (WiFi) connection across our premise, access to individual personal computers and classroom teaching using interactive whiteboards. Our e-learning course management system permits teachers to share daily assignments and learning resources with students and parents.
