Stanford International School, Kathmandu
INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND With a new ideology that learning is a process of discovery and exploration of the facts, this school adopts new means and methodology in each of its academic and non-academic programs. The principle of learning by doing underlies every major feature in the educational system of this school. SIS ensures the close working relationship among the students, teachers and parents, the insistence on self-determination, the commitment to collaborative learning and the field-work which offers the students the chance to connect their academic pursuits with the actual jobs.
The school’s emphasis on creative approaches to dynamic learning extends with a resolved use of leading-edge technology. For the purpose, an innovative program to foster multimedia technology in the very primary level of education has been planned out. The academic programs are undertaken in a common educational frame where SIS insists that its students engage in the diversity of intellectual and imaginative life.
VISION SIS is an institution which strongly believes that their students must be socially conscious, creative and self-reliant. We encourage constructive criticism, and individual opinions from individual students keeping them at the focus in whatever we do. Our aim is to make our students knowledgeable and competent to face the world and be responsible citizens.
Beyond what is taught at school, our students will also acquire skills and motivation to continue in the learning process. We want them to grow up to be the global citizens with highly developed sense of social justice and personal commitment to contribute to the development of society.
ACADEMIC PROGRAM The design of the curriculum is one of the most sensitive and important aspects of teaching and learning. Therefore, it has technically been made up to date and up to the mark. Academic areas of study cross discipline, allowing students the opportunity to integrate areas of their personal interest. The acquisition of technique is the by-product, not the aim, of intellectual inquiry and artistic pursuit. The education is made distinctive, scholarly and wide-ranging by the application of modern technology. The educational materials are well planned and environment is perfectly maintained and outlined in such a way that the students find study anything like fun and enjoyment.
