How to use this guide John Catt’s Guide to International Schools has been specifically designed with the reader in mind. Now in its 17th year, this edition includes useful and informative information which is ideal for anyone looking for details of an international school, association, international curriculums, exams, tests and qualifications. There are clearly defined sections providing information for anyone looking at independent international education worldwide today. Are you looking for help and advice? Take a look at our editorial section (see pages 7 to 68). Here you will find articles covering a wide variety of issues you are likely to come across when choosing a school for your child. Each year we try to find a differing range of topics to interest and inform you about the uniqueness of independent international education. Perhaps you are looking for a school or college in a certain country? Then you need to look first in the directories (starting on page D303). Here you will find basic information about all the schools in each country (countries are featured in alphabetical order within

their relevant continent), complete with contact details. From this section you will be directed to more detailed information in the guide, where this is available. An example of a typical directory entry is given at the end of this article. School profile information is written by the individual schools, outlining the reasons why you should choose their establishment. Some of you may already be looking for a specific school or college. In which case, if you know the name of the school or college but are unsure of its location, simply go to the index at the back of the guide where you will find all the schools listed alphabetically. Page numbers prefixed with the letter D denote the directory section; those without, a full profile. In the appendix you will find up-to-date information about international curriculums and the examinations, tests and qualifications available (see page 511), editorial about international schools associations (see page 481), and contact details for Ministries of Education worldwide (see page 491).

GLOBAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES


Securing a better future for us all – how we can best support the young on the fast track to becoming the global citizens of tomorrow Dr Stephen Spurr, Group Education Director of Inspired, is optimistic about the beneficial impact of the best in international education I am writing this on the 75th anniversary of D-Day as world leaders assemble on the Normandy beaches. This is surely their moment to step back from parochial politics, to prove they are world statesmen and renew a commitment to international alliance. That international alliance which brought about the end of the Second World War and the still greater international alliance now necessary to address the global threats to human civilisation as a whole. But are they up to it? Can they stem increasing nationalism and populism? If so, they might begin to restore belief among the young. For just as today we remember with gratitude the huge debt owed to those who sacrificed their lives 75 years ago – so many of whom were 19 year-olds, the age of today’s school-leavers – we now see the young again leading the way in the battle to halt climate change, striving in their turn for a securer world order and future. Inspired by 15 year-old Greta Thunberg who, in refusing to attend classes until Swedish politicians took action to slow global warming, just a fortnight ago on 24 May over 1,000,000 school students in more than 110 countries staged strikes: a truly remarkable level of international alliance. Think too of Cameron Kasky who mobilised fellow high school students throughout America with #NeverAgain: kids push for gun control. ‘The adults know we are clearing up their mess’, he says;

while a fellow student adds ‘it’s as if they are saying we made this mess while continuing to spill soda on the floor’. So we must redouble our efforts as international educators. What better and more optimistic signal do we require that the current generation is internationally engaged, has learned the power of independent critical-thought, takes seriously their social responsibility and demonstrates an entrepreneurial determination to make the world a better place? Our duty now as ever is to support them as they fast-track into becoming committed global citizens and future world leaders. Are we up to it? And if so, how best to do so? In Inspired schools we define an educator ‘as a current leader who is in the business of developing future leaders’. For that surely is the essence and aim of the teaching profession. And so it is not too much to say that teaching creates all other professions – whatever the jobs – still to be invented – that our students will take up, evolve and re-invent in a world where the only certainty is change. At a time when education has never been more important, it is disappointing to see that the number of teachers is declining globally. We must do everything we can to reverse that trend by re-asserting the dignity of the profession among ourselves and convincing others also that to teach today is to create tomorrow’s leaders. In my introductory editorial to this excellent and authoritative guide to international education two years

In this time of technological acceleration, we must always remember that educators are still the best apps.

Inspired

ago, when reflecting on the right balance of skills and knowledge for the 21st century, I mentioned two wellknown books by Yuval Noah Harari as essential reading for teachers and students. This year I recommend his most recent work: ‘21 lessons for the 21st century’. He writes, in the chapter on education: ‘the best advice I could give a fifteen-year-old stuck in an outdated school somewhere in Mexico, India or Alabama is: don’t rely on the adults too much. Most of them mean well, but they just don’t understand the world.’ In response, as educators, we must commit more than ever to ensuring that our continuing professional development keeps our subject specialist knowledge, teaching skills and world-view contemporary and innovative. Harari continues: ‘So on what can you rely instead? Perhaps technology? That’s an even riskier gamble. Technology can help … but if it gains too much power over your life … you might increasingly find yourself serving it instead of it serving you.’ So – in the world of advancing AI and the algorithms that are watching all of us – where we go, what we buy, who we meet, monitoring our steps, breaths and heartbeats – we must ensure our students learn to understand not only what is appears on the screen but also the workings going on behind it, thus not only preparing our students for a digital future but helping them to shape it. Yet in this time of technological acceleration, we must always remember that educators are still the best apps. Our students will continue to rely on us as authoritative repositories of knowledge, as stable and encouraging mentors, transmitting to them the excitement of learning

and assisting with their personal development. Aristotle once wrote that children are naturally grateful to their parents for giving them life and should be still more grateful to their teachers for giving them the ‘good life’. That good life included ethics, character development, positive engagement with the community and understanding of others’ viewpoints; all of which contributes to ‘flourishing’ as a human being – which Aristotle called eudaimonia. That word has made a welcome return to recent educational discourse: in the teaching of resilience through mindfulness, to assist the young to face current examination and societal pressures – and, I suggest, to give them the mental and psychological strength for a future life where they will need continuously to re-invent themselves; in encouraging them to play their part in the community – schools are among the last communities in an increasingly fragmented world, so that contribution is doubly precious; and in the importance of intercultural understanding – that flows naturally from the best international education … the growing recognition of what it means to educate the whole person fully to flourish is a very positive trend. Yet in his latest book ‘How the world thinks’, Julian Baggini rightly reminds us that we should now extend our philosophical reach beyond the western tradition to which Aristotle belonged. So if we are to educate the young to understand themselves by understanding others, to become tomorrow’s global citizens and tackle – together – the big issues that face us all, a philosophybased course of global citizenship is the next imperative in learning to be truly and universally human.

A positive education for the future Jeremy House, Head of School at AMADEUS International School Vienna, Austria, looks at the international sector’s role in shaping education What is clear about the present, is that the rate of change is exponential. What that tells us about the future, is that to succeed, our students will require continual learning and adaptability. At AMADEUS International School, Vienna, we believe it is fair, and necessary, that what will be demanded of our young people can be expected of us. We must be innovators, action researchers, and ambassadors for bettering the practices and potential of a modern education. The international education sector has a great responsibility to lead the way in this respect. Of special importance to us given our small family oriented community, our Arts and Music Academy (AAMA), and our rich diversity (of more than 50 nationalities), are three developmental pillars which focus our efforts and create tremendous value to our students, teachers, families and wider community. These are 1) a positive education, 2) a creative education, and 3) an international education. Our Positive Education focuses the agenda on identifying, customising and embedding programs and practices which help young people learn to live

a full, happy, meaningful and healthy life; our Creative Education sets the agenda of leveraging the benefits of a Music and Arts inspired pedagogy and integrated curriculum for maximum growth; and, our International Education sets the agenda of truly capturing the value of cultural diversity for learning, for international mindedness, for personal growth, for global understanding and for communication and collaboration. Each pillar of an AMADEUS Education is enacted within our beautiful campus throughout the entire school. They permeate our thinking, our planning, our teaching and learning and our being. In what follows we introduce you to the first pillar, a Positive Education. ‘Institutions – governments, churches, industries, and the like – have properly no other function than to contribute to human freedom; and in so far as they fail, on the whole, to perform this function, they are wrong and in need of reconstruction.’ (C. H COOLEY, 1902)

AMADEUS International School

There is much to be gained from the deeper consideration of historical perspectives in new contexts. The quote above implies a higher moral purpose for institutions, above and beyond more individualised conceptualisations of what a school may offer. This is also congruent with the International Baccalaureate mission. The International Baccalaureate is universally respected for its rigour, international focus and clear purpose ‘to create a better more peaceful world through education’. Indeed the prolific growth of the International Baccalaureate to more than 4000 schools worldwide, might be considered to constitute a ‘reconstruction’ of the educational landscape in the direction Cooley had imagined. Deeper still however, the true realisation of such a vision rests firmly upon the capacity of institutions to enable young people to flourish. To flourish is a term translated from the Aristotelian concept of eudaimonia. To get quickly to the heart of what it means to flourish, one can indulge in a short philosophical thought activity. Consider a butterfly for a moment. How can we discern a good butterfly from a bad butterfly? Perhaps, a good butterfly is one that flies gracefully, that contributes to its ecosystem, that brings beauty into the world, and that will reproduce. In short, a good butterfly is one which expresses its fullest ‘butterfly-ness’. This butterfly could be said to be flourishing. Reasoning from here, a flourishing

­­­12

human is one who expresses one’s fullest ‘humanness’. That is, to reach ones highest possible (morally justifiable) physical, social, emotional and intellectual potential in this world. Building in no small part from this perspective, the Positive Psychology movement was born at the beginning of the 21st century. Leading this, Dr. Martin Seligman famously provoked that, ‘psychology has been concerned with misery for far too long’ and compelled his colleagues to reorient psychology toward understanding what makes humans flourish. In the (almost) two decades since this time, numerous academics and scholars have taken up and continued the task of deepening our understandings of the whatand-how of human flourishing. We now have a significant body of knowledge (led by academics including Carol Dweck on Growth Mindset; Angela Duckworth on Grit; Mihlay Csikszentmihalyi on Flow; Edward Diener on Subjective Wellbeing; Richard Ryan and Edward Deci on Self Determination; Christopher Peterson on Character Strengths, to name but a few) about teaching young people to thrive, and the ways in which institutions can enable wellbeing and support high-performance. Yet, most schools fail to overcome the inertia of their deeply entrenched systems and practices and hence cannot offer these lessons and experiences to their learners in a coordinated way.


AMADEUS International School

Our International Education sets the agenda of truly capturing the value of cultural diversity for learning, for international mindedness, for personal growth, for global understanding and for communication and collaboration.

A positive education is simply, the application of positive psychology in schools. Simple, not easy. The goal of achieving one’s greatest potential is common for all people and something particularly meaningful for educators. ‘Each person has to achieve it (flourishing) on the basis of his/her own individual efforts and creativity’ (Csikszentmihalyi 1990), however, there is much schools can do to promote and support its realisation. The most successful programs give careful consideration of the evidence for the positive psychology interventions they employ, to best practice teaching and pedagogical principles for learning, to school culture, to institutional openness and alignment with a philosophy of positive education, to the broader objectives of the organisation and other contextual factors. This is the approach at AMADEUS International School, Vienna, as we pursue this pillar of our education for the future with your child in mind. Above all, having your child in an environment with a deep commitment to positive education gives you confidence that in addition to (or indeed in support of) an outstanding academic preparation: • Your child will have a strong theoretical and practical understanding of what it means to flourish, and strategies for promotion of one’s wellbeing. • Your child will have a deep self-awareness and knowledge of one’s character strengths, with the ability to leverage these for flow and deep work. • Your child will foster many of the dispositions of kindness (gratitude, altruism, mindfulness, compassion and empathy) throughout their education. • Your child will foster many of the dispositions of highperformance (hard work, resilience, determination, organisation and resourcefulness) throughout their education. • Your child will always be treated with respect, dignity and worth; as somebody full of potential in this world.

• Your child will be empowered, and learn to accept the responsibilities which come with this; capable of positive influence, leadership and agency in diverse contexts. • Your child will explore their meaning, purpose, and passions, and be encouraged to pursue them with zest, positive emotion, engagement, and in the company of positive relationships. Irrespective of where the future takes us, there is little doubt that these skills, learnings and habits will be instrumental in any measure of the success and/or quality of the life we are free to lead.

Do all international schools offer an international education? International education has evolved and so too must schools Small changes can create big results. Ask teachers Timothy Jones, Kaye MacIver and Anita Burgess, who by adjusting their teaching to cater to students struggling with English as a first language, have recognised and responded to a major shift taking place in international education. A development they would not have identified or appreciated without deeply studying the sector through the Master’s in International Education degree programme by King’s College London. The opportunity to study the master’s course is offered exclusively to all Nord Anglia Education employees, regardless if they are part of the teaching staff, as part of ongoing professional development studies. A two-year course, the MA International Education combines theory, evidence and opportunities for participants to share and learn from one another’s experience of working in international schools. Timothy Jones, a teacher from the British College of Brazil, has been earning his MA International Education

from King’s College London through Nord Anglia Education’s professional development program. This experience has transformed his understanding of education in this sector. “As a relatively new field of research within education studies, I feel like I am involved in the vanguard of research and understanding the context in which international schools work. The course shines a light on international schools from an institutional perspective, as well as that of the students, staff and families who are the stakeholders of international schools,” states Mr. Jones. Mrs MacIver, Assistant Head of Secondary at the British Vietnamese International School in Hanoi, said she wants to design a curriculum that works for her students: “I need to see how I can support them more effectively in the classroom. This is what parents want from our schools.” Ms Burgess, an English teacher at The British School of Beijing Sanlitun, said she saw a similar issue in her classroom. After undertaking the master’s programme,

‘As a relatively new field of research within education studies, I feel like I am involved in the vanguard of research and understanding the context in which international schools work. The course shines a light on international schools from an institutional perspective, as well as that of the students, staff and families who are the stakeholders of international schools.’ Timothy Jones, The British College of Brazil

she is also focussing on how to better teach her students English as an additional language. “I have changed my every day teaching to include teaching an enhanced set of vocabulary specifically for EAL learners,” Ms Burgess said. “I now have a greater understanding of their needs.” It also encourages participants to rethink both the challenges and prospects they face within the context of technological advancements, cultural diversity and globalisation – three key areas that affect the education offering international schools must provide as the demographics and needs of students entering NAE schools change. Nord Anglia Education chief executive Andrew Fitzmaurice said the response from staff who have completed the course was so positive he decided to enrol himself into the programme as part of the third cohort. Not only did he want to experience a core part of NAE’s professional development offering, he said he wanted to better understand and appreciate what teachers experience too. “Any broader understanding of the environment you’re operating in is going to be helpful,” Mr Fitzmaurice said. Having acquired a large amount of practical experience in his role over the past 16 years, Mr Fitzmaurice said studying topics that delve into how the curricula is designed and what skills will be required by 21st century learners, has helped him consider the rapid growth of the international education sector and what NAE can do to help train teachers to keep pace with it. “It’s thinking about what we are doing to make sure we not only have the right teachers, but how are we helping to develop them,” Mr Fitzmaurice said.

Jason Ng, a mathematics teacher at the British International School of Boston agrees. “The course has made me understand more about the students and families we cater for, whether they are expatriates, locals or globally mobile families,” he said. Those who apply for the master’s must study alongside their jobs, which includes participation in online readings and activities up to 10 hours a week, as well as webinars that are scheduled together with other staff in similar time zones. Two four-day face-to-face residentials also take place, giving the cohort from various NAE schools and offices the opportunity to meet. “You can’t deny the benefits of being able to meet and interact with other Nord Anglia employees across the globe. I have been able to learn more about international schools simply by talking to colleagues about their own experiences within the organisation,” Ms Burgess said. “I met so many inspiring people. People I will always be in contact with,” Mrs MacIver said. Ms MacIver, Ms Burgess and Mr Ng are part of the first cohort of this International Education master’s programme. The entire group, which achieved a 100 per cent pass rate from the course, will be celebrating their graduation at a ceremony in London this month. Meanwhile, a third group of students are already into the swing of things, having successfully completed their first semester and their first residentials event at KCL last month. “The course has provided insight into an array of topics being researched within the field of international education and offers scope for participants from different areas of the school to learn and pursue research into areas that reflect their personal interests, profession or background,” says Mr. Jones.

What makes a great teacher? Some perspectives from the classroom at the British International School Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam “The great joy of being a teacher is that we are in the business of transformation.” These are the words of Sean O’Neill, Deputy Head Teacher at the British International School, HCMC, and he is right. Whether they are small transformations over a long period of time or an overnight discovery; “the great joy of being a teacher is to witness those transformations on a day to day basis.” The fact is that your child’s teachers will have a lasting impact on their world. The right person can uncover new interests, and give students the confidence to chase a bright future. Our teachers come from all around the world, but they all share a belief that an inspired student can achieve amazing things. Teaching is one of the most complex jobs a person can do. It demands a broad knowledge of subject matter, curriculum, and standards; enthusiasm, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; knowledge of discipline and classroom management techniques; and a desire to make a difference in the lives of young people. With

all these qualities required, how do you find the right teacher for your child? Great teachers have a love of learning All international schools claim to hire high quality teaching staff, and the best schools certainly attract the best teachers available. But schools are like any other organisation: they need to nurture their staff if they truly want to bring the best out of them. Don’t be afraid to ask what programmes a school has in place to help the teachers to refine and improve their teaching practice on the job. At the British International School, HCMC, our programme of continued professional development (CPD) ensures that our teachers are kept up to date with the latest teaching methodologies and ideas. It is expected that teachers will proactively continue to develop their professional knowledge whilst they are employed at the school. They are offered a wide range

We offer the chance for experienced, passionate teachers to advance their knowledge in an exciting new environment. Great teachers aren’t just inspiring, they are inspired Ambition. Drive. Understanding. Inspiration. These qualities define the best teachers, and in turn, ensure that students love going to school every day. However, to continually present material in an enthusiastic manner and inspire students to learn independently, our teachers need to be inspired themselves, which requires innovation. Great teachers don’t follow education trends; they think ahead and develop meaningful and sustainable approaches to educating young people. This includes partnerships with organisations that can offer genuine value to your child’s education. At BIS HCMC we collaborate with pioneering institutions such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Juilliard School, developing programmes that will provide your child with the skills, qualities and outlook to create their own exciting future. Great teachers don’t pretend to have all of the answers Effective teachers use facts as an entry point, not an exit point; they ask “why” questions, look at all sides and encourage students to predict what will happen next. They ask questions frequently to make sure students understand. They tailor the learning in order to engage the whole class, and they don’t allow a few students to dominate the class. Great teachers keep students motivated with varied, lively approaches to learning. Sometimes this can mean exploring unfamiliar surroundings outside of the classroom setting. School expeditions are designed to build confidence and independence, broaden students’ perspective and expose them to different cultures, people and ideas. Through our comprehensive expedition programme here at the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City, we offer unique experiences that are specifically designed to provide continuity with classroom learning. Each one is carefully planned to provide a range of age-appropriate but challenging opportunities for the development of personal qualities such as leadership, independence, collaboration and some physical endeavour. Importantly, our expeditions are also designed to encourage respect for different cultures through service-learning and activities.

Great teachers care not just about results, but about the people that their students become Great teachers are warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring, in other words, they lead by example. Teachers with these qualities are known to make themselves available to students and parents who need them. You will often find them running co-curricular or extracurricular clubs in subjects that aren’t always linked to their specialist area. They are involved in committees and activities around the school, and they demonstrate an unwavering commitment to their students. In an outstanding school, this sort of dedication comes from beyond simply teachers, it comes from the support staff too. At BIS HCMC, we have a dedicated team of pastoral staff that contribute to the all-round development of your child. Between the academic team and the support staff, our students are encouraged to ask questions, demonstrate intellectual curiosity and a willingness to respectfully question what they are being taught. Only the best schools will be cultivating these vital skills for success. Great teachers are transparent A parent’s involvement in their child’s schooling helps to reinforce the learning delivered by the teachers. Strong communication between parents and teachers is essential, and can actively influence your child’s success. Great teachers reach out to parents through conferences and regular written reports home. They don’t hesitate to make direct contact with a parent if they are concerned about a student. At BIS HCMC, we go even further by opening up our classrooms, so that parents can experience their child’s learning as it happens. Further still, parents are involved in the design and decisions made with regards to developing facilities so that they meet the needs of our diverse community. There is no definitive checklist for ‘what makes a teacher great’, but at British International School, HCMC, we know that we have great teachers. “We have people coming into this building every day and each of them are trying to be their best.” Sean O’Neill said: “There’s a culture of innovation, a culture of vision and a culture of connection. A school is just a series of human connections, and that is the most important part of being a great teacher.”

Six things to know before studying abroad Eugene Tan ’18 is from Malaysia and studied the IB Diploma at EF Academy Studying abroad is exciting, there’s just no other way to put it. My time at EF Academy in the UK has been the best of my life. I’ve met people from all over the world, gained experiences unlike any I’ve experienced before and made unforgettable memories. My circumstances were fortunate as I had a lot of support from my parents and my local EF Academy admissions office. However, there are some things I wish I’d known at the start of my journey. In this article, I’ll pass on some of the top tips I’ve collected that can help you prepare to start your own adventure abroad. 1. Choose where to study Countries are just like people, no two are exactly the same. When you’re making friends, you’ll most likely find it easier to connect with people who are compatible with you. In choosing a country or place where you’ll spend a significant amount of your time living and studying, compatibility is important too. You’ll want to do some research. First, learn more about the country’s language, landscape, culture, religion, food and more. This way you’ll know whether it’s right for you and there will be fewer surprises after you arrive. It’s always best to know

­­­22

what you’re getting yourself into and a little research will ensure you feel confident in your decision. 2. Consider the weather Always research the climate and average temperatures of your chosen place of study. I am originally from Malaysia, a country with a 37 degree Celsius average temperature all year round. So, studying at EF Academy on the South Coast of England, was a bit of a change. The weather here can be anything from brilliant sunshine and warm days on the beach to cozy days inside when it gets cool. I went from needing only light shirts and shorts to needing my wardrobe to suit some colder weather too. If you get to know the weather in your destination country, you’ll have an easier time packing the appropriate clothes before you set off. 3. Take responsibility for your finances This may not be something that’s constantly on your mind when your parents are around, but while studying abroad, budgeting is very important. Make sure your bank knows where you’re going before you leave. If you don’t, you might find they decline your payments when you’re out trying to buy some coffee!


EF Academy Another thing you should be aware of is the current exchange rate between your home country and the country you’re moving to. In the past, it took me forever to get used to a new currency, and it was embarrassing sometimes fiddling with my wallet in shops trying to find the right coins. Make sure you’re in control so you’ll be confident in this kind of situation. Learning to be independent is a crucial part of studying abroad. 4. Prepare your electronic devices Phones and laptops are essential as most schools nowadays are being more electronic by introducing Google and other learning programs into their system. If you don’t have a laptop, you’re going to find it difficult to type up that 1,000-word essay on your phone screen or create a presentation on your tablet. Get in touch with someone from your new school to ask about the electronic equipment you might need for your schoolwork. This way when you arrive, you’ll be ready to start studying straight away. 5. Make a note of emergency numbers If you don’t already know it, get to know the emergency numbers of the country you’re moving to. You never know when you’ll need them, and it’s important to be prepared. You’ll also need the emergency numbers of your new school so there’s someone you can call if you

get lost or something has happened to you or your bags at the airport upon landing. Although it’s good to memorize numbers, be sure you also have them physically written down on a piece of paper in case you forget. It’s important to record them on paper and not just on your phone in case you run out of battery. 6. Don’t worry about culture shock By following these tips, hopefully, you won’t have a problem with culture shock. If you’ve got a good idea of where you’re going and what to expect, you should start to settle in. However, if you do feel homesick, keep an open and positive mind and make sure you ask for help. Part of being a young adult is taking responsibility for yourself, and this includes seeking out support when you need it. At EF Academy, I never experienced homesickness, but there are a few things you can do just in case. Bring along some comfort food from your home country and remember to call your family or friends from home regularly. Keep in mind that no matter how much you miss home, the next holiday is just around the corner. Enjoy your time abroad because you’ll miss it when it’s over! Finally, students who study abroad are given the opportunity to grow in confidence and become independent thinkers. So, don’t be nervous! This is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make, guaranteed. Good luck!

What is the purpose of school? Sometimes simple questions require complex answers, write John Hopkins and Thomas Nolan of Harrow Beijing in China The extrinsic reasons for schooling are often cited – to prepare young people for adulthood, develop citizenship and social responsibility, preparation for university and the labour market. Intrinsic values such as developing intellectual curiosity and capacity and personal growth are also important. At Harrow Beijing, we acknowledge all of this in pursuing our school mission of ‘Leadership for a Better World’ through the vehicle of our ‘Leadership in Action’ programme. In our ‘Leadership in Action’ programme, students learn by experience and develop their passions through being exposed to a wide range of high quality extracurricular activities. These activities are divided into four different areas, the Arts, Leadership and Service, Sports and the Super Curriculum. The Arts offer students a unique way of learning, knowing and experiencing the world around them. It encourages them to find their own voice and way

­­­24

of expressing themselves and this in turn can then be applied to all areas of their lives. Students may engage in the arts in a variety of ways, and we encourage broad participation. We place great focus on collaborative experiences and place equal value on all contributions from the painter to the singer and the poet to the sculptor. Each person has a role that is valued and supported. Leadership and Service is another key area whereby students are given the opportunity to live the School Mission of ‘Leadership for a Better World’. We believe in the concept of leadership as service and feel that the best way for our students to engage with this value is through experiential learning. We endeavor to give our students a wide range of options to work with our community offering help to those in need but also acknowledging the tremendous amount to be learned through interaction with people from diverse backgrounds. Every week, our students visit orphanages to care for the children


Harrow Beijing there, teach children from local schools English, coach younger children from local schools in football and provide marketing and translations services to charities in developing countries. Each and every day we are also conscious of the benefits that doing this work brings to our own children in terms of their sense of community but also their awareness of how fortunate they are and the satisfaction that extending help to others can bring. Sport is a wonderful platform for learning. Learning to win and lose, to lead and be led, to push and pull, to think as part of a team, how to win with grace and when to acknowledge defeat are all lessons that children learn on the playing fields. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to enjoy sport, regardless of their ability. By devoting time and attention to those who are less confident as well as to those with more experience, we develop life skills that bring resilience and success beyond school life. In our Super Curriculum, Harrow Beijing aims to develop the intellectual capacity and curiosity of our students beyond the measurable outcomes of examination results. Unlike examination syllabi, here learning is limitless and we believe in offering all students a counterpoint to the careful rigour of examination preparation, where they are encouraged to think critically and creatively and enjoy the freedom to develop a love of learning. We aim to provide a broad range of opportunities which promote ‘deep’ rather than ‘strategic’ learning, and where students are able to apply their learning experientially to real world issues. Underpinning and guiding all of these activities, and indeed all of our work as a school, is Harrow Beijing’s School Mission of ‘Leadership for a Better World’. The six leadership attributes are contributing positively to community, applying knowledge with compassion, solving problems collaboratively, solving problems creatively, making just choices and facing challenges with determination. These values are taught explicitly and implicitly in our ‘Leadership in Action’ programme. Students in sports games draw on their ability to face challenges with determination and make just choices when devoting their time to the service of others. They contribute positively to their own community by recycling materials through the school and solve problems creatively organising concerts and other events to raise money for charity. Students solve problems collaboratively in the many group projects they take on to benefit the community and apply knowledge

with compassion when teaching others to speak English. Above all they learn that leadership is about service, service to your friends, service to your fellow students and service to your community. This is Leadership for a Better World. So to return to our initial question – what is the purpose of education? At Harrow Beijing, we have a clear vision and a set of values that support this vision. We believe that each student should realise their potential through exposure to a wide range of learning activities, be a leader in the area they love and realise that to lead is to serve.

Providing a world-class education in a unique city Getting the right school for children is often the most important decision for every family. Thankfully, Hong Kong is home to some of the best schools in the world. A system on a mission “At ESF, we are on a mission: to unlock potential and to help every student to be the best that they can be, and to help them become great people, the leaders of the future,” said Adam Hughes, ESF Director of Education. “Walk into any of our classrooms and your will see students working together to problem-find, not problem solve. You will see them grappling with complex issues and coming up with solutions. And you will see them flipping effortlessly between working independently and collaboratively with others.” “Our teachers teach students where to look, but they don’t tell them what to see. That is the future of education – and it is happening in our schools right now.” Adam Hughes, ESF Director of Education

The English Schools Foundation (ESF) is the largest international school organisation in Hong Kong. For over 50 years, ESF has been at the heart of Hong Kong life, providing world leading teaching and learning to thousands of students in their 22 schools. Starting from as early as six months, ESF students can transition seamlessly from playgroup to kindergarten and then from primary and onto secondary. They also offer award winning after school sports and language programmes. Everything that your family requires, under 22 roofs. Students from around the world can transition into the ESF school system easily, thanks to the fact that they have adopted the International Baccalaureate (IB) at every level – from kindergarten to secondary. The IB has been designed specifically to meet the needs of learners from any cultural background. It is a system based on encouraging students to solve problems, analyse complex issues and to work with their peers. The final qualification, the IB Diploma, is accepted by universities across the world.

­­­26

World class results Global league tables of education systems will regularly include ESF in their upper reaches. The results that ESF students receive are amongst the best in the world. “We understand that academic results are hard currency. It is by getting good grades that students can go on to the best universities and, ultimately, onto their chosen career path,” says Belinda Greer, ESF CEO. “So, while we work hard to help students develop their skills, we never lose sight of just how important it is to ensure academic research stays at the top of our priority list.” And the results speak for themselves. ESF sits well above the global average for all of the major qualifications. And while those who get the very top marks often grab the headlines, it is the sheer volume of success at all levels that really sets ESF apart from any other education system. Exceptional teachers ESF scours the world for the very best teachers. Last year well over 4,000 people applied for a teacher position, but only less than 100 of those applications were successful. Making the grade at ESF is a sign that you are a teacher at the very top of your class.

Having scored the maximum 45 points in the IB Diploma examination in 2018, she attributed her success to her teachers. “I think the main reason I got a 45 was because of my teachers and because of how helpful and resourceful they were,” she shared. “I have the most supportive friends, family and teachers who have all helped me pass through the stressful times and I cannot thank them enough for that.” Christine is now in the University of Hong Kong studying Law. Leo Kim Leo from ESF South Island School was another IB top scorer in 2018. He is now studying information science at Cornell University in the United States. He said it was ESF that defines who he is today. “The characteristics and personalities, strengths and weaknesses I developed from an ESF environment allowed me to become the person I am today,” he shared. He said it is important to link your hobbies with your academics. “If you just keep working hard and never give up your passion, I think you can always find a link between something you love and something you’re good at,” he said. Many of our alumni have become prominent figures in the community because of the significant contribution they have made to the society.

International schools – what’s the difference? Stephanie Winterford, History teacher and Special Education Coordinator at Bordeaux International School in France, asks a question of definition In south-western France, several options exist for families wishing to enroll their child(ren) in an international educational setting. Many schools offer an ‘international’ or ‘European’ section, whereby additional lessons are taught in English (or another European language, often Spanish or German); notably, however, the defining characteristic intended to represent this element of ‘internationalism’ is often limited to foreign language learning. In Bordeaux, a further option exists: Bordeaux International School celebrated its 30th year in 2018; I’ve been a teacher here since 2013. CIS accredited, BIS welcomes students – French and international – from ages 3-18, with a bilingual Primary and Middle section and a Secondary section that offers the Cambridge IGCSE/ A-Level exams.

­­­28

The similarities between the schools mentioned above – the state schools offering International Sections and then BIS, a recognised international school – serve to highlight the ambiguity surrounding the criteria needed to justifiably declare a school ‘international’. As migration increases, even the smallest local public schools are becoming multilingual: parents and students speak two or more languages, and local public-school events demonstrate a vibrant feeling of a successful – indeed embraced – capacity for cross-cultural exchange. So, what makes an international school ‘international’? In 2009, the IASL (International Association of School Librarianship) offered the following (now widely referenced) international school criteria checklist:


Bordeaux International School 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Transferability of students’ education across international schools A moving population (higher than in national public schools) Multinational and multilingual student body An international curriculum (i.e. IB – DP, MYP etc.) International accreditation (e.g. CIS, IBO etc.) A transient, multinational teacher population Non-selective student enrollment Usually English (or bi-lingual) as language of instruction

Still – with the increasing number of public schools offering (for example) the IB programme, many of these characteristics could apply to any number of local schools. But international schools are different, and, after nearly two decades of teaching in six countries, two items from the list stand out for me: numbers two and six. Certainly, for our small school in Bordeaux, it is these variables that distinguish us from other schools. Indeed, they present the greatest challenges – as well as the greatest opportunities. BIS is a small school. With an average of 150 students from preschool up to A-Level, the constantly shifting student population often emphasises our size. When students arrive from very large establishments in Asia or North America, the small size of BIS usually represents one of their first big adjustments. Certainly, from an educator’s standpoint, teaching a group of four at IGCSE- or A-Level has substantial benefits; from a social standpoint, however, this can be tough on the kids who are used to a much larger peer group from which they develop their friendships. On top of this, we often have students joining us for only a year or two, meaning that even once social connections have been made, face-to-face, daily connections can be fleeting. This constantly changing student population is typical of so many international schools, whose entire social atmospheres can change – frequently – based on the learners arriving and leaving. But the challenges are not without their advantages. At BIS, extremely small class sizes foster a learning environment where individualised, differentiated teaching is easier to ensure; a benefit of this, in turn, is that students tend to stay in touch after they’ve left the school. Our size – specifically, the flexibility this allows – means teachers can invite students who aren’t taking their class to sit in on a lesson, for example, simply because the student demonstrates interest in the topic.  

I consulted with some students on this and was happy to learn their thoughts. One student suggests that the impermanence itself serves to create ties: Kyle (A-Level; Singapore) expresses that a “sense of community exists precisely due to the shared impermanence of one’s time in the school as well as a common understanding of our peers’ situations, having come to France for a short time”. Of course, the transient population isn’t limited to students: our teachers come from approximately 10 different countries (depending on the year). While this mightn’t compete with educator diversity in large international schools, it is not to be underestimated!  Indeed, this demographic marks a stark contrast to even the largest local schools – especially in France – where strict citizenship requirements must be met before a teacher may even register to sit the exams needed to become a public-school teacher. Cultural diversity among teachers means that qualifications, experience and teaching philosophies are different – this is a good thing. Especially considering the fluid student population, staff must work to maintain a level of uniformity, ensuring simultaneously that the promotion of a global mindset is included in lessons and interactions with students. This can be tough – but also very rewarding. Staff diversity presents excellent learning opportunities. Virtually all international educational travel and student exchanges at BIS are made possible as a result of teachers’ experiences and connections with schools in different countries.   BIS runs a bi-annual educational trip to Canada, for example, as well as trips to Spain and Wales. We have a partner school in Senegal with which projects are organised – all of these are direct results of teachers taking advantage of contacts in their countries of origin. There is intrinsic value in the personal element brought to these connections and activities; cultural diversity among educators is, arguably, among the most predominant defining elements of a bona fide international school. As multiculturalism becomes ubiquitous, it will become more difficult to pinpoint the unique differences offered by international schools.  While many classrooms seek to integrate foreign students in hopes of assimilating them into local society, perhaps the stand-out trait of international schools, then, will be the opportunity they present to students to bring their different cultures into the school while developing students’ views and experiences to extend outwards.

Internationalism, Individualism, Integration How principles shaped almost 100 years ago still hold true for a school that nurtures ‘positive disrupters’ In the heart of Switzerland, you can find a Swiss international day and boarding school that accepts boys and girls between the ages of 6-19, known as Institut Montana. You may be surprised to learn that this pre-alpine countryside marked the cornerstone for various famous politicians, scientists, entrepreneurs and filmmakers and continues to do so for almost 100 years now. For example, John F. Kerry (pictured opposite), an American politician who served as the 68th United States Secretary of State from 2013 to 2017 and the Democratic nominee in the 2004 presidential election attended our school which he details in his book, Every Day is Extra. There was also Willem P.C. ‘Pim’ Stemmer, a Dutch scientist and entrepreneur who invented numerous biotechnologies and DNA shuffling, now referred to as molecular breeding. He was honored with the Charles Stark Draper Prize in 2011 for his pioneering contributions to directed evolution which won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2018. Georges Nicolas ‘Nick’ Hayek Jr., a Swiss-Lebanese businessman, followed in his fathers footsteps by not only also attending

­­­30

Institut Montana Zugerberg but also by taking over the role of CEO from his late father for the Swatch Group, a Swiss manufacturer for watches and jewellery. But what exactly is it about our academic institution that helps students lay down the foundations for a successful future? The answer lies in our history and founding values of internationalism, individualism and integration. Going back in time On May 3, 1926, the doors of Institut Montana were first opened by educator and peacemaker, Dr. Max Husmann. He spent a great deal of time trying to find the perfect location in Switzerland that was not too far from an economically bustling city but was also surrounded in nature to allow students to thrive, and that is what he found on Mt. Zugerberg, in the city of Zug. A few years before, Husmann had witnessed the atrocities of World War I and how it devastated Europe much less the world. He saw how alliances, imperialism, militarism and nationalism all came to play a role in ‘the


Institut Montana war to end all wars.’ He believed that if he could instead create a school where future generations could study alongside others from different parents of the world, he would be able to create a society of global citizens who were respectful and open-minded and would thus be able to maintain world peace. He believed that if a child can grow up on the principles of internationalism, individualism and integration, they would be able to understand someone from another culture, religion and race and this mutual understanding would benefit society as a whole. In the end, opening up a pathway of success for them. Internationalism To see the world through the lens of others, students must be surrounded by people from all different walks of life. When you learn how and why a country, political system or even an individual works and thinks the way it does, then you would have the emotional intelligence to make educated and well-thought out plans and decisions. Thus, students at Institut Montana study in a close-knit environment of over 40 nationalities to learn about their classmates’ background while they share theirs. This way, students are exposed to new cultures, opinions and ideas that they may have not even considered before and to get a wider view of issues and potential solutions. Switzerland is the ideal location with its longstanding history of neutrality, diplomatic stands, safety and stability to ensure the optimal setting for learning and understanding. Individualism For a student to reach their full potential, they must receive personalized care, attention and support, especially given that fact that no one learns the same way. Everyone has their own unique capabilities and talents and these strengths can be fostered under the right guidance. Whether a student wants to become a doctor, artist, businessman or anything else, our school helps turn goals into reality by being a place to grow. Students in turn develop into well-rounded individuals who bring the best version of themselves to university and beyond. Integration Whether it is settling on a business deal, visiting a new country or being in a relationship, students are taught how to adapt and deal with various environments and life in a holistic way. They become flexible, versatile and adaptable. They are equipped with a plethora of

resources that enable them to navigate through a vast sea of disruptions and changes that come through life experiences and an ever-changing world. They are fearless, innovative and know how to tackle any challenge head-on. Shaping the world in their own way These principles laid the ground work for Institut Montana and still hold true after almost 100 years, which we can see with our alumni community. Take Tom Hannan, another fellow student. He believed early on in the potential of a scientifically supported, digital marketing world and was one of the first employees of Yahoo! and Google in Switzerland. After becoming a marketing specialist thanks to these companies, he founded his own digital marketing agency, Webrepublic, and even won the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year 2017’ award in the service/trade category by Ernst and Young. Geza and Andre Scholtz, two brothers from our school, made history in January 2013 by being the first humans to navigate the 560 km Magellan Strait from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean on kiteboards. Their goal was to not only set a world record but to push the sport to a new level – expedition kiteboarding. Thus, these values clearly instilled in our students a sense of believing that nothing is impossible. To know a future with no borders, be it physically or even mentally. The students that come out of Institut Montana are positive disrupters that contribute to society with their unique experiences and global mindset.

Glocalization – when students attend an international school at home Michael Maniska, Head of School at the International School of Los Angeles, on the impact of an emerging trend in enrolment Typically, when people consider international schools, they can default to thinking about schools that serve Anglophone students who are away from their home country. In general, such schools are characterized by expatriate communities and predominantly Englishlanguage instruction. But there are different types of international schools; ones that go beyond servicing the needs of an expatriate enclave seeking portability of educational experience across different settings and countries. Increasingly, international schools can find themselves welcoming students who are ‘at home’ just as much (if not more so) than students who are not. The International School of Los Angeles is one such school. Our school is 40 years old this year, and we are proud of how far we have come, from a modest initial enrolment of 7 students to 1,100 today. As we reflect on this milestone, so too have we observed that, especially in the last 10

­­­32

years, the face of our student and parent bodies has been changing. In turn, we have needed to effect changes which reflect the current and emerging needs of our students. Like many international schools nowadays, we are engaging in ‘glocalization,’ the art of bringing the world to a place that is home for many of our students. Whereas our school was once upon a time more of an incubator for short-term expatriate students seeking continuity of educational experience, the same cannot be said today. Approximately half our students are US nationals, albeit with many holding dual nationality. Not surprisingly, many of our students are Third Culture Kids, being raised in a country and by parents who are not locals. Yet at the same time, while recognizing our place in educating students multilingually and multiculturally, the bottom line is that over 90% of our graduating seniors today attend US/Canadian universities.


International School of Los Angeles What has glocalization meant for the International School of Los Angeles? What levers have been at our disposal to effect the kind of change needed to respond to the future needs of our students? Recognizing an evolving identity Third Culture Kids share many common attributes beyond growing up in a country that is not where their parents were raised. These students are invariably able to speak at least two languages (frequently without accent), have nuanced intercultural capacity, enhanced empathy, and navigate the world as unashamed hybrids. In recognizing this reality, we added an English version to the name of our school, which, until 2015, had only a French designation. We were a bilingual institution struggling to express our identity monolingually. But that has changed. Having an English name immediately opened the doors for us to be better understood by US institutions, especially universities. It has also enabled us to welcome more local families who previously felt they could not access our school because they were not French. Tweaking our curriculum Our school offers a rigorous blended bilingual curriculum in English and French. All students study a common program until 8th grade, after which time they elect one of two discrete tracks: the French baccalauréat or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We have done a lot of work to develop both programs, which has included: • Strengthening our elementary English program, an initiative that immediately spoke to all our constituents who were federated by the reality that our students are in the US and likely to seek college admission in North America. • Internationalizing our French curriculum by implementing the section internationale américaine (SIA) from 1st-12th grade. This program sits within the framework of the French Ministry of Education’s offering and recognizes that students in our schools are both bilingual and bicultural. One distinctive feature of this offering is that all English courses are taught as English literature rather than as ESL classes. American universities therefore recognize the English literature program studied in the SIA, obviating the need for both AP English and IELTS testing.

• Realigning our entry points to reflect the US educational model, thereby enabling us to offer our international track for the high school years beginning in 9th grade, leading to the IB Diploma Programme. The 9th grade entry point services our ‘homegrown’ and new students alike. There is a real appetite for a school like ours in the LA area, with our outward-looking philosophy and emphasis on bilingualism, and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome new families by way of this additional entry point. Our students get the best of both worlds, and the wider world We draw on pedagogical and well-being practices from both the Francophone and the Anglophone worlds. Our students sometimes joke about what makes our French faculty French and what makes our American faculty American, observing the idiosyncrasies, strengths, and weaknesses of both. Naturally, we have field trips to France but our global field trips go well beyond to destinations such as Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Taiwan. In living out the best of both worlds, our students are equally developing the all-critical 21st century soft skills: communication, citizenship, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving, collaboration, and character. These skills complement well our academically rigorous, challenging bilingual program and are a vital piece in nurturing open-minded and well-rounded individuals who will thrive both locally and globally. Setting students up for glocal success Our globally-minded students are enhanced glocal citizens. Our programs prepare them for that space. We have seen from our college entry profiles (with many of our students in recent years accessing Top 100 Global Universities in North America) the value-added proposition of an education such as the one we offer at the International School of Los Angeles. As our students aim for local schools, their global educational trajectory is making them more attractive on the local market. Many political indicators have suggested in recent years that there is a reversion to local (sometimes seen as parochial) behaviors; some see it is a backlash against globalization. What a great place to be, therefore, when you are a student who can embody and extoll the virtues of glocalization!

Cultivating learning relationships Colin Powell, Director of Teaching and Learning at International School of London Qatar, explains the importance of cognitive coaching Dr James P. Comer, professor of Child Psychiatry at Yale University tells us that “[n]o significant learning occurs without a significant relationship”. Such learning relationships have become a prominent focus of learning and teaching across ISL Qatar, between students, between students and teachers and between colleagues. We know that another key investment that we must make in building our collective capacity is to pay attention to what happens between people in the learning process. We have learned that there are several key attributes worth paying attention to in order to develop better quality learning relationships. Two areas of inquiry have included relational trust and the role of conversations in learning. As we look to develop the highest possible conditions for learning, we have come back to the role of relational trust in learning relationships. In Guiding Professional Learning Communities by Roussin, Hord and Summers, they talk about the role of (a) benevolence, (b) honesty, (c) openness, (d) reliability and (e) competence in developing better trust. Specifically, the authors describe ­­­34

what each one of these ‘faces of trust’ might look like. For example, a person showing benevolence not only shows interest, but also acknowledges it verbally. Someone showing competence is able to meet or exceed the expectations of others or the perceived expectations of their role. The authors suggest that building trust demands that we see each ‘face of trust’ individually and understand it contextually. “Relational trust is the “glue” that binds people together when deciding on policies that advance the education and welfare of the students” (Bryk and Schneider, 2002). Starting from a premise that every learner (students and adults alike) deserve high quality learning conversations, we continue to develop powerful interactions as a platform for learning. Such conversations are beginning to take on different forms and have been influenced by the following ideas: our role as a teachers in such conversations is to engage thinking that results in self-modification (by the learner) that will sustain longer-lasting change. In addition, in significant learning relationships, it is more important to develop rapport, to


International School of London Qatar listen, and pose questions that support thinking than to tell people what to do. At ISL Qatar, we have embraced Cognitive Coaching as a way to facilitate the development of individual capacity within a social learning context. Developing individual capacity within a social learning context means that we are looking to craft learning relationships that develop self-directed leaders and learners – students and adults alike. “[T]he capacity for self-directed and continuous learning has become the most important capacity needed for survival in the future” (Costa & Garmston 3). Over the last 24 months, three groups of ISL Qatar teachers have completed both part 1 and part 2 of the training. Punctuated throughout the year, we have begun the process of embedding coaching conversations in our professional learning. We know that enhanced student learning success will come from developing great teachers and in appreciating how we interact. Understanding that the most fundamental of all pedagogical patterns is the conversation, we have extended the use of learning conversations to students. As part of their self-assessment process, students in the Secondary school now seek the support of a homeroom

teacher to reflect on themselves as learners and plan their next personal learning targets. The initial response has been very positive. Students have relished the focused attention and sustained time to understand themselves at a deeper level. Existing only within the development of trust, our learning conversations are a strengths-based practice aiming to impact learning within the context of strong collaboration. Developing our self-directed learning capacity relies on the support of a ‘significant learning other’. Therefore, some of the most important work we engage in here at ISL Qatar looks to cultivate and maintain learning relationships. Works cited Bryk, A. S. and Schneider, B.

Expanding horizons, adopting IB values Cranbrook School combines an outstanding education for boys in a ‘uniquely Australian’ bush setting With today’s students increasingly competing on a global stage, Sydney’s Cranbrook School strives to develop enthusiastic and inquiring learners who possess an international perspective as well as the skills and attitudes needed to succeed in the 21st century. Accredited to deliver the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) Cranbrook School delivers truly world class education throughout its Pre-Schools, Junior School and Senior School. Cranbrook School Headmaster Nicholas Sampson said Cranbrook’s mission, to enable all students to explore, enjoy and fulfil their potential, is the most important lesson taught to students, creating a culture perfectly aligned with the IB educational vision. “Through the School’s genuine and enduring commitment to creativity, diversity, individuality and a love of the pursuit of excellence, Cranbrook School empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally,” Mr Sampson said.

­­­36

“It is our commitment to developing critical and reflective thinkers that has enabled Cranbrook School to readily adopt the educational principles of the International Baccalaureate. Now applied to learning throughout the School, our teachers challenge students to excel in their studies whilst encouraging personal and academic achievement.” Cranbrook is also well advanced in its efforts to obtain accreditation to deliver the IB Diploma Programme, which will offer students the opportunity to complete their education from Pre-School to Year 12 under the IB system. Mr Sampson said the application of IB values and principles to learning at Cranbrook had proven to be enormously beneficial to students, as borne out by the exceptional results achieved by last year’s Senior School graduates. “We were thrilled with the academic achievement of last year’s graduating cohort, with three students achieving a perfect Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank of 99.95 whilst also enjoying sports, arts and co-curricular success,” Mr Sampson said.


Cranbrook School “Through the combined academic application of our Year 12 students and our dedicated teaching staff, Cranbrook moved from five students achieving 90% or better in 10 or more Higher School Certificate (HSC) units in 2016, to 15 students securing a place in the HSC All Round Achievers List in 2018: a remarkable result. “The spread of these impressive results across the full range of HSC subjects showed the wide range of capability and diversity that makes Cranbrook’s educational offering and student population unique and was testament to how our staff teach to each boy’s strengths. “Cranbrook’s 2018 achievement of 33rd place on the Sydney Morning Herald’s Top 50 Schools List – a 14 place improvement – was an incredible result.” But Mr Sampson said while the whole school community was buoyed by the outstanding academic success students had achieved, it was a source of even greater satisfaction to know that each boy was leaving Cranbrook armed with a worldly outlook and a great capacity for empathy that would serve them well throughout life. “While we are justifiably proud of these achievements, we recognise that education is more than about what is taught in the classroom,” Mr Sampson said. “League tables and results are just one measure of success. What will make these boys into the men they become from here will be the whole composite of their learning at Cranbrook and their growth; academically, personally, pastorally, spiritually and across the breadth of learning and an appreciation of the disciplines in which they’ve engaged: sports, visual art, music, design, drama sciences and languages to name a few. “Qualities such as empathy, kindness, confidence and consideration are fundamental to an IB education, and sit very much at the heart of all we do at Cranbrook in striving to provide our students the capacity to make the most of every opportunity they seek in the future. “At the end of their schooling years, it is the capacity to keep learning, coupled with the life lessons we teach, that we wholeheartedly believe prepares students for all that they may encounter in life beyond the school gate.” The School also enables students to expand their horizons through the vast array of immersive learning experiences offered at Cranbrook’s experiential learning campus deep in the scenic Wolgan Valley. Mr Sampson said Cranbrook’s Wolgan Valley Campus afforded students an endless variety of ways to learn, explore, grow and reflect in a uniquely Australian bush setting.

“Our Wolgan Valley Campus is the embodiment of our belief that all our students should be given the opportunity to participate in educational and team activities to enhance their collaboration, organisational and leadership abilities,” Mr Sampson said. “This remarkable rural setting enables us to take learning beyond the classroom for our students and to inculcate valuable skills critically important to their personal growth. “Nestled between the Blue Mountains and Wollemi National Parks in the spiritual homelands of the indigenous Wiradjuri people, Cranbrook School’s Wolgan Valley Campus is set among a landscape rich in flora and fauna. With indigenous hand paintings on the cliffs atop the valley standing testament to the legacy left by the three Aboriginal nations who once met here and with the rich historical connections to Charles Darwin’s pioneering observations of Australian wildlife, it is truly a place with a rich and storied history. “It is with immense pride that our boys are now able to absorb this palpable sense of history, and to play a critical part in part in conserving and protecting it,” Mr Sampson said. “Since hosting our boys on the first ‘Cranbrook In The Field’ outdoor learning programme in 2017, the campus has come to occupy an ever expanding role in our educational landscape, including excursions for subjects including Biology, Visual Arts and Geography with HSC study camps also occurring at the site.” For more information about Cranbrook School visit www.cranbrook.nsw.edu.au or follow us on Facebook at CranbrookSchool or Instagram at Cranbrook_Sydney

A creative approach to learning Gaining insight into teaching practices at the International School of Venice It’s not what you do, but the way that you do it. In international teaching what you learn certainly is important, but so too is the way it is taught. And one of the challenges – and rewards – of international education is taking students to new and unexpected places, while at the same time unlocking their creativity across the curriculum. It is a well-proven fact that creative and experimental teaching and learning develops students of all ages into thinkers and doers who can explore their interests, develop their strengths and grow into knowledgeable and independent learners, workers and citizens of the future. Even the way a question is phrased can encourage intellectual development. ‘Children and young people need to have the opportunity to think outside the box, because in the modern world they have so many new challenges and choices,’ says Nicola Waugh, educational director at the International School of Venice (ISV) in Italy. ‘We have to teach them to look at things in new and creative ways. Creativity also improves students’ enthusiasm for learning and their general wellbeing. It brings out the fun in life, and with

­­­38

enjoyment comes understanding.’ As Waugh also points out, in an international setting creativity helps students to cope with the complexity of language acquisition and to develop strategies to deal with human relationships and unexpected situations. The visual arts and performance subjects such as drama and music are traditionally seen as the main sources of creativity in the classroom. But they are not the only ones, and they are often mere starting points to explore other academic disciplines. For example, in one learning activity tried out by teachers at ISV during a Book Day pupils spent time listening to a poem and then creating visual metaphors to express ideas and experiences. An analysis of the wording of the poem and children’s efforts to redraft their own versions came afterwards, and were based on mental imaging. ‘As I draw, my ideas get clearer and I can think differently about different things,’ commented one pupil. ‘Writing what I see and what I draw is easy, and I understand things better.’ Both primary phase children and middle school students at ISV also combine literacy studies

‘Here at ISV we seek to create an environment where teachers are not obliged to cover every single fact, but instead leave students free and independent to acquire a knowledge base of their own.’ Nicola Waugh, educational director

with drama – staging original theatre pieces, going on educational visits to see plays performed, and discussing literary adaptations. This enhances their understanding and appreciation of plays and also their use of language. In today’s rapidly evolving society schools across the globe are ramping up their efforts to prepare students for the digital world. The use of technology in the classroom also has a special place because children and young people are already familiar with computer programmes and with the social media that come with them. Younger children, too, are already naturally curious and beginning to learn from the world around them, so schools can easily encourage them to develop information, communication and technology skills. At ISV, for example, children are free to experiment with the latest emerging technologies, and the computer suite is an open space for exploration, design and interdisciplinary project work, which can enhance learning across all subjects. Even physical education (PE) can become an exercise in creative thinking. Students at ISV, for example, draw illustrations to demonstrate their conceptual understanding of movement, position and healthy living. “The brain and body get an equally thorough workout,’ notes Waugh, “And students develop writing, artistic and scientific skills alongside the physical ones.” Creativity also has a place in more traditional academic subjects, such as mathematics, science, geography and history. By making mathematics as creative as possible through visual stimulii, students begin to look at the numerical and computational challenges quite differently. Instead of being a ‘difficult’, ‘complex’ or out-of-reach subject, mathematics becomes intriguing and exciting. For example, at ISV a Year 3 assignment to find out more about the relationship between mathematics and the real world using data on film favourites created a spark of excitement among the young learners. Whether it is a problem-solving exercise, a research

project or a class discussion, there are no boundaries where creativity is concerned. “Here at ISV we seek to create an environment where teachers are not obliged to cover every single fact, but instead leave students free and independent to acquire a knowledge base of their own,” explains Waugh. “The teacher’s job is to have them think through problems for themselves. Schools should be developing the kind of mindset that meets the needs of tomorrow. And putting this into practice should be as enjoyable as it is rewarding. Schools must innovate in order to keep children interested and engaged. And for international schools this is especially important because it is such a highly competitive field. While it used to be OK for creativity to be addressed in the form of drawing, painting and a few field trips, schools today have to go much further – arranging more outdoor learning activities, community events, trips abroad and other ways of bringing children outside their own box in order to explore the world around them. It is a given that children learn better when they are having fun. When the line between work and play is blurred – and children don’t even realise that they are really studying! – then children can produce the most amazing outcomes. From science laboratory experiments to constructing robots, there are many ways to inspire pupils and to help them think and work differently.” Learners should also be routinely asked to express their opinions and points of view on a variety of issues and topics – no matter how advanced they might at first seem for a particular age group. Their responses and justifications provide excellent opportunities to develop their ability to argue, reason and conclude. In an international context this approach also offers invaluable opportunities for language learning. And in schools made up of a mix of students from different nations, cultures and backgrounds, a creative approach to learning can also help to establish a comforting environment where children feel safe and confident in a global world.

#relocating, #newchallenges, – tips from an insider Christoph Kexel, of accadis International School Bad Homburg in Germany, is expertly placed to assist families in new surroundings More than ever, people are moving abroad for professional reasons and are taking their families with them to a new country. Despite the general sense of globalization which draws so many people abroad today, and in spite of the high level of digitalization, relocation abroad remains a challenge for families. What families can expect While parents are trying to find a new home in the foreign country and are settling into their new jobs and social lives, their children are busy settling into a new school or kindergarten. All family members will be working on getting used to a new culture, and parents will be faced with many questions. What language skills will we need to acquire or freshen up? What means of payment do the locals use? Will we find our way around the local supermarkets and other stores? Are there any sensitive political issues we need to know? How to spend our free time?

International schools – specialized on expat families Not only in light of Brexit – whenever it may come – Frankfurt as Germany’s financial hub with its many corporate businesses and banks is a popular destination for expat families. Many of the international schools located in the Frankfurt metropolitan region specialize in expat families. “Some of the international schools have a bilingual focus,” says the Managing Partner of accadis International School Bad Homburg, Prof. Dr. Christoph Kexel. “Together with internationally recognized curricula, this approach guarantees families a school education of international standard and supports them in making Germany their new home. The children’s school plays an essential role in the integration process of its students and their families.” School – your path to integration An international school is the ideal place for parents to get in touch with other expat families as well as local ones.

‘At accadis ISB children and teachers from over 47 nationalities learn and live together. They develop respect for different cultures from the very first day of school.’ Chirstoph Kexel, Managing Partner

They can share experiences and gain valuable advice when it comes to finding their feed in a new country. “Not only the children, but also parents sometimes struggle with language barriers in the new country,” says Christoph Kexel. “International schools use English as their administrative language, which often makes the whole process of changing schools much easier.” Nevertheless, the local language also plays an important role at international schools. “At accadis ISB, we focus on subjects taught in both languages German and English,” says Christoph Kexel. The German-taught subjects help children from abroad to also socialize in their free time, e.g. in sports or music clubs. Older expat students especially benefit from bilingualism at school when seeking internships or academic programmes in Germany.

In addition, many international schools provide foreign language courses to parents as well as students.

Learning German with the immersion method International schools apply a large variety of different language learning concepts. accadis ISB has opted for the globally recognized immersion method. “We especially apply this approach in our Preschool and Elementary School,” says Christoph Kexel. The new language becomes the ‘official’ and everyday language. Following the principle ‘one face – one language’, one teacher speaks only German, the other only English. “Everything the foreign language teacher says is additionally reinforced by facial expressions, gestures or pointing,” says Christoph Kexel. This way, the child gains independently – step by step – access to the new language based on the given situation. At the accadis ISB Secondary School education focuses more on the English language to allow international students to follow the lessons more easily and to allow German students to learn English more quickly.

The German school system The German school system consists of several stages. Kindergarten or Nursery is followed by four or five years of elementary school. After the German elementary school children enter into either a ‘Hauptschule’ up to Grade 9, a ‘Realschule’ up to Grade 10 (equivalent to the British GCSEs) or a secondary school up to Grade 12 or 13 (equivalent to the IB). In addition, there are ‘Fachoberschulen’, which lead to the more practice-oriented ‘Fachabitur’, meaning that graduates can study at Universities of Applied Sciences. Characteristically Germany also has comprehensive schools, which offer the above mentioned school branches parallel to one other. Graduates of the Haupt- und Realschule (GCSEs) usually take up an apprenticeship with a company or continue their studies at a secondary school. IB graduates can go on to study at universities worldwide.

Developing social skills International schools also help children in developing social skills. “They encounter different nationalities and cultures in the classroom and in the schoolyard every day,” says Christoph Kexel. “At accadis ISB children and teachers from over 47 nationalities learn and live together. They develop respect for different cultures from the very first day of school.” Many international schools provide a diverse range of extracurricular programmes in order to support their students in expanding their social environment in their new home. They offer learning, music and sport clubs, theatre groups as well as after school care.

IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma Schools such as accadis ISB provide international degrees like the Cambridge International Examinations (IGCSEs) at the end of Grade 10 and the IB Diploma at the end of Grade 12. Many Cambridge International Schools in Germany educate on the basis of a combination of the federal state curriculum and the Cambridge Assessment curriculum. The students take the IGCSE examinations at the age of 16 and also receive a German secondary school certificate. Many German IB World Schools teach the IB Diploma Programme – in Grades 11 and 12. IB Diploma students choose to study six subjects covering a wide range of curricular areas. The IB Diploma Programme is characterized by a high academic standard and promotes an interdisciplinary approach. In addition to the academic content, the programme also focuses on a holistic approach which enables students to become critical thinkers, to be open-minded with an interest in lifelong learning. Relocation to Germany – good to know Every country has characteristics that are helpful to know when moving there. For example, in Germany, the cliché

‘time is money’ seems to be true. For most Germans it is important to be on time both privately and professionally and to work efficiently. Moreover, even if the use of the informal form of ‘you’ (Du) is becoming increasingly common in German companies, the formal ‘Sie’ is still a key element of everyday life in Germany. For example, initially you would formally address your neighbours, colleagues or people in everyday public life as Mrs or Mr X until they ask you to call them by their first name. German is considered a difficult language. Therefore, parents are recommended to inquire about suitable language courses well in advance. accadis ISB employs both German and English native speakers in order to offer the best language learning opportunities for children. In Germany, there are clubs for almost everything. This offers expat children and their parents an excellent opportunity to socialize and integrate with the locals outside of school or work. Last but not least – while Swedes and US Americans pay almost exclusively by credit card, many Germans are still fond of their ‘small change’ for little payments in supermarkets or shopping malls. In some shops and restaurants, there is a minimum charge for card payment. For more information about the bilingual teaching approach at accadis ISB: www.accadis-isb.com

Early childhood learning: planting the seeds for success How the American School of Paris prepares young students for the jobs of the future About the American School of Paris The American School of Paris (ASP), is a coeducational, independent day school of 800 students representing more than 60 nationalities, ages 3-18. The school’s mission is to inspire and prepare students to achieve personal and academic excellence. Founded in 1946, ASP’s four-hectare campus on the edge of the French capital has been recently rebuilt to accommodate a wide range of learning styles and subjects. The school offers an American curriculum with both the IB diploma and Advanced Placement courses, and emphasizes a wide range of authentic learning opportunities in and out of the classroom as part of its rigorous pedagogical program. Strategic planning, empowering students Head of School Jane Thompson explains how ASP’s recent strategic planning process provided the impetus

for the school to look both inwards and outwards to identify academic priorities for the years ahead. “We’ve involved our entire community in our plan development by asking students, parents, teachers, as well as international educational leaders, government representatives, and business executives who know our school, to contribute their insights and help define how we can best empower students for success now and in the future.” A fast-changing world In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven global economy, many of the skills that are currently frontline in the marketplace will soon be obsolete. The business experts who participated in ASP’s strategic planning discussions also pointed out that many of the jobs that will be available when today’s young students are finally ready to enter the work force do not yet exist.

Preparing for the Future Business executives also told ASP that in today’s world, test results are often less an indicator of future professional success than the acquisition of certain life skills and character qualities. Amongst those prized and recruited in the new talent economy: independence, entrepreneurship, collaborative skills, problem solving, decision-making, flexibility, resiliency, resourcefulness, and confidence. While these important qualities are frequently explored with adolescents, research suggests that starting the conversations at an even younger age yields a stronger probability of solid acquisition. The early years of a child’s development and first years at school can therefore be key in establishing a strong foundation for learning and character development. Supporting young learners How does ASP support their youngest students in developing these life skills? “We have found the answer in a surprising and wonderful place which now is at the core of the structure and philosophy of our early years program,” shares Ms. Thompson. “Play-based learning encourages the development of the new talent economy traits in a perfectly age-appropriate way. ASP children are exposed to learning and problem solving through self-initiated activities and teacher guidance in play-

­­­44

based situations in complement to a teacher-centered classroom approach.” Play-based learning Based on a general definition of play as an activity engaged in for enjoyment and recreation, playbased learning features an educational style set in an environment that is comfortable and pleasing, in which a child chooses to engage and explore, and is based on the conversations and discoveries that happen during the play time. The intellectual, academic, and cognitive effects of quality play experiences help develop independence, entrepreneurship, collaboration, problem solving, and more. Ms. Thompson notes that: “Such impressive outcomes may sound lofty given the young age of the children, but thanks to the skill of our teachers and the structures that we’ve put in place, it all evolves in a joyful, natural way.” And, if these outcomes sound familiar, it is because they are the same character traits which ASP found are sought-after in the marketplace. Preparing for play To prepare for the launch of play-based learning at ASP, the school provides teacher training around play, finetuned its pedagogical program, invested in new indoor

and outdoor equipment and materials, and scheduled play periods to ensure that learning can evolve at a comfortable pace. Not just ‘child’s play’: the role of the educator What does play look like at ASP? Students and teachers ‘work together to play’ in both child-initiated and teachersupported learning. Teachers may design contexts in which children can be playful in their encounters with classmates and with materials, and they provoke and empower them to explore, experiment, discover and solve problems in imaginative and playful ways. Playbased learning leads a child to reflect on various ideas at hand and stretch their thinking to a higher level,

sometimes following up in the classroom with discussions to apply findings to additional scenarios. “It’s such powerful learning, with kids as the architects of their own learning, laying the groundwork and building it out with their insights and imagination, and through conversations with classmates and their teacher,” shares Dan Kerr, Lower School Director. “With play-based learning, ASP’s youngest students have the tools and encouragement to take their learning to a whole new level, creating a strong foundation from which to master the challenges and opportunities of their future.” To learn more about the American School of Paris and its Early Childhood program, contact admissions@asparis.fr or visit asparis.org

Taking personalized learning to the next level Dwight Global Online School offers a flexible learning environment using the latest technologies – and still searches for each child’s ‘spark of genius’ When it comes to meeting the needs of middle and high school students, there is no one-size-fits-all school. They have so many different interests and needs, ranging from wanting to take courses that their local school doesn’t offer to finding additional time in the day to spend on personal pursuits. Well, there has been no one school to fit the bill – until now. Dwight Global Online School is dedicated to offering students in grades 7-12 all over the world a substantially wide range of AP and IB courses and the highest level of personalization. At the very heart of a Dwight education is an unwavering commitment to nurturing each individual student’s interests, talents, and passions, which Dwight calls “igniting the spark of genius in every child.” This signature educational philosophy, which dates back

­­­46

nearly 150 years, has distinguished Dwight from other independent schools in New York City, across the U.S., and worldwide. Dwight Global Online School is the 21st century extension of this unique philosophy, bonding students’ personal passions with top-tier academics and the latest technologies in a highly supported flexible learning environment. An online school like no other As Dwight’s campus in the cloud, Dwight Global has gained a reputation for meeting students’ individual needs since launching in 2014. Through a combination of the following, students experience the intimacy of an independent school coupled with the freedom to pursue their passions:


Dwight Global Online School • live online conferences that bring students together with faculty and each other in small classes • a college-style schedule • Oxford-style tutorials • extracurriculars and a wide range of communitybuilding activities • in-person programs on Dwight campuses such as STEAM weekends • opportunities to attend classes on any one of Dwight’s global campuses in New York, London, Seoul, Shanghai, and Dubai • opportunities to travel on international trips with peers from other Dwight campuses • on-demand resources that students can access anytime, anywhere Talented students following their dreams When it comes to pursuing their passions, many Dwight Global students are doing so at high levels, ranging from acting in movies and on TV to playing competitive tennis on an international scale; and from dancing ballet with professional companies to recording their own music. While every one of these students is on his or her own path, they share one thing in common: they are not willing to give up their pursuit of excellence in one arena – their spark of genius – to pursue excellence in another: a world-class education. Thanks to Dwight Global, they don’t have to. As no two students are the same, neither are their educational journeys. Dwight Global offers both the International Baccalaureate curriculum and Advanced Placement courses, plus the opportunity for students to select from both and customize their own path. For student-athletes, it’s especially important that Dwight Global classes are NCAA-approved, which is required for entrance to Division I and II colleges. Dwight’s Online Course Director and college counselors work one-on-one with students to help them select classes that pique their intellectual interests and curiosity, setting them on a path to success at Dwight Global, in higher education, or wherever a student’s dream leads.

Flexible scheduling Dwight Global enables students to adapt their schedules beyond the traditional 8 am to 3pm school day to train, practice, travel, perform, or compete at elite levels. They can and do log on from anywhere, ranging from a TV set dressing room to an equestrian’s stable – wherever there is Wi-Fi. Dwight Global students at the top of their game have underscored these very benefits: Yara Shahidi, star of ‘Black-ish’ and ‘Grown-ish’: “As a professional actor and student extremely focused on academics, Dwight Global offers challenging online courses and the flexibility and support I needed to balance my work and school lives.” Karl Poling, ranked tennis player: “Dwight Global allows me to pursue my goal, which is tennis. It gives me more freedom, more time, and more flexibility.” Loeke Sakkers, ballerina: “Taking IB classes with Dwight’s online program has been especially rewarding. Performing and rehearsing make meeting my academic goals more difficult, but through Dwight I can take challenging courses. I can access all of the lessons and assignments when I want to, and I can connect with my teachers on Skype regularly.” Khalil Middleton, singer and entertainer: “I used to miss a lot of school because I travel so much to audition and perform. It makes so much sense for me now to be part of this online program. The teachers are great – it’s not just a job for them.” Ellieka Keida, surfer: “At Dwight Global, I take a rigorous course load while pursuing my passions in surfing, acting, and modeling. Dwight Global gives me the flexibility to live in Costa Rica and travel for my passions.” Great college acceptances With college guidance beginning early in grade nine, recent Dwight Global graduates who continue to pursue their educational goals at the highest level have gone on to attend Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Columbia, Duke, Vassar, Middlebury, Tufts, Tulane, and other leading colleges and universities. No matter where students want to go, Dwight Global is committed to helping them every step of the way, supporting students’ unbridled ambitions and personalizing their educational journey on a truly unprecedented level.

Global Service Travel boosts sense of empathy in students Franne Van der Keilen, Director of Institutional Advancement at American School of The Hague in The Netherlands, explains a program designed to nurture world-minded leaders Each year, American School of The Hague (ASH) Middle and High School students travel to destinations around the world as part of our Global Service Travel Program where they learn about themselves, about collaboration, and how to lead effectively. These students spend their winter break working with local teachers in Nepal, building homes through Habitat for Humanity in Portugal, strengthening school infrastructure in Tanzania, studying the legacy and memory of the Holocaust in Poland, and organizing extra-curricular activities for children of migrant workers in Thailand. The saying ‘Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand’, acknowledges the depth in learning we experience after sensing. It promotes learning through direct experience and taking much of the responsibility for the production of knowledge and understanding. The ASH service learning

program is an obvious example of experiential learning. Aligned with the curriculum, it offers opportunities for students to research, study and build the skills and competencies required to address validated social and environmental needs both near and far. The Global Service Travel program in the high school runs year-long with a week of international field service at the site of our designated partners. This onsite service experience forms the culmination of each team’s preparatory work including bi-weekly meetings on leadership and team building, issues research, sustainable solutions brainstorming activities, service work planning and travel logistics coordination. They also engage in contextual research and develop strategies for becoming global ambassadors for their work with the local partner. Students must give the program thorough thought before applying, as it requires of them a year-long


American School of The Hague commitment, an open mind, an emotionally and mentally strong disposition, and a willingness to work hard and be compassionate and positive leaders. Successful applicants are in good standing academically and behaviorally and will reap plentiful learning outcomes from investing in the program. Most importantly, they will have a strengthened sense of empathy. Our younger students also develop an understanding of social and environmental issues and receive plentiful opportunities to connect the skills and competencies they develop at school with genuine community needs. This year, for example, our youngest learners taught the song ‘I’ve got Peace in my Fingers’ to their peers in the Early Childhood Center, while our 5th Grade scientists spent a day working at a nature reserve that is one of the last local natural habitats of the Eurasian skylark. As they grow older, ASH students become more involved with exploring and addressing local community issues and take on more responsibility in groups or individually for planning service initiatives, picking up new challenges, working collaboratively with community partners and engaging with a variety of issues. A group of Grade 9 students, for example, created a Beach Clean Up Team, going out every week to pick up litter along our local beach and using the collected trash to raise awareness about environmental issues.

What distinguishes service learning from volunteering or community service is the melding of the service with the learning.

Gradually, our students evolve from being sideline observers to active participants in tackling community needs. What distinguishes service learning from volunteering or community service is the melding of the service with the learning, where students simultaneously learn and apply their learning to real-world contexts and reflect on their engagement. ‘Service learning provides an authentic educational experience,’ explained an ASH student participant. ‘It is a chance to expand the classroom to the world. I am thrown into a new environment that challenges my perceptions, teaches me empathy better than anything else can, and encourages me to push myself further than what I ever imagine is possible.’

Small town, small school – big memories Archbishop Walsh Academy in Olean, NY can offer international students something quite unique – and the benefits are plenty When students and their parents look to spend time learning in an international setting they have many concerns and issues to consider. Will a student be safe? Will they make friends? Will they fall behind in their academics? Aside from these perfectly natural questions, they are often drawn to communities that they are already familiar with. American cities like New York and Los Angeles are known throughout the world due to the influence of American media and are often the first localities that students from other nations. Archbishop Walsh Academy in Olean, NY has found that often meeting the needs and concerns of international students can be served by a smaller school in a smaller community. Archbishop Walsh Academy is a small Catholic school in Olean NY. Olean is a city of about 14,000 people. It is in the western region of New York State.

­­­50

The nearest major city is Buffalo which is about an hour and a half drive to the north. It is within an afternoon’s drive of the major cities of the American Atlantic coast and the Toronto metro area in Canada. It’s also close to the global level tourist attraction of Niagara Falls. It’s a city whose economic base is manufacturing and education. It is home to Dresser-Rand and Cutco who produce industrial equipment and cutlery, respectfully. It is near St. Bonaventure University, a major regional university. However, it is an area that is not necessarily the first stop an international tourist might make in the United States. However, this environment can be one that is a more positive one for international students than some alternatives. Archbishop Walsh Academy has made a point to recruit international students for the benefit they provide to the school as well as the benefits to the students


Archbishop Walsh Academy

Archbishop Walsh is an International Baccalaureate school. It is the only school to use that curriculum in its region of New York State and one of the few International Baccalaureate (IB) Catholic schools with a focus on international students in the United States.

themselves. The school feels that its international students provide their American students with a fresh perspective they might not have been exposed to otherwise. The international student presence opens up a view into other cultures and walks of life. Also, the small class sizes at Archbishop Walsh mean that students of all backgrounds not only interact, they become family. It is a regular occurrence for students to maintain relationships with classmates and host families long after their time in the United States has ended. The community as well is one that is open to an international presence and the family atmosphere extends beyond the limits of the campus. The smaller school environment that is more common in a more rural area can also be an advantage. When you are in a class with 11 students, the average class size at Archbishop Walsh, no one can fall through the cracks. Each individual student is known to the staff and administration. This is important for all students preventing social isolation and bullying. However, it is especially beneficial for international students who have to forge new relationships and often experience homesickness. The school can know in real-time if there is a problem with an international student’s experience, it can then be corrected with greater effectiveness and speed. This family atmosphere is a conscious choice on the part of Archbishop Walsh. Students who get to know each other in a deeper way will have a greater path to success. Archbishop Walsh has made academic choices that aid the international student experience in addition to the advantages geography brings. Archbishop Walsh is an International Baccalaureate school. It is the only school to use that curriculum in its region of New York State and one of the few International Baccalaureate (IB) Catholic schools with a focus on international students in the United States. Many international students come from a school that utilizes the IB curriculum – this makes the academic transition seamless. Even if they don’t come

from an IB school, the IB perspective at Walsh leads to a mindset that is welcoming to what the international community brings to the table. This means that students have a consistency in quality and content that improves their experience. Now, what about what a student might be afraid of missing in a smaller community? While it is undeniable that the major metropolitan areas of the United States offer amazing memories and world class attractions, they are not the end all and be all of the American experience. Many, rural schools, like Archbishop Walsh are with a reasonable drive of major attractions. This means that students can still experience was places like New York, Toronto and Philadelphia have to offer while not living there. Foremost on the minds of many parents of international students is that of safety. The lower crime rates in small cities can help lend a peace of mind to parents. Also, there is more to America than just the major coastal communities. A smaller town experience can give a student a perspective on the American culture that is more nuanced than that presented in the media. In sum, international students and their families should not ignore the many options available in America’s smaller schools and cities. While the glamor of the big city may be lacking it is more than made up for in the friendships, community and experiences of small town life. When students choose to study internationally they are choosing a unique experience that will stay with them for a lifetime. Those who reject out of hand schools like Archbishop Walsh Academy are shutting themselves off from a world of positive and growth filled experiences. Parents and students should take the time to seek out all the different options available to them before they make a decision as to where to spend time traveling abroad. If they do they will be more likely to find a school that fits them, and it may be in a corner of the America that they never though they would find.

Ensuring a smooth transition Halcyon London International School places a focus on making students relocating feel at home Changing schools – whether moving across a city or around the world – can be an exciting, albeit challenging time for any family and student. Transitions can be that much more successful thanks to the support, guidance, and welcome from the new school community. It follows then that your chosen new school’s admissions process, orientation programme, student wellbeing programme, empathetic staff, vibrant parent community, as well as language programmes, must support students and families to transition into their new home in London and their new community. The personal approach Halcyon’s admissions staff have created a process that is holistic, personal, and intentional is the first step in the transition to a new school. We actively seek to build strong relationships enabling families to make informed decisions when considering schools for their children.

­­­52

Our admissions process includes a face-to-face or Skype interview with our Director and we are always happy to conduct private tours outside of our Open Days. This personal approach helps our team to ensure a good fit between family and school and is an important step in ensuring a smooth transition for families who choose Halcyon. Many families face mid-year relocations, so whether a student joins at the start of the academic year or midyear, schools must be well-equipped to ensure that every student feels welcomed and is able to settle quickly into the normal rhythm of the school. At Halcyon, mid-year joiners, and their families have an orientation session with our Senior Leadership Team. This time is dedicated to helping families gain a better understanding of teaching and learning within the school and the student wellbeing programme. Each student is also introduced to their Learning Mentor and student buddy.

Language does much more than merely promote cognitive growth: it is crucial for developing and maintaining personal cultural identity, international-mindedness and a culture of celebrating difference.

Breaking down language barriers Transitions to a new country and school can be made easier when a school commits to strong language acquisition and Mother tongue language programmes. We are committed to nurturing an appreciation of the richness and diversity of language. Language does much more than merely promote cognitive growth: it is crucial for developing and maintaining personal cultural identity, international-mindedness and a culture of celebrating difference. The acquisition of more than one language and maintenance of the mother tongue enriches personal growth and helps facilitate international understanding, as well as supporting students maintaining strong links with their home country. Student wellbeing Research shows that students are more likely to enjoy learning and reach their social and academic potential when they feel content, safe, and engaged. This is particularly crucial for those students transitioning from one school to another, where their sense of belonging and routine may be disrupted. Our Wellbeing programme provides students with the skills to build and contribute to a shared, secure learning community, where everyone’s qualities are recognised, valued and included. Through our Cognitive Coaching and

Mentoring programmes, we proactively develop strong relationships, an enthusiasm for learning new skills and increased emotional adaptability and resilience through conversations. Our young people are encouraged to build a shared learning community, supporting each other and themselves. Our Family Buddy Programme connects new families with a current family; the programme ensures that each new family is welcomed and gets to know at least one friendly face prior to arriving at Halcyon. Our buddy families have a wealth of knowledge and information about transitioning to London and Halcyon and are able to provide new families and students with further resources, assurance and assistance as they transition to life in London and at Halcyon. Just as we value the possibility of every student to fulfil their unique potential, we actively nurture the same opportunities for growth for everyone in our community – learning together to build and support our school. Families relocating to London find a welcoming community in our Halcyon Parent Community (HPC): an all-parent volunteer organisation. The HPC organise and host a wide variety of Halcyon’s events and social outings. Along with whole school social gatherings, Grade Representatives host termly socials for families within the grade. Some of the parent coordinators also organise professional tours in London, picnics, walks and other fun activities.

Upholding the British standard in Poland Q&A with Alun Yorath, Principal of The British School Warsaw For those unfamiliar with the school, how would you introduce The British School Warsaw to the outsider. What’s its back story, and what makes it special? Our School Founder, Mrs. Iwona Thomas MBE, established The British School in 1992. Over 25 years we have grown from 38 students to 1200 students. We offer an international education with a British ethos catering to English speaking families who value the high academic standards and a truly international learning experience. We are nonselective, with over 70 nationalities most with English as a second language, yet we manage to achieve GCSE and IB results far above UK and international standards. What is the British standard – what do you mean by this and how can you replicate it here in Warsaw? Define the underlying philosophy on which the British School operates. British education overseas is a huge growth market with demand amongst expat and local communities.

­­­54

However, research has shown that the demand is not simply for a British curriculum or exam but for something less tangible. When parents are seeking a British Education they want a school which places value on the extra-curricular offer; where uniform, behaviour and timekeeping are pillars of a well-functioning community; and where high expectations are evident in all that the school does. There is no shortage of international schools in Warsaw – in your view, what unique aspects elevate the British School Warsaw above others. We are unique in Warsaw in that we are part of a family of 61 schools with Nord Anglia Education (NAE) which allows us to leverage international collaborations. Our students have the opportunity to travel to our expedition based snow-sports centre in Switzerland; renovate schools & build goat sheds in Tanzania; perform with over 500 talented musicians at the Juilliard School, New York;


The British School Warsaw attend Space camp and STEAM festival at MIT University and take over UNICEF Headquarters in NY. Also recruiting outstanding internationally experienced teachers is at the heart of any successful international school, and our global presence allows us to attract the very best. You have briefly mentioned your exam results and the quality of your teachers. Can you expand on these areas? Tell me more about your teachers, your results and just as importantly, tell me about your students? Yes, our teachers are a diverse bunch! The vast majority are UK trained with many who have spent time overseas and we have Polish and other native language teachers. Our teachers are attracted by the professional opportunities afforded by being part of our very own Nord Anglia University. Last summer our students excelled with 52% of all our GCSE exams were graded at A*-A, compared with an average of 20% in the UK. Our IB results scored an average of 35 points against a world average of 29.8. One of our students scored 45/45 which is truly remarkable with only 240 students worldwide scoring this mark. Additionally, almost 25% of our students achieved a score of 40+. Our students make our school: They are diverse, internationally minded, hardworking, diligent, courageous, kind and a delight to teach. What are the benefits of sending your child to the British School in Warsaw than, say, a British school in… Britain! Does being in Warsaw not hamper a student’s chance of entering a British university once they finish their studies there? As an international school we can choose to select the very best components of any curriculum. In Primary school, we use the academic rigour and framework of the English National Curriculum as our foundation and extend this by International Primary Curriculum. For our older students we offer the International GCSEs programme which is benchmarked against UK and international students, so important for University applications but also in preparation for their ‘post-16’ studies. Our ‘Post-16’ curriculum is based on the world leading International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and we have offered this for 15 years with huge success. Most students in the UK will sit A Level examinations at ‘Post-16’. It is widely acknowledged that whilst A levels are the de-facto UK exam system; they significantly disadvantage applications even to UK Universities! Recent research by HESA, (Higher Education Statistics Agency) showed that 24% of A level students secured

places at a top-20 UK university compared with 40% of IB students. Also an IB student is 20% more likely to secure a 1st class honours degree in the UK than an A level student. Further HESA research shows a gap between IB and A-level students on their readiness to study at university. This study found that IB students were better prepared to study independently than A level students (94% compared with 49%) and their time and self-management skills were significantly more developed (91% compared with 47%). IB students are 25% more likely to achieve a Master’s or PhD degree than an A Level student due to their preparedness to succeed at University. Your school has children aged 2½ to 18. What are the advantages of being able to cover the whole age range? For children: Student role models, opportunities for student leadership and a sense of community. For Parents: Convenience, Security and a sense of community. For Teachers: Collaborations, Resources and a sense of community!

King’s College Madrid sets out IB vision King’s College, The British School of Madrid is currently undertaking all the necessary steps to apply to become an official IB World School in order to ensure that they are fully prepared to teach the International Baccalaureate (IB). This programme will be followed in parallel to the A Level curriculum. Once approved, King’s College in Soto de Viñuelas would be the only school in Madrid offering both IB and A Level programme in English, taught by British trained teachers thus providing students with a leading offer in the country’s capital. The school aims to begin the implementation of the IB from September 2020 and will be running this in parallel with the existing A Level programme. Students will be able to choose which path they continue their education on once they leave Year 11. The decision was taken in order to continue to follow the Group’s Vision “to be at the forefront of education” and to continually innovate, as the Group has been doing over the last 50 years. Elena Benito, King’s Group CEO, added: “We are keen to ensure that our students are prepared for life beyond school, and therefore we have taken the decision to provide them with the choice of electing which curriculum they wish to follow in their final two years at school, which will allow them to tailor their decision most appropriately to their chosen higher education studies and ultimately their career path.”

­­­56

“At King’s College we are committed to offering an excellent British education in English and delivered by native British and British trained teaching staff, while also personalising learning to meet pupil needs. Introducing the IB Diploma at King’s College, alongside continuing to teach A Levels, enables King’s to offer a unique and unrivalled series of educational options, planned to maximise the range of educational opportunities available to our Sixth Form pupils,” said Matthew Taylor, Headmaster of King’s College Madrid. As an IB school, King’s College would also become part of an exclusive International Baccalaureate Organisation world organisation (IBO) which would enable the school to work with other high-level institutions internationally and share excellent practice to enhance pupils’ learning environment. “Our specialist native British trained staff are able to offer the bespoke IB Diploma qualification to pupils, drawing on their expertise as teachers, whose excellence was recognised in our most recent inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate,” continued Matthew Taylor, Headmaster. The IB has proven to explicitly foster the values already promoted in King’s College, such as critical thinking, determination and open-mindedness, in particular through the compulsory subjects of Theory of Knowledge (ToK), the Extended Essay (EE) and Creativity, Action and Service (CAS).


King’s College Madrid

Why IB? Q&A with Headteacher Matthew Taylor Why is King’s College Madrid introducing the IB? King’s College Madrid believes in offering personalised education to children. The IB Diploma Programme’s philosophy of international mindedness accords well with King’s College’s core values and our commitment to supporting the local community as well as making pupils aware of global issues.

questions about the nature of knowledge. Thirdly, the extended essay provides a real opportunity for pupils to enhance their research and essay writing skills. Finally, the International Baccalaureate’s CAS programme ensures pupils engage meaningfully with their local community and also undertake a service activity, and grow by taking on a new activity.

What is the IB? The International Baccalaureate is an internationally recognised two year course for Sixth Form pupils, aged 16-19, and delivered in over 5000 schools worldwide. What is going to happen in regards of the current British education at King’s College Madrid? King’s is committed to offering pupils more choice. As well as offering the IB Diploma Programme we will continue to offer a full range of UK A Levels.

What about IB and university access? The International Baccalaureate is a valued and accepted Sixth Form course that facilitates access to universities around the world, everywhere from Spain and the UK to the USA and Canada. Practically speaking, the IB’s results come out on 5th July every year, before the August A Level results; this is very helpful for university access in countries like Spain, which have earlier closing dates for submitting results for university unlike the UK.

How will IB help pupils? The IB Diploma enables pupils to continue studying a range of subjects: Maths, Languages, Humanities and Science. Secondly, its core programme really helps pupils to develop creative and critical thinking skills and to understand different approaches to

Can any student do the IB? The International Baccalaureate is suitable for any pupil who has achieved a good set of GCSE results of grade 5 or higher. Most important is the pupil’s study habits, such as organisation, conscientiousness and intellectual inquisitiveness.

The IB works to provide the student with a wider breadth of education as they choose to study 6 subjects and the IB core (of CAS, ToK, EE) focusing on developing an independent learning approach. The Diploma Programme (DP) consists of both internal and external examinations. External examinations form the primary basis of the assessment due to their high levels of objectivity and reliability. The students must choose 3 Higher and 3 Standard level subjects from various groups, ranging from Sciences to Humanities to Technology and they are awarded grades between 1-7 with an additional 3 points awarded for completing compulsory subjects of the Theory of Knowledge, CAS and an Extended Essay. Students can receive a maximum of 45 points. With an IB diploma, much like A Levels, students are readily accepted into the world’s best universities and colleges. The breadth of the DP enables students to offer extra, not only in higher education but also within

their future careers. Our Chief Academic Officer, Dawn Akyürek said: “Some see the International Baccalaureate, as the world’s fastest growing qualification, and the best choice for today’s students, while others still firmly believe that A Levels remain the gold standard in global education. In truth, I think the best path for a student largely depends on their individual personality and goals. Both programmes take equally valid approaches, but focus on different aspects of a student’s education. It’s for this reason that we have decided to offer both the IB Diploma and A Level options, allowing our admissions department to provide unbiased advice to both students and parents in helping them make the right choice for their needs.” All DP curriculums are also reviewed on a seven-year teaching cycle to ensure that each cycle of study is fit for purpose in today’s ever-evolving world and to continue to incorporate the latest educational research.

An inside look at supplying an international school As a nonprofit organization, International Schools Services (ISS) works with more than 500 international schools and thousands of educators each year across a diverse suite of services. ISS School Supply is a critical part of this support, supplying international schools around the world and processing more than 15,000 orders annually. Catch up in this adapted interview with Keith Cincotta (ISS Director of School Services/Senior Leadership Executive, Managed Schools) to learn first-hand from ISS School Supply what administrators should keep in mind as they supply their schools, what innovative school materials are trending across international education, and much more. What does the school supply season look like for international schools and the School Supply team? Almost all the schools want to receive their shipments in the summer when their students are not on campus, so before then, our School Supply team is really focused on getting all the orders together for their schools. Teachers submit their list of classroom needs, and schools submit those to us. We follow up with vendors and make sure the school’s ordered items are what actually show up at our

­­­58

warehouse; we track paperwork requirements, redirect orders to save schools money, work with vendors; we book containers and ships, arrange trucks to come to the warehouse, receive freight at the warehouse, prepare shipments, and send shipments. Do you have any advice for school administrators planning their inventory and supply needs? Remember that we consolidate and ship school supplies by ocean, so the earlier we get in your orders, the better. Plan for how you’re going to store and distribute materials. As you think about next school year’s supplies, consider next year’s enrollment or academic additions. Will you have new students in the fall? Make sure to adjust your supply needs to include them. Are you offering new courses, new clubs, new sports teams, or things that aren’t on your order every year? Don’t forget to add them to your inventory considerations.  As starting resources, the ISS Back-to-School checklist can help you plan basic school inventory, and  the ISS  School Supply Supplement  offers  vendor insights.  (See links at the end of article.)


International Schools Services What trends have you noticed lately in school supply orders? We are seeing a lot of STEM and makerspace orders, specifically flexible furniture that lets teachers adapt and be agile with their class setup. We’re purchasing many robotics items right now; VR goggles are also super popular and 3D printers are big. Sometimes people assume we’re just shipping physical items from the warehouse, but we’re also using our network of suppliers to find digital resources for schools. We’re seeing more orders for ebooks, digital memberships and subscriptions, online services primarily related to teaching and learning, but also school management systems and software. What  considerations go into supplying international schools that people new to the process might not know about? Since the international schools we work with deliver an American or international curriculum, they need materials that they can only get in the US. That’s where our School Supply team comes in to support and simplify the whole process. Many international schools aren’t big enough to have their own purchasing offices, but they can use us as an outsourced purchasing team to go through the planning and purchasing process, plus negotiate savings with vendors.  International schools tend to order many small items as opposed to a large number of commodity things. We consolidate school items at the ISS warehouse, then ship and track schools’ items in fewer containers -that’s always good news and savings for our schools. Customs are really different from country to country; documentation requirements change all the time, and if you don’t have it figured out, you can accidentally add considerable time to delivery and cost. On behalf of our schools, the School Supply team puts a lot of energy into keeping on top of those customs requirements, constantly updating our shipping agent and freight forwarder with paperwork so that schools can get their supplies quickly and efficiently.

durability against those little guys. This year, we shipped giant scissor lifts, a couple of trucks and tractors, many pairs of Nike sneakers for one school security force... there’s never a dull year when it comes to supplying international schools. What is your favorite part about the work ISS School Supply does? My favorite part is hearing about how excited the teachers and kids are when their materials arrive. After managing orders, tracking containers, and ensuring all the shipping logistics work out, we get to know these supplies end on a school’s doorstep. We get to see how vibrant, lively, exciting and fun it is for the school body to use these materials to build up their learning community. Our School Supply team has been doing this for a long time. We’re really proud of the communities we work with, and we feel grateful for the relationships we develop with the folks at these schools. As something of an extension to the school, we get to help deliver really good programs for their students. That’s something special. --Learn how ISS School Supply can help you streamline the supply process, save on orders big and small, and equip your classrooms for success.

Any particular shipments or supply projects of note recently? We’ve had an exciting project with Cayman International School, which is opening a new Early Childhood Center in August 2020. It’s being built from the ground-up, so we’ve enjoyed helping them pick out furniture, carpets, hardware, playgrounds, and all kinds of cool features that will shape the new space. There are also always “quirky” orders every season that keep things colorful. We had to buy a large amount of cabling for a school’s construction project; one of the specifications was that it be mouse and rat proof, so we researched cable that was specifically rated for chewing

Business Innovation Weeks – taking the initiative Business School Lausanne is employing innovative teaching methods combined with pioneering educational philosophies to create the next generation of entrepreneurial business leaders As the old adage goes, change is the only constant in life. Many business and leadership experts talk of the necessity of managers to be able to lead effectively in what is now often termed as a VUCA world. This principal of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity has created the need for traditional business education to reexamine itself and look at whether established theories and models used in the field still have the relevance to meet the requirements of such a changing world. Going back over its 30-year history, Business School Lausanne (BSL) has always taken pride in challenging the way things have been done. From being the first business school in Europe to have its programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) back in 1996, to embracing the principals of sustainability in the core curriculum of its programs, BSL has always looked for the latest learnings to guide what is

­­­60

being taught to students. The use of ‘Global Megatrends’ in steering curriculum along with VUCA thinking has resulted in BSL looking at how it can best serve its pupil’s learning and broader development. An immersive exercise in new thinking One such concept is the aptly named Business Innovation Weeks (BIW) that was held on the campus recently. This exciting and issue-centred learning event involved BSL students across all programs, staff and faculty along with external representatives from NGOs, companies, entrepreneurs and institutions. During the BIW, participants advanced their thinking by working in varied groups on specific issues. The structure being via framework compromising areas such as innovation process, idea generation, business design, communications design and digital positioning. The scenario in this case was to


Business School Lausanne create, develop and potentially scale a viable start-up business by actively collaborating on business driven solutions to achieve success. One of the key themes of the BIW is the diverse teams working together towards a common goal. “It was interesting to distribute roles and decision making power in the groups, each person was able to have authority on a specific day giving a shared empowerment,” says Arman Danielyan, a current Masters in International Business student and BSL Business Administration Bachelors graduate. “To undertake peer-to-peer teaching was a whole new experience. It is one thing to give a presentation in class but to be the actual “teacher” is a whole different story!” Learning through collaboration The BIW provides an excellent example of the collaborative nature of BSL. With over 60 different nationalities attending the school, students develop an important global network for life. Added to this is a teaching staff of professors who are also experienced business practitioners, regular guest speakers and corporate visits. This combination of key resources allows students to make valuable connections and gain a deeper understanding that will assist in their preparation for their professional future. However, this collaborative outlook is not just limited to Switzerland. Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) students have the option of taking a Double Degree (in conjunction with Dublin Business School or UPEC, Paris) while Masters in International Business (MIB) participants can take up the option for an exchange at Renmin University of China in Beijing as part of their final Capstone studies. Add to this the internship options that can potentially feature in both the MIB and BBA programs and this provides excellent exposure to both global business understanding and building career skills while studying for a recognized degree from a prestigious international institution. An Entrepreneurial Mindset A constant that runs through all of the studies held at BSL and that is epitomized by the BIW activity, is that of moulding students to have the ability to think in entrepreneurial terms. Of the various qualities, that modern business requires in a VUCA environment it is perhaps this that is regarded as the most vital, -providing as it does a resilient

way forward for triggering innovation, development and growth both personally and professionally. Classes at BSL consist of up to only 22 students, which allows for personal attention and support from professors to assist in developing such an outlook among a broader skill set. By providing a unique educational experience through established methodologies coupled with creative innovations, BSL creates graduates who have a clear understanding of both their own future personal and professional development for the years to come.

How international schools can support expat teachers by providing them with health insurance In this guest Q&A piece, Arjan Toor shares the benefits of international schools offering comprehensive health insurance plans to potential teachers Starting a new life in a different country? I can relate. As a Dutchman having lived in many different locations outside of my home country for the past 12 years, I can speak from experience when I say that moving to a new country can be one of the most rewarding life experiences. Nowadays, it is becoming more and more common for expats to bring their spouse and children with them when relocating to a new place. I’ve moved with my family to another country many times myself, most recently bringing them from Hong Kong to the UK. First off, what advice would you give to expat parents when bringing their kids overseas for schooling? What we found is that many international schools have long waitlists, so it can be quite difficult to get in. Some of them will work with debentures, and potentially your

employer can support you with this financially as part of a broader relocation package. But the sooner you can enrol your children in the right school, the higher the chances of actually getting in. Next to the education system, we also looked at the location of the school – and the proximity to where you plan to live and/or work. You don’t want your children to spend hours traveling to and from school every week. Finding the best possible education for your children abroad will be a key step in ensuring your family makes a successful relocation. Remember that every country’s education system is different – so be sure to find out about the school options available for your children in your new location. Doing your research in advance will go a long way in helping you to make an informed decision.


Cigna What do you think are the biggest benefits of sending kids to international schools? I believe there are many positives of sending children to international schools. These schools can be very helpful for expat children who are not used to the language in their new country. They give children the opportunity to learn the native language while being immersed in the culture, alongside peers from many different countries. International schools are usually very diverse, and children learn so much from their interactions with other friends from all parts of the world. International schools can also broaden prospects for further studies abroad, once children reach university age. What are some of the advantages of international schools offering comprehensive health insurance to potential expat teachers, as part of an attractive employment package? With a shortage of qualified expat teachers in the field, it is crucial for international schools to offer the best possible employment packages and to also do all they can to help expat teachers settle in when they arrive in a new place. As part of a new job offer, international schools may offer comprehensive health insurance. This can be a major selling point for international schools looking to attract the best talent possible. It can also help boost staff morale and retention levels. According to the 2019 Cigna 360 Well-Being Survey, stress continues to be a universal issue for employees, with 87% of workers surveyed saying that they feel stressed.1 [1] Having a comprehensive health insurance plan will give expat teachers one less thing to worry about in their new place. With added peace of mind, workers will be less likely to feel stressed! Why should expat teachers consider getting their own individual comprehensive health insurance plan? Depending on the location, the healthcare system in a new country could be of a lower standard compared with what people may be used to. It is worth considering a comprehensive health insurance plan rather than relying on the local health provision. I always tell expats to be sure to understand the healthcare implications in their new country of residence. Some countries provide subsidised state healthcare, but some do not.

Expats often opt for an international health insurance plan that can ease much of the stress. International Health Insurance policies are ideal for those living and working abroad, providing you with consistent levels of cover – not just for emergency treatment – in many countries. For example, our customers can access the Cigna Wellbeing™ App. The app features real time video and telephone consultations so you can speak to a doctor day 1 of your expat move. We also have a 24/7/365 Customer Care Team so you can receive help, whenever and wherever you need it. Finally, are there any other pieces of advice that you could offer to international schools looking to support potential expat teachers? Research, research, research! Getting helpful advice about your new surroundings before you arrive will go a long way towards helping you feel settled once you get there. According to the 2018 Expat Insider survey2 from InterNations, the world’s leading expat network, the top 5 countries for raising an expat family are: 1. Finland 2. Austria 3. Czech Republic 4. Denmark 5. Sweden Cigna’s mission At Cigna, our mission is to improve the health, well-being and peace of mind of those we serve. We take a holistic approach in providing health benefit solutions and services that take into account whole person health. This includes giving expat parents the opportunity to focus on the important factors in their relocation, including finding the right type of schooling for their children.

Create the future Alan Cordell, International Recruitment Manager at the Carl Benz School in Germany, explains why studying Mechanical Engineering offers great opportunities Mechanical Engineering is the most diverse subject that derives its scope from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). Your job as a mechanical engineer is to make a product from an idea and bring it to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills and knowledge are needed. At the Carl Benz School of Engineering, students are challenged with the latest know-how in the exciting field of Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical engineers must understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them

­­­64

and ensure they will operate without failure. Perhaps the one skill that is the mechanical engineer’s exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion. Disciplines of Engineering Since these skills are required for virtually everything that is made, Mechanical Engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse of engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers play a central role in industries such as: • Automotive (from the car chassis to its every subsystem—engine, transmission, sensors) • Aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft) • Biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries)


Carl Benz School of Engineering • Computers and electronics (disk drives, printers, cooling systems, semiconductor tools); • Microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS (sensors, actuators, micropower generation) • Energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells) • Environmental control (HVAC, refrigeration, compressors)

air-conditioning,

• Automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control) • Manufacturing (machining, prototyping, microfabrication)

tools,

Learning Mechanical Engineering To put it simply, Mechanical Engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. With a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (International) at the Carl Benz School of Engineering, students have the possibility to specialize in either Automotive Engineering, Energy Engineering, or Global Production Management. Alongside of their studies, students can also experience AI and Industry 4.0 through the unique industry-training program “Smart Factory@Industry”. Within this training program, students get an exclusive insight into the genuine execution of an Industry 4.0 idea and can begin to prepare themselves for the future job market. Having a degree in Mechanical Engineering enables graduates to be successful in the many branches of engineering. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) currently lists 37 technical divisions, from advanced energy systems and aerospace engineering to solid-waste engineering and textile engineering. Diving Deeper into Industry 4.0 Industry 4.0 manufacturing strives to create connected technologies that can even operate without human supervision, and can even provide a warning before a malfunction arises. The four principles of Industry 4.0 are interoperability, information transparency, technical assistance, and decentralized decisions, which are also key elements in a Mechanical Engineering degree. Smart Factories are also a vision that some companies, such as Daimler, Bosch and Zeiss, are already implementing. Students of Mechanical Engineering will need the expertise and experience in progressive and modern factories to compete in the future job market. In a

Smart Factory, the machines and systems operate based on Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of devices, vehicles and other components that enable those things to communicate with each other and exchange data. Career Options for Mechanical Engineers. The scope of the Mechanical Engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options beyond some of the industries listed above. Regardless of the particular path they envision for themselves after they graduate, their education will have provided them with the creative thinking that allows them to design an exciting product or system, the analytical tools to achieve their design goals, the ability to overcome all constraints, and the teamwork needed to design, market, and produce a system. These valuable skills could also launch a career in medicine, law, consulting, management, banking, finance, and more. Study with the Best All of this and more is found at the Carl Benz School of Engineering, the Mechanical Engineering College of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). With our Summer School programs, high school students from around the world can attain first insights into the Carl Benz School and the B.Sc. of Mechanical Engineering (International) program. Come and meet us – and be the one to invent the future! Quelle: www.carlbenzschool.kit.edu/fieldofstudy.php

The questions you should ask However much a school may appeal on first sight, you still need sound information to form your judgement

Schools, particularly independent schools, attract pupils by their reputations, so most go to considerable lengths to ensure that parents are presented with an attractive image. Modern marketing techniques try to promote good points and play down (without totally obscuring) bad ones. But every Head knows that, however good the school website/prospectus is, it only serves to attract parents through the school gates. Thereafter the decision depends on what they see and hear. When you choose a school for your son or daughter, the key factor is that it will suit them. Many children and their parents are instinctively attracted (or otherwise) to a school on first sight. But even if it passes this test, and ‘conforms’ to what you are looking for in terms of location and academic, pastoral and extracurricular aspects, you will need to satisfy yourself that the school does measure up to what your instincts tell you.

­­­66

Choosing an international school can prompt additional questions for parents and students alike. The international school’s intake is not restricted by geographical or educational authority boundaries. International schools have the added benefit of being able to embrace a sense of national pride while encouraging a respect of and interest in international thinking, standards and cultures. Research we have carried out over the years suggests that in many cases the most important factor in choosing a school is the impression given by the Head. As well as finding out what goes on in a school, parents need to be reassured by the aura of confidence that they expect from a Head. How they discover the former may help them form their opinion of the latter. So how a Head answers your questions is important. Based on our research, we have drawn up a list of varied


The questions you should ask points on which you may need to be satisfied. The order in which they appear below does not necessarily reflect their degree of importance to each parent, but how the Head answers them may help you draw your own conclusions: • H  ow accessible is the Head, whose personality is seen by most parents as setting the ‘tone’ of the school? • Will the child fit in? • What is the overall atmosphere? • To which organisations does the school belong?

• How does the school cope with pupils who do not work? • What is the attitude to religion? • What is the attitude to physical fitness and games? • What sports are offered and what are the facilities? • What are the extracurricular activities? • W  hat cultural or other visits are arranged away from the school?

• How has it been accredited?

• W  hat steps are taken to encourage specific talent in music, the arts or sport?

• What is the ratio of teachers to pupils?

• What is the uniform?

• What are the qualifications of the teaching staff?

• W  hat steps are taken to ensure that pupils take pride in their personal appearance?

• H ow often does the school communicate with parents through reports, parent/teacher meetings or other visits? • W  hat are the school’s exam results? What are the criteria for presenting them? Are they consistent over the years? • How does the school cope with pupils’ problems? • What sort of academic advice is available? • What is the school’s attitude to discipline? • H  ave there been problems with drugs or sex? How have they been dealt with? • W  hat positive steps are taken to encourage good manners, behaviour and sportsmanship? • Is progress accelerated for the academically bright?

• What are the timetable and term dates? • What are the boarding facilities like? • I s there a dedicated person to look after new international students? • D  oes the school have a recommended guardian service? • D oes the school have a dedicated and strong pastoral team? • Is it possible to have the names and addresses of parents with children at the school to approach them for an opinion? • D  oes the school have a dedicated teacher for Mother Tongue languages or ESL?

We foster an atmosphere in which mistakes are not reproached but seen rather as an essential part of a child’s development. We believe in playing to pupils strengths: in drawing out what is within each person rather than seeing a child as a vessel to be filled. The Nursery provides a highly stimulating and welcoming environment for children to learn through interaction with each other and adults. They learn through play with songs, games and through the enthusiasm of their teachers. We work in small groups and one-on-one with each child at the younger end of the school to ensure that pupils moving to Year 1 are: 1) Able to read and enjoy reading. 2) Able to write and enjoy writing. 3)  Are able to enjoy school and are confident in their abilities.

At the RiverBank, every child is important and are carried along by our dedicated team. The development of a total child is our aim and we work towards equipping them with skills by offering a variety of extra curricular activities based on the British National curriculum. We make provision for children with Special Educational Needs and the gifted and talented children. Our school is registered with Cambridge International Education with whom our Year 6 pupils sit the Cambridge Checkpoint Examination. The RiverBank School is a member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS), The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Independent School Association (ISA).

We know who we are, we know what we have committed to, and we authentically and enthusiastically endeavor to pursue our mission: to inspire continuous inquiry; to empower students to be courageous, optimistic, and full of integrity; to pursue dreams and to enhance the lives of others.

ASB graduates are accepted at the world’s finest colleges and universities

including MIT, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Cornell, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Emory, Duke, McGill, University College London, Harvard University, Princeton University, University of Sydney, and the University of Paris and contribute personally and professionally across a diversity of fields.

and the IB College (Diploma Programme/ Career-related Programme) to pursue an education in English that, nonetheless, sustains close contact with the culture of the host country. The Amman Baccalaureate School is a school where modern educational theory and practice are implemented and enthusiastically embraced. In its officially recognised role as a ‘pioneer school’, ABS pilots new material, methods and approaches, and so paves the way for other schools to follow. Emphasis on bilingualism at every stage promotes knowledge of different cultures, traditions and values, and this fosters openness, understanding and tolerance. Aligned with the School’s vision to be “recognised as a leading pioneer school”, ABS piloted the World Academy of Sport (WAoS) Athlete Friendly Education Centre (AFEC) accreditation in 2015 and the Council of International School’s International Protocol accreditation in 2017. Both accreditations were deemed a

huge success. ABS was re-accredited by WAoS AFEC in 2018. The ABS has a unique curriculum model for a bilingual (Arabic/English) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is amongst a select few schools worldwide to offer all four IB Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, CP). Involvement with each and every student as an individual is a guiding principle at ABS. The 1:6 teacher to student ratio allows this principle to be a reality. This compares very favourably with institutions of similar academic standing, nationally and internationally. ABS teachers are qualified and trained educators, coming from open-minded and global backgrounds. Amman Baccalaureate School also offers an international section for Grades 6-12. This section is for those students that do not have the level of Arabic to cope with an ABS bilingual education, but wish to benefit from our outstanding holistic educational experience.

(Founded 1981)

The Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) is a private, fee-paying day school, licensed by the Jordanian Ministry of Education. It is coeducational and prepares its students for the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Careerrelated Programme and courses as school leaving qualifications. In addition to providing an academic education of high quality, the school attaches considerable importance to creative, physical and community service activities, and offers a wide and developing range of facilities and opportunities in these areas. ABS was founded in 1981 with the aim of providing a bilingual education that would meet, in quality and breadth, the highest international standards, whilst remaining firmly rooted in the Arab heritage. At the same time, the school has increasingly attracted students from the international community who wish to take advantage of the opportunity offered in the Middle Years School (MYP)

ESF Hillside International Kindergarten has eight classes, four in K1 and four in K2. Children start K1 in the year in which they are three years old. Children attend the kindergarten on a part time basis, five morning or five afternoon sessions per week, with sessions being three hours long. The school community is diverse with children and staff coming from a variety of ethnic groups, and we are able to draw on this culture richness to enhance teaching and learning. In January 2014 we were authorised as an IB World School, delivering the Primary

Years Programme. Through their inquiry into four of the six PYP transdisciplinary themes each year, the children in both K1 and K2 develop knowledge and understanding, as well as skills and attitudes that they can use in Kindergarten and take with them into their future learning. At ESF Hillside International Kindergarten, play is the primary mode of learning and the learning environment is set up to promote inquiry through a broad range of play opportunities that promote creativity, critical thinking, and communication. At Hillside the students

develop their sense of self, and further develop the skills necessary to nurture positive friendships with other children. They become more aware of their place in the wider-world. Staff work with children on adult-initiated inquiries and to support those that are child-initiated. The attributes of the learner profile have a significant place within our school and are acknowledged in the actions and achievements of both our children and staff.

Programme. Through their inquiry into four of the six PYP transdisciplinary themes each year, the children in both K1 and K2 develop knowledge and understanding, as well as skills and attitudes that they can use in kindergarten and take with them into their future learning. At Tsing Yi, play is the primary mode of learning and the learning environment is set up to promote inquiry through a broad range of play opportunities that promote creativity, critical thinking, and communication.

Hoi An International School 37787 Vietnam

Hoi An International School is one of the first purpose-built campuses in Central Vietnam. When building our campus we tried to combine our vision of holistic education with the heritage of Hoi An. Our vision was to preserve the existing Hoi An structure and to create an environment that was functional, environmentally friendly and sustainable. This could only be achieved by up-cycling and reusing existing materials which mirrors our school ethos even today. Our grounds have been specially designed to incorporate spaces where students can gain hands-on experience in shaping their natural environment while focusing on their academics, creativity, and living a healthy lifestyle. Our grounds are lined with lush gardens and feature large, open spaces, giving our students a place where they can learn in a safe, spacious and healthy environment. Our uniquely designed Early and Primary Years Curricula is supported through the International Baccalaureate framework using a transdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. Real life doesn’t happen in isolation, and neither should learning. In the International Primary Years Programme, the students will cover six Transdisciplinary Themes, whereas our Early Years students only cover four. Who We Are How We Express Ourselves How the World Works How We Organize Ourselves Where We are in Place and Time Sharing the Planet Each unit offers a specific set of content and knowledge that we want our students to understand. We view learning in the Early Years as a continuum. Students readiness is key to success.

We aim to ensure every student is known, nurtured, and encouraged to turn their abilities into achievements. School Mission Our mission statement is “Leadership for a better world”. It is defined by six attributes that we expect our students to demonstrate during their time at Harrow and beyond. The leadership attributes are: contributing positively to community; applying knowledge with compassion; solving problems collaboratively; solving

­­­­­­­­­­118

problems creatively; making just choices; facing challenges with determination. Academic Progression Harrow Beijing offers a British-based education to students aged from two to eighteen.

Many of our courses take themes and skills from IGCSE and introduce them early to students. In Year 10 and Year 11, students follow the GCSE and/or IGCSE courses. • Throughout the two years in Sixth Form (Y12 to Y13), students study the A-Level programme and prepare for life at university.

meet the needs of accelerated learners as well as students requiring learner support. At HKA, we take seriously the belief that every student is unique, and we celebrate diversity, nurture wellbeing and embrace inclusion throughout our community. Students participate in a wide variety of extracurricular, musical, performing arts and sports activities, travelling to represent HKA on an international level. A warm and engaging community, HKA embraces learning in everything we do. Professional development is core to our culture of educational leadership, with administrators, teachers and parents taking part in and leading various learning opportunities on campus and throughout the region. HKA’s highly engaged parent community are also integral to the

school as volunteers. Whether serving on the board of trustees, reading in the classroom, leading community events, supporting the theatre or coaching HKA athletes, parents are partners who enrich our school in many ways. HKA is committed to maintaining a diverse, collaborative and captivating learning environment in which students become adaptable, confident and tolerant, equipping them for a sustainable future. Our students are immersed in a rigorous academic programme that challenges them to develop a strong sense of their own identity, see learning as a joyful endeavour, seek personal relevance through inquiry and engage in responsible action. We invite you to join our welcoming community and see what learning can be!

Coeducational Day & Boarding Age range of pupils: 2–18 years

Wellington College International Hangzhou officially opened its doors to pupils in September 2018, offering a worldclass international education for children of expatriate families from the ages of 2 to 18. In Pre-Prep and Prep-School, the College follows the English National Curriculum, which is enhanced through the cross-curricula International Primary Curriculum. In Senior School, pupils will complete the IGCSE and then choose to follow either the IB Diploma Programme or A Levels, depending on their needs. As with all Wellington College schools, the Wellington Values and Identities form the core of the holistic education provided by Wellington College International Hangzhou. Wellington College has developed a reputation for high academic results

­­­­­­­­­­152

and a wide-variety of co-curricular opportunities, coupled with a strong pastoral care and wellbeing programme. In 2006, Wellington College in England introduced wellbeing as a core subject, a tradition continued in Hangzhou. This well-rounded approach to the overall development of pupils forms the core of the unique Wellington approach to holistic education. Campus and Facilities Wellington College’s tradition is to provide challenging, invigorating and enjoyable learning opportunities, featuring academic excellence and a wide range of cocurricular activities such as sport, arts and music. Wellington College International Hangzhou can afford pupils access to these opportunities through the worldclass facilities that it boasts. The Wellington

College Hangzhou campus covers over 74,000 square metres and comprises state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to rival top international schools around the globe. While the appearance and design of the building are inspired by the distinctive architecture at the Wellington College in England; inside, like in England, the buildings reveal the very best standards in 21st century education. The science laboratories, the art rooms and the design technology suites are designed, first and foremost, to encourage an enjoyment in both practical and theoretical work. They also provide that extra level of creativity and ambition that great scientists, artists and designers strive for and achieve. Sport is another major Wellington priority. The facilities here are second to none, with a 1,500 square metre sports hall, standard football pitch, 400-metre all-weather synthetic running track, basketball and badminton courts, and two swimming pools, including a 25 metre, six-lane competition pool with Colorado competition timing system. In addition to boasting excellent sports facilities, the College’s Performing Arts Centre caters for Wellington’s musicians, dancers and thespians. The 560-seat Wellington College Hangzhou Grand Theatre boasts world-class audio-visual equipment and orchestra lift. The theatre is supported by dedicated practice rooms, several dance studios, the Black Box theatre for rehearsals, 12 sound-proof music rehearsal rooms and more. Few schools in the world are blessed with the resources available at Wellington College International Hangzhou; all designed to support a wide-ranging cocurricular activities programme, both after school and at weekends.


China Co-curricular Activities and Wellington Academy Programme Wellington College Hangzhou runs cocurricular activities (CCAs) as a core element of the curriculum that supports the exploration of pupils’ individual interests. These CCAs involve an impressive array of activities utilising the talents of staff and pupils alike. CCAs provide an exciting opportunity for pupils to explore new interests and develop their skills. As each activity has a variety of age groups, this time allows Wellingtonians to connect with other pupils across the College. An additional opportunity to explore a holistic range of interests comes from the Wellington Academy Programme. The Academy is separate from the CCA programme and provides a specialised training environment for children who wish to take their skills to a more elite level. Run by Carlton Palmer, ex-Premier League footballer, the Academy provides a fantastic opportunity for Wellington College pupils and children from the wider Hangzhou community to be taught by coaches and teachers with incredible experience and expertise. Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Programme Pastoral care is central to the College’s ethos; influencing every aspect of our role as educators and the developmental process of the pupils in our care. In keeping with tradition from Wellington College in England, the House system provides a central pillar through which

pastoral care is organised, ensuring that Wellingtonians become crucial members of a team from the moment they join the College. Over the course of the year, House-based competitions and events bring Wellingtonians together, not just in their Houses and across year groups, but in a wider sense, involving the whole community. In addition, the pastoral care programme involves House Tutors, Support Teachers, Special Educational Needs staff, Homeroom teachers and more; all guided and organised by the Head of Pastoral Care to ensure that every child

is treated as an individual, and receives an education tailored to their needs. The pastoral care programme, coupled with our wellbeing lessons and approach to learning that embodies the Wellington Values and Identity, provides a healthy and stimulating environment where every child will have a sense of belonging and fulfilment. We welcome enquiries and will arrange personalised campus tours by appointment.

Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS Shanghai) is one of the leading international schools in China. We are renowned for offering a progressive programme of international education. The school’s five campuses, which are located in prime areas of both the Puxi and Pudong areas of Shanghai, collectively cater for Kindergarten, Primary, and Secondary students, ages 2 to 18. As a school for the children of international families, our students come from over 50 countries and regions and are educated by world-class teachers from more than 20 countries. Our international

curriculum helps to develop individuals with multicultural perspectives. The school’s unique multicultural and bilingual approach to education, with a focus on both English and Chinese language learning, is recognised worldwide and helps distinguish our students in a globally competitive environment. YCIS students consistently achieve ‘Top in the World’ academic results and outstanding extra-curricular successes. YCIS Shanghai opened in 1993 as the first independent international school in the city officially recognised by and

registered with the Chinese government. The school was established to bring the educational philosophy, objectives, and pedagogy of Yew Chung to Shanghai’s international families. For a quarter of a century, YCIS Shanghai has grown rapidly and now has a student body of over 2,500 students. YCIS Shanghai is a fully-accredited school, recognised by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS). In addition, the Secondary School is authorised as an accredited Cambridge Assessment Examinations Centre for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and is an International Baccalaureate World School, offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). We are proud to offer these world-class programmes as part of our international curriculum. Notably, YCIS is the only school in China to have received the Cambridge Award for Excellence in Education. YCIS is at the forefront of implementing the ‘Learning Communities’ model, with the support of the award-winning architectural firm, Fielding Nair International (FNI), the global leader in educational facilities planning and architectural design. The school’s newest campus, Ronghua Campus, which opened in 2018, was purpose-built as a Learning Community school, and features FNI’s innovative Learning Community configuration, with modifiable classrooms and multi-site teaching spaces, creating agile, learner-centred environments and fostering the enquiry-based learning environment for which YCIS Shanghai

­­­­­­­­­­154


China is known. All four other YCIS Shanghai campuses are integrating Learning Community spaces into their facilities. Over the past several years, the Learning Community model has emerged as one of the most important trends in education worldwide. According to recent research from Harvard University, young learners benefit immensely from studying in Learning Communities as the environment helps connect students and enable their shared learning through collaborative inquiry, in which the students work together to learn and solve problems. This approach helps them learn how to listen and work together while also gaining social confidence – one of the essential traits identified by educators as missing from more traditional teaching approaches. As a pioneer in realising and implementing the Learning Community model, YCIS Shanghai is equipped to continue leading the future of international education.

Education should be a way of life. School should be about the development of the whole person. When John Corlette founded Aiglon College in 1949, he had a unique vision: to combine the special character of mountain life with a new vision for education. Aiglon today guards this original vision and has grown into one of the world’s most distinctive boarding schools. Spirited, independent and a not-forprofit organisation, Aiglon’s aim toward the balanced development of mind, body and spirit works to create a principledriven environment where students and teachers alike are encouraged toward academic excellence, pursuit of physical

­­­­­­­­­­174

challenge and the learning born through a deeply international culture. Aiglon is an English-speaking school styled in the tradition of British education. Students follow the globally recognised IGCSE and International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes while simultaneously developing practical skills that integrate curriculum into all areas of life. The focused programme allows each student to access a personalised course of study. The character of Aiglon students is forged on the mountain. Central to its educational philosophy, the uniquely crafted expedition programme utilises Aiglon’s location in the Swiss Alps to engage students in activities designed

to develop their sense of challenge and responsibility in a highly practical environment. From snowshoeing to summiting high peaks, Aiglon students do it all. The school’s professional College & Careers Counselling team works closely with each student to help them understand and succeed in the university application process. Through these efforts, our students have access to the world’s top universities.

École Jeannine Manuel Lille is a nonprofit coeducational school founded in 1992 and welcoming pupils from nursery to Grade 12. As the sister school of École Jeannine Manuel Paris, they have the same educational project and the same mission: promote international understanding through bilingual (French/English) education. An associated UNESCO school, École Jeannine Manuel Lille is the only nondenominational independent school in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, with over 800 pupils representing 40 nationalities and every major cultural tradition. The school’s academic excellence matches its diversity: École Jeannine Manuel Lille achieves excellent performances, both at the French Baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate. The school is accredited by the French Ministry of Education, the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

The campus of the school extends over 3.5 hectares and includes a boarding house, a restaurant, two football fields, a multi-sport room, and high standard sports facilities and equipment. The boarding house currently welcomes 111 pupils from 6th to 12th grades. Each year, École Jeannine Manuel Lille welcomes non-French speaking students. Over the years, École Jeannine Manuel has developed a program to suit the needs of these students, for whom the emotional challenge of relocation is often as great as its academic challenge. Thanks to their French teachers and their methods, the students will be fluent in French in a few months. The lower and middle school follow the French national curriculum with several exceptions: English is taught every day and, in middle school, experimental sciences, history and geography are taught in English. The curriculum is enriched at all levels, not only with a more advanced English language and literature curriculum, but also,

for example, with Chinese language instruction (compulsory in grades 3-45), an integrated science programme in lower school, and independent research projects in middle school. In upper school, tenth graders follow the French national curriculum, albeit taught 50% in French and 50% in English. In 11th grade, pupils choose between the French track (international option of the French baccalaureate (OIB)) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). Approximately 25% of our pupils opt for the IBDP. (Please note that, since the IBDP does not receive any government subsidies, its tuition is three times the French track tuition.) Admission Although admission is competitive, every effort is made to reserve space for international applicants, including children of families who expect to remain in France for a limited period of time and wish to combine a cultural immersion in French education with the ability to reenter their own school systems and excel.

École Jeannine Manuel in London is a French, bilingual, international school which opened its doors in September 2015 on Bedford Square with the objective to bring a unique perspective in the landscape of international schools in London. We welcome pupils from all nationalities, cultural traditions and native languages. Everything we do at École Jeannine Manuel is driven by our mission, which consists in “promoting international understanding through the bilingual education of a multicultural community of students, the fostering of pedagogical innovation, and the constant exploration of best practices in the context of an everchanging global environment.” To achieve that, our curriculum is based on an enriched version of the international sections programs of the French Ministry of Education. The English, Science and Chinese programs were

developed by our Paris sister school, a UNESCO associated school founded in 1954 and recognized as the top French Lycée for the seventh consecutive year. In History, the curriculum is complemented so pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Co-curricular activities include sports – with outside facilities at the pupil’s disposal – as well as a wide range of after-school clubs. English and French are used equally in class. We welcome non-French-speaking students at all levels and beginners in English up to Year 7. Our aim is to bring pupils to a native proficiency – oral and written – in both languages because a true bilingual education enhances pupils’ capacity for abstract, conceptual thinking and develops a sense of nuance, nurtured by exposure to multiple perspectives. The key drivers of our school’s pedagogy are coherence and

innovation. Inspired by current research in cognitive sciences and by best practices from around the world or designed by our school’s pedagogues, our teaching methods aim at making pupils think, do and share. Our international teams of teachers stimulate new ideas that lead to a creative, pioneering education: handson manipulations in math, inquiry-based learning in the sciences, and teamwork are among the practices that foster pupil engagement and growth. École Jeannine Manuel welcomes pupils from Nursery to Year 12, with the opening of Year 13 planned for September 2020. Sixth Formers will take either the International Option of the French Baccalaureate or the International Baccalaureate. Our newly opened Upper School (Year 10 – Year 13) building is located on Russell Square, steps away from our Bedford Square campus.

students from over 60 different countries live and learn together. Students at EF Academy Oxford follow the IB Diploma or A-Level program and they are guided through the course selection process by experienced pathway managers and course coordinators who help them choose classes that are in line with their university and career goals. Their studies are enhanced by a dynamic enrichment program that includes visits to the museums, theaters and galleries in Oxford, as well as Begbroke Science Park, the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and the Mini BMW works in Cowley. Other academic extension opportunities to see plays and attend lectures or workshops at the University of Oxford and University College London are organized on a regular basis.

Our graduates have gone on to attend universities such as the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and Imperial College London; all of our students receive acceptance to university degree programs, many for highly competitive courses such as economics, engineering or medicine. Our students are supported by a team of encouraging faculty members who offer guidance on everything from homesickness to course selection. Dedicated university guidance counselors work together with students to help them prepare the best applications possible. Each student is supported by an academic tutor who monitors their academic progress and general wellbeing.

At the heart of our philosophy is that each student will be known personally and valued by his or her teachers and the entire school community as an individual with unique talents and abilities.

European School of Mol 34561 Belgium

The European School of Mol welcomes ALL students. Our student body is composed of children from local families, as well as from European and overseas families who live and work in the area. The daily school buses bring students from Antwerp and Eindhoven to Mol. Boarding facilities and host families are available for those students who live a considerable distance from the school. The development of our students into active and conscientious citizens of the world is at the centre of our educational philosophy at the European School Mol. ES Mol has a Nursery school for pupils aged 3 to 6 years; a Primary school offering a 5-year curriculum for children aged 6 to 11; and a Secondary school with a 7-year curriculum for students aged 11 to 18. ES Mol is smaller than most European and International schools and as such has a family feel, where students and staff know each other personally. The classes are smaller than average-sized classes and are tailored to the needs of the individual students. Our school has four language sections: German, Dutch, French and English. All students are taught in the language of their section, in the main by mother tongue speakers. Apart from the mother tongue programme, the courses and their content are identical in each section. ES Mol also offers mother tongue tuition to pupils whose mother tongue does not correspond to one of the four sections (certain conditions apply). From the first year of Primary school, ES Mol offers a first foreign language. A second foreign language is studied from the first year of Secondary onwards. The older students may study up to 5 languages. Furthermore, throughout their school careers, our students are encouraged to develop strong mathematical and

scientific skills, in the classroom but also outside the classroom: during international science symposia, mathematics contests, and via on- campus science events, which are organised in cooperation with local and international institutions and companies. The curriculum at the European schools is structured in such a way so as to allow students to return to their own national systems at any stage during the course of their academic studies. State of the art classrooms and laboratories, libraries, well equipped ICT rooms and excellent sports facilities guarantee a comfortable learning environment for students and staff, allowing them to achieve their full potential. Our green campus and beautiful, natural surroundings contribute to the serene atmosphere which envelops the school. Each year our graduates leave ES Mol knowing that they are well prepared to cope with new challenges at universities of their choice, within Europe or overseas. Our Careers teachers guide each student individually through the process of

university selection and assist in making the right choices after Secondary school. At ES Mol, we believe in the Latin saying, “Mens Sana in Corpore Sano” (a healthy mind in a healthy body). Sport is a great way to build more than muscles: relationships, leadership and teamwork skills all benefit from true sportsmanship. At the disposal of our students are:3 sports halls, 2 tennis courts, basketball and football fields, a 400m running track, a 25m swimming pool, as well as acres of grass pitches and forest. At ES Mol, we aim to provide an allround education, not only in the classroom but also outside school, not only for older students but for the younger ones too. Our students bake, run, skate, paint, create and sell products during Christmas markets and other charity events. Eurosport and the European Schools Science Symposium are also an occasion to meet students from other European Schools. Older students debate political issues in political simulations (MEC,MUNOM, UNISS) on campus or abroad (New York, Strasbourg, Frankfurt).

Our mission as a school is to provide an exceptional education that draws out the unique potential of each student, and we do this through innovation, collaboration and community. To be innovative is to dare to explore, to have the courage to discover, and to value and learn from mistakes. We nurture this culture, always asking how learning

and teaching can be more effective, embracing difficult questions and demanding more effective, researchled, answers. We stretch our students with a challenging IB curriculum, enriched by a fully integrated digital culture; we continue to develop a positive, studentcentred wellbeing programme; and we provide the opportunity for all students to explore new ideas, and have their own, self-directed, personal learning time. Collaboration is at the core of our practice, as life-long learners and as teachers. We intentionally create an environment that encourages and develops collaborative learning and teaching. This exists not only in our classrooms, but also in our open learning spaces, in our student-mentor coaching dialogues, and through the passion of our student leadership and engagement. All this is enabled and enhanced by our commitment to digital learning, using the most innovative apps and technologies to inspire more effective ways of creating and learning together. Halcyon includes the whole community in the collaborative process of innovation. We champion an understanding that the best way to succeed is to do so together. Just as we value the possibility of every student to fulfil their unique potential, we actively nurture the same opportunities for growth for everyone in our community – learning together to build and support our school. Halcyon takes pride in its commitment to the environment. We constantly seek new ways to mitigate our impact on the world and to educate and inspire our community to pass it forward.

A good relationship between the school and the parents, a rich choice of extra-curricular activities and many opportunities to become involved in the school, the local and the international community provide a stimulating and caring environment in which students can develop their potential to the full. As a CIS-accredited school, HautLac is committed to delivering high quality education and catering for our students’ different needs and educational requirements. We strive to provide our students with the academic pathways

that will enable them to reach their goals, as well as the transferable skills needed to succeed in life. Infant and Primary students may follow a truly bilingual French-English pathway taught by native French and English speakers on a one day-one day schedule, or a predominantly English pathway. In both cases, the programme is the same as teachers plan together by year group. Subjects are also taught in both English and French in the Secondary section, but according to different academic programmes. Lower Secondary students may choose to follow the IB Middle Years Programme with or without specific Swiss Bilingual Cycle subjects depending on

whether they wish to obtain an IB Diploma or a Swiss Cantonal Maturité. Upper Secondary students follow the IB Diploma programme, and may obtain not only the IB Diploma but also the US High School Diploma if thinking of studying in the US or Canada. Furthermore, as the first Athlete-Friendly Education Centre (AFEC) accredited by the World Academy of Sport (WAoS) in Switzerland, Haut-Lac is able to offer student-athletes aged 11-18 a more flexible schedule to help them pursue both their academic studies and intense training programmes.

Impington International College is an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ sixth form and a flagship provider for not only the IB DP but also the IB Careers Programme, the ground-breaking combination of vocational and academic courses designed to give students the best of both worlds; the specialism of the BTEC courses coupled with the range and breadth of the IB courses. The first school in the world to have a student gain an offer from Cambridge University for the Careers Programme; Impington International College celebrates a high level of Russell group university placements every year.

Multilingual Montessori Education Montessori education offers a holistic approach helping children develop all aspects of their personality. A wellbalanced child is a happy child, ready to develop to his full potential and eventually make a difference for the greater good! We take into account that different ages have the ability to reach different developmental milestones in various ways. The principle in the toddler communities and pre-schools is to offer children the opportunity to develop in harmony with their own rhythm and pace, becoming independent, with respect for all. In Primary, a vast international curriculum is offered, allowing for personal interest, decision-making, autonomous learning and related responsibilities. Thereby

developing ownership, joy in learning and self-esteem in a supported and stress-free environment. IB World School Between our five campuses, located in Woluwe, Tervuren, and WezembeekOppem, we offer a bilingual curriculum to children aged 0 to 18. The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme allow our oldest students to benefit from low student to teacher ratios, ensuring individualised education and mentorship at all stages of their development. Aesthetic Learning Environments Custom-renovated historical buildings offer attractive and stimulating environments to the children, helping them to develop whilst laying the

academic foundations in all subjects. Respect for learning styles is important and emphasis is placed on the development of the different intelligences. Individualised Education Our highly qualified teachers offer a personal and warm atmosphere. Children and older students are allowed to be whom they are meant to be and are given assistance to develop the skills to balance their opportunities. Aside from education on the cutting edge, the school offers a bus service with door to door pick up, musical instruments for all students and an After School Hours Programme till 18.30 including outdoor play, language emersion, cooking and lots of creative projects.

in addition to the IB Diploma. ISBerne also offers this US High School Diploma to successful graduates of its affiliate distance learning programme, ISBerne Online. Admission to ISBerne is based upon two criteria; the potential of the applicant to benefit from the educational services provided and the capacity of the school to meet the educational needs of the applicant.

These traits, combined with an ISBerne education, will prepare students for the future, teach them cultural

appreciation and enable them to work with others. Graduates from ISBerne are regularily accepted to top university around the world. The ISBerne curriculum reflects a carefully considered balance between guided inquiry and the acquisition of essential skills.

The curriculum is supported by an expansive extra-curricular After School Activities Programme as well as competitive sports teams which compete against teams across Switzerland in the Swiss Group of International Schools (SGIS) circuit. To support our curriculum, and the future technology of learning, ISBerne has moved to a new purpose-built campus which was completed in March 2017. This new campus allows for continued growth in enrollment and better supports current conduits of learning, such as the new 1 to 1 Laptop initiative, online elective courses, and the advancements in the technology that will accompany future generations. As an IB World School, ISBerne takes its commitment to internationalism very seriously. The diversity of cultures that make up the school community requires an appreciation, acceptance and respect of oneself and others. ISBerne prides itself on developing positive and enriching relationships between teachers, students and parents. Through choices made, daily operations and the philosophy embraced, the school places the child at the center of all it does.

This is most evident in the way in which our highly qualified mother-tongue teachers and inquisitive students work towards a common goal of academic success which is seamlessly balanced with an inherent commitment to active global citizenship at every level. Although all classrooms are fitted with smart TVs and students bring tablets or laptops to school, we use technology in a blended approach where we feel it adds value to teaching and learning and not merely to replace traditional methods (yes, we do use books and, yes, we do talk to one another). All this takes place in our city-centre

campus – a stylish and colourful factory conversion – which has been specifically designed to foster collaborative approaches to teaching and learning. Our science laboratories are fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and we also boast carefully designed on-site spaces which support the delivery of our ReggioInspired Early Years Curriculum, three beautiful libraries, as well as studios for visual arts, drama and music, supported by a brand new sports complex. That said, living in such a culturally rich part of the world, we take many opportunities to knock down our classroom walls and learn from opportunities in the local and not-solocal area.

The International School of Ticino is a special and exciting place to be. We are the first and only accredited International Baccalaureate (IB), Primary Years Programme (PYP) School in Ticino, Switzerland, with exciting plans for growth and development as an IB school. Here at the International School of Ticino we place the student at the centre of all we do to facilitate them to become lifelong learners. We achieve this through our school culture, which is rooted in the IB Mission statement, which states: “The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.” The school opened as a kindergarten in 2014, as a feeder school to the

International School Como in Italy, which had been in operation since 2002. The school was established to offer the local and international residents of Ticino an IB education. As of 2017 the International school of Ticino became independent, and with IS Como, joined the education group Inspired, who educate over 38,000 students in 51 schools worldwide. This grounding and combination with a leading education group has laid the foundations for the special community of learning which we see today in our new campus. The school now accommodates students from Kindergarten, 3 years old, to 14, offering the IB PYP and MYP programme. The design and build of the new campus have drawn upon our foundations, the IB mission and the vision of the school; Inspiring the extraordinary.

We accommodate our students in a facilitated student-centred learning environment, where we equip the child to develop in the international sector or in line with Ticino requirements. The opening of our new campus has enabled the International school of Ticino to open middle and high schools, becoming a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) in the coming years. This will enable your child to study at our school from the age of 3-18. The international School of Ticino is a special and exciting place to be and we look forward to welcoming you to our community for a school visit, trial day and enrolment.

What makes us different, however, is a combination of things: our size, a genuine focus on the needs of the individual, and the fact that we really understand boys and how to get the very best out of them. It is a potent trio. It is what enables us to know our boys really well and to understand what makes them tick. It is why we can support them in a way that is material and motivating to them. It is the reason your son will strive for personal excellence and want to be the best

Our mission is to provide a caring community for every boy, which treats him as an individual, unearths and tends his talents, encourages him to pursue excellence in all he does, and enables him to really flourish. Our community’s wellbeing is central; without it no one will ever achieve their best. That’s why wellbeing underpins everything we do. Our boys thrive because they are known, understood, valued, and supported in everything they do. Merchiston is a remarkable school where boys make lifelong friends and community connections, whilst gaining a world-class, global, outward-looking education.

We would love to talk to you about your son and, more importantly, talk with him to work out what makes him tick, discuss where he wants to go next and make sure he has the toolkit to get there. Merchiston’s young men leave us as rounded individuals, not only having achieved the highest level of personal academic success, but with a sense of who they are and with respect for others, having learnt what it means to have true integrity and character. Our success proves that what we do works. ‘A balanced curriculum, excellent pastoral care and a high A level pass rate make Merchiston one of the UK’s leading independent schools’ – www. ukboardingschools.com

Queen Elizabeth’s School (QES) is an infant and junior school with its own traditions, identity and values, aiming at providing its pupils with a solid base for acquiring the skills and aptitudes needed academically and socially in adult life. Special relevance is given to the process of learning English as a Second Language and the development of a bilingual and inter-cultural education, in an increasingly globalised society. QES was set up in 1935 by Margaret Denise Lester and is currently owned by the Fundação Denise Lester charity trust. Miss Lester built this school bearing in mind the strengthening of the ties between Portugal and England, aiming at providing Portuguese children with a good knowledge of the English language and culture. At present Queen Elizabeth’s school welcomes children from different nationalities and runs the school respecting the core ideals set by the founder in accordance with the ongoing international educational policies and challenges. Our school offers: Day Care, Nursery, Reception and Pre-primary. The methodology used is an early partial immersion and topic-based one to assure that an exciting and stimulating learning

­­­­­­­­­­230

environment is delivered. The children’s progress is assessed regularly whereby general objectives and specific tasks are set to ensure children become familiar with the school routines and reach their full potential in school activities. There is a strong emphasis on oral practice and production, which is developed through the learning tools of role-play, songs, storytelling and drama. At the end of the pre-primary cycle children can understand and respond to basic instructions; engage in basic daily routines in English; sing familiar English children’s songs and nursery rhymes; understand familiar fairy tales and stories in English; talk about themselves, their school and household; and identify aspects of the English culture. Pre-school pupils are prepared for the Trinity Stars: Young Performers in English, by Trinity College London, confirming the focus given to the development of communication skills through drama. The school has adopted the Cambridge Primary Curriculum, which compliments and fits in with the National Curriculum requirements in the subjects of Primary Maths, Primary Science and English as a Second Language. The

children have nine hours and a half of English. In addition, 3rd grade students can still attend the English clubs two hours a week and 4th grade students can attend the English clubs three hours a week. The purpose of these clubs is to further expand our students’ knowledge of the English language through extended quality exposure to English. At the end of years 2, 3, 4 the children can also take the Cambridge English Young Learners Tests (Starters, Movers and Flyers respectively). Also, 4th-grade-students are prepared for Trinity College London Language Exam in Integrated Skills in English (ISE Foundation). The school also provides extra-curricular English classes for former students in preparation for: the Trinity College London Language Exams, namely the Integrated Skills in English (ISE I), Graded Examination in Spoken English (GESE VII) and ISE II; and the Cambridge University Examinations: First Certificate of English (FCE) and the Certificate in Advanced English (CAE). Our pupils are also given the opportunity to prepare for the prep tests, grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3 examinations in piano and classical guitar by the internationally renowned Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

About QE Set in more than 220 acres of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate has provided students with a vibrant and supportive school community since 1912. We welcome girls and boys into boarding from Year 3 (aged 7 years) and support them through our four schools – Chapter House (up to Year 5), King’s Magna (Year 6 to 9), The College and Faculty (both Year 10 to 13) – to become resilient, confident and independent young adults who are well prepared for their future. QE is known locally, nationally and internationally as a place that promotes the highest standards in all that it does.

Our reputation has grown considerably over recent years, and we believe this is due to our drive to ensure that our outcomes for QE students, across all areas of their endeavour and aspiration, match those of the world’s best schools. The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has awarded the Collegiate the top grading of ‘Excellent’ across all schools and areas, following an inspection in February this year (2019), praising the pupils’ outstanding academic achievements and personal development. Academic Our exam results speak for themselves, consistently ranking us amongst the top 10 day and boarding schools in the UK, with students benefiting from wonderful study,

boarding and leisure facilities as part of campus life. Students in the academically-focused College achieved 96% A*/B at A-level and 97% D*/D in the small number of BTECs taken to enrich the A-level programmes (equivalent in university points to A* and A grades at A-Level) in 2018. The Faculty, which offers a wider range of academic, creative and vocational courses, achieved 91% A*/B at A-Level and 64% D*/D in BTECs in 2018. Boarding Boarding at QE means having access to high-quality facilities which provide a real home from home; a safe and productive environment that they can thrive in. Common rooms are provided for all boarders, so that students can get together and socialise. All boarding bedrooms are air-conditioned and have private en-suite bathrooms with a toilet and shower. Dedicated pastoral areas on campus are accessible for students throughout the day and well into the evening, supervised by pastoral staff. Here students can come and meet a Peer Mentor or Buddy, chat to staff and help with anything they might need. Students have access to fantastic sports facilities which encourage them to maintain a healthy lifestyle and manage their own fitness with the support of gym staff, teachers and coaches. Our life-long learning programme supports our boarding students with invaluable skills for future life, and our dedicated boarding team understand that the soft skills they promote outside the classroom are every bit as valuable as the academic skills gained during the school day.

Committed to the IB Learner Profile, Louisenlund not only aims for the best possible academic achievement amongst our young learners; the sense of community, companionship and consideration for others, as well as the readiness to take on responsibility are of particular importance. Since its founding in 1949, Stiftung Louisenlund stands for a top-class education, with high standards for academic achievement and character development. We offer the possibility to choose between the German Abitur and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, two widely recognized qualifications. 440 pupils, including 70 from abroad, currently attend the halfday primary school and the full-day ‘Gymnasium’ (German secondary school) or the IB Diploma Programme.

relaxed and familial atmosphere. Because of the large number of Anglophone teachers, various native speakers teach their own language (English, Spanish and Chinese) and our membership in the esteemed Round Square network, Louisenlund enjoys a good reputation worldwide. Another important feature is the exceptionally good relationship between students and staff, deriving from the small learning groups. Particular talents and weaknesses can be specifically fostered. Besides the educational possibilities and the broad range of extracurricular activities, life at Louisenlund is a time to remember for other reasons: local and international projects, linguistic and cultural diversity on the campus, lifelong friendships and the exceptional team spirit of our community.

TASIS The American School in England offers a challenging American curriculum with Advanced Placement (AP) courses, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, and English-as-anAdditional Language support to students from more than fifty nations. Experienced and dedicated teachers provide individualised attention, nurturing each student’s intellectual curiosity in small classes throughout TASIS England’s three sections: Lower (ages three to nine), Middle (10-13), and Upper (14-18). While academics are emphasised, students also explore and develop their talents by participating in a wide variety of sports, leadership pursuits, extracurricular activities, and community service. The

breadth of these opportunities enables students to excel wherever their individual strengths may lie. One-to-one college counseling assists Upper School students in every step of the university selection and application process. This, along with their success in AP courses (similar to A levels) and the IB Diploma, results in 97% of TASIS graduates gaining acceptance into their first- or second-choice universities in the US, the UK, Canada, and worldwide. The School’s spacious campus, located in a quiet village 18 miles from London and eight miles from Heathrow Airport, blends historic buildings with modern, purposebuilt facilities for science, technology, theatre, visual arts, music, and sports.

Proximity to London also enables the School to take full advantage of the opportunities that England and Europe offer as extensions to classroom learning, and students enjoy numerous educational field trips, weekend activities, and travel abroad. TASIS England’s enduring goal is to provide a busy and happy environment in which each student flourishes as a principled, open-minded, compassionate member of a global community.

child will love coming to school. As an international school we can choose to select the very best components of any curriculum. In Primary school, we use the academic rigour and framework of the English National Curriculum as our foundation and extend this by International Primary Curriculum. For our older students we offer the International GCSEs programme which is benchmarked against UK and international students, so important for University applications but also in preparation for their ‘post16’ studies. Our ‘Post-16’ curriculum is based on the world leading International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and we have offered this for 15 years with huge success and is often regarded as the ‘perfect’ preparation for university study.

We are unique in Warsaw in that we are part of a family of 61 schools with Nord Anglia Education (NAE) which allows us to leverage international collaborations. Our students have the opportunity to travel to our expedition based snow-sports centre in Switzerland; renovate schools & build goat sheds in Tanzania; perform with over 500 talented musicians at the Juilliard School, New York; attend Space camp and STEAM festival at MIT University and take over UNICEF Headquarters in NY. Also recruiting outstanding internationally experienced teachers is at the heart of any successful international school, and our global presence allows us to attract the very best.

After school clubs are offered to students of all ages.

At the end of this journey, students are bilingual and bicultural, exploring concepts and transferring skills with ease in both languages. By the time they graduate, most students also master a third language or more. All students study a common EnglishFrench bilingual program from preschool through 8th grade, at which point they enter either the “international” or “preFrench baccalauréat” section.

Bringing Together World Leaders Escola do Futuro does not have this name by chance. From Preschool to Grade 12, the institution offers a bilingual curriculum developed on the basis of multicultural and Christian values. The students experience a learning environment of total immersion in English, through which they acquire the cultural knowledge needed to gain proficiency in the target language, as well as prepared to face future challenges as leaders who can change the world into a better place. Escola do Futuro’s goal is to bring together world citizens. The students not only acquire full proficiency in additional languages, as English and Spanish, but also build the necessary cultural references and values which will allow them to interact naturally and consciously wherever they are. Our students learn to accept and welcome diversity. Our educational philosophy is based on a skill-driven curriculum focused on the development of autonomy and critical thinking; so students become aware of their transforming role in making a better world. The School’s vision is clearly reflected on its environment, where the purpose built facilities integrate the learning process. The classrooms, common areas, such as the cafeteria, patio, and courts, invite the students to interact socially, while allowing them to respect each other’s individuality. The international program provides students with the opportunity to pursue higher education abroad; anchored in the education of professionals that face the challenges of tomorrow, as citizens of the world.

São José dos Campos, Brazil, is a city known for its attractive surroundings and importance as a center of Science and Technology. Esfera Escola Internacional aims to contribute to the development of innovative citizens, who are able to interact in international contexts for the common good. Esfera offers an academically rigorous bilingual curriculum from Preschool to Middle School which is based on the National Brazilian Standards and the IB framework. Esfera is also an UNESCO Associated School. In Preschool, children are encouraged to develop their social skills and explore the world around them, through play-based learning, building new understandings and learning to communicate their ideas

and feelings with respect. Relationships are at the heart of the Preschool program and multiple intelligences are valued, allowing for differentiated approaches to teaching and learning. Teachers recognize the full potential of each student, aiming to foster their talents through creativity and a joy for learning. In Elementary School, students engage in six transdisciplinary Units of Inquiry each year, exploring content and concepts, while developing essential skills and attitudes. Students become progressively more autonomous in their ability to think critically, work collaboratively, employ technology and propose solutions. Then, in the Y5 Exhibition, they are able to demonstrate the breadth of their understanding, skills and values

­­­­­­­­­­298

that they’ve acquired throughout the PYP. In Middle School, students work with interdisciplinary units in an expansive curriculum that includes: Languages (Portuguese, English and Spanish), Mathematics, Science, Design, History, Geography, Art, Music, Drama and Physical Education. Students continue to develop their international mindedness and active pursuit of meaningful action through the international exchange programs and the Community Project in Y9. Throughout Middle School, the tutorship program allows students to become more aware of their learning process and how to develop strategies for thinking and relating to others as they change and grow.

Much more than buildings and grounds, establishing a new school requires experience, understanding and leadership. The best schools are, without exception, filled with happy children who love going to school. These are the children who will achieve the highest grades and go on to do great things. Happy children are busy children. The best teachers make sure that their pupils discover new things, explore new ways of seeing and learn to love the process of learning itself. All of the teaching staff have British teaching qualifications and recent

experience of delivering the English national curriculum. King’s College understands how to work with local governments and communities, ensuring that our schools comply with local as well as British standards. We believe that child-centered, exploratory learning teaches young people how to think, question and explore new ideas. All learning is based upon these core skills; not simply a list of memorised facts, but knowledge and understanding. We give your son or daughter the best possible chance to reach their full potential, as an independent thinker and conscientious young person.
