SCAD World School is opening in June 2012 for students in Classes KG to 9. We are offering the Cambridge Primary Curriculum and Secondary Curriculum supported by the International Early Years and Primary Curricula in the Primary School the International Middle Years Curriculum in Class 6-8. Students will be assessed through Cambridge Checkpoints and IGCSE. We intend to offer the IB Diploma programme from 2014.
Our Statement of Learning Philosophy reflects our commitment to a holistic programme of learning centred around the individual needs of students:
SCAD World School: Learning through Enterprise and Service
SCAD World School students are enterprising and respond creatively to a changing world. They aim high, achieve well and create opportunities for themselves and others. They are internationally minded because they are culturally confident. They develop the inner resources and skills they need to be the best they can be, now and in the future. They are supported by a community who share and are able to model this philosophy of lifelong learning and who engage students in the experiences they need to make deep learning happen inside and outside the classroom.
We are planning to open for students on June 15th 2012. We intend to start the students’ academic programme with an induction and ESL language summer course. While some students are fluent in English most students enrolled have a basic command of English or are not confident in their use of English.
We are conscious that we will need train our teachers to incorporate ESL techniques into the learning they plan for students. With this in mind we want our teachers to be exposed to expert TESL techniques and also for them to have some teacher training input as part of the Summer Course. This may be within the classes and/or separate teacher training sessions on incorporating ESL into teaching and learning.
