Learning at SDIS

We focus on inquiry-based learning, critical and creative thinking skills, problem-solving skills in a safe and positive environment. This prepares our students for the unknown future. Students connect what they learn inside the classroom to what they do outside school by exploring questions that arise from their curiosity, interests and passions.

Our teaching and learning practices are rooted in the International Baccalaureate Programme, helping students develop as the whole person and challenging them to achieve their highest potential as individuals – and as caring, ethical, open-minded, balanced and adaptable global citizens. 

A variety of sports and activities throughout the year that foster teamwork, leadership and well-being.

Access to  technology enhances and extends students’ learning as they develop digital literacy skills to create and critically use technology.
