Nourishing and celebrating diversity
SIS is considered to be a community of learners.

SIS celebrates its diversity not only in regular class activities but also by hosting an International Children’s Festival every year.

Teachers design learning activities that empower students’ academic achievement and personal passion for life-long learning. Social development is a high priority at SIS, and its mixed age group After-School Program activities promote interaction among children of different ages.
