ISK believes that the student, not the teacher, is at the core of the educational process. Using a single approach with all students does not produce a positive result. ISK builds a better school, and a better educational experience, by recognizing that students learn best when we use differentiation, build on students’ strengths, teach to international standards, design excellent educational content, utilize wonderful physical spaces, and teach collaboratively.
Our goal is for ISK students to become fully fluent in English by the time they graduate in Grade 12. We therefore place a high priority on English every day, with every student. All classes, except Russian and Tatar classes, are taught in English. Students learn to read, write, speak, listen and think in English. All our teachers are highly qualified and skilled educators; as a group, they bring a wealth of experience from countries around the world.
The ISK libraries support language development by providing access to English books at all levels. Students may borrow books to support the units they are studying, or to read for pleasure.
