I am very pleased to welcome you to our Middle School website. A tour of these pages will provide insight into the learning experiences of our students, the environment in which they learn, and what drives the learning that is taking place. With a strong team of teaching and non-teaching staff, wonderful students, the solid support from our school council and hard-working parents, the Middle School is a wonderful and happy place in which to work and learn together, as we all contribute to the warm and friendly atmosphere we all enjoy.
The Middle School comprises a diverse international staff and student body exemplifying a rich blending of cultures. The pursuit of academic excellence and community and service initiatives is integrated with the artistic, cultural and creative side of students and occasionally, it is a struggle to maintain the right balance.
In all of these experiences we have focused on developing Middle School students who truly embody the School-wide Learner Outcomes: caring, open-minded, inquirers, risk-takers, reflective, balanced, communicators, knowledgeable, visionary, courageous and principled.
The opening of our dedicated Middle School building with re-modeled classrooms has been the highlight of this year. Some of the students told me recently they wished they had more time in the classroom. Indeed, it is a home away from home for many students. Technology has been introduced progressively, with Google Classrooms being introduced this term. Google Classrooms allow teachers to create classes, post assignments, organize folders, and view student work in real-time.
The website will provide more detailed information that will help both current and prospective students and their families. It will also be of interest to members of the wider community, the school council, and indeed our alumni all over the world.
