JOINING MIDDLE SCHOOL
Grades 6 to 8
SIS’s student-centric Middle School Programme offers a careful balance of academic rigour with creative interest, along with a strong emphasis on literacy, numeracy, and learning skills to ensure a smooth transition from primary to high school.
Based on Canada’s Ontario curriculum, students are assessed entirely by the coursework undertaken throughout the semester. Assessment outcomes provide teachers with information on where students are in terms of achieving curriculum expectations and allow teachers to guide students with alternative learning strategies towards achieving their learning objectives.
Unique to the Ontario curriculum is teachers’ use of observations, conversations, and products to evaluate students’ learning. Teachers provide continuous feedback to students and guide them in the direction they need to go.
Message By Middle School Facilitator
Academic progress is not the only priority in Middle School. SIS emphasises holistic development and provides a wide range of co-curricular programmes that focus on students’ academic and personal interests including debate, sports, poetry, and music, to name a few. The Middle School Student Council that is separate from the High School Student Council offers more personal and leadership development opportunities to students in grades 6 to 8.
SIS is a member of the International Schools Athletic Council (ISAC) which gives students the opportunity to compete in various sports and athletics competitions as well as interact and build friendships with students from other international schools. SIS’s Middle School Intramural Sports League helps students develop an active and healthy lifestyle.
As a teacher in Middle School, I am always impressed, proud, and energised by our students. Every year, students in our school go above and beyond to demonstrate their passion for learning about the world around them. Beyond academics, it is their kindness, inclusiveness, open-mindedness, and resilience that make every one of our Middle School students truly exceptional. Undoubtedly, this will continue to be the case for years to come.
