EDUCATION FOR A GLOBAL FUTURE
We focus on an educational experience that values the arts and sciences, and believe young people should cultivate a sense of responsibility to act judiciously and be of service to others. There is a focus on excellence, while also recognizing that learning, at all levels of ability, should be celebrated and supported.
The curriculum at our school prepares young people to face the challenges of an ever-globalized world. SCIS provides a responsive environment to all students, including those needing additional assistance and those with exceptional abilities. Griffin graduates show an international mindset, they technologically adept, ready to become future leaders.
ACADEMIC CONFERENCES AND PARENT COMMUNICATION
The School encourages our high school students to become self-directed learners, working with their teachers to set learning goals. Student progress is continuously monitored and both parents and students participate in academic conferences with the respective subject teachers to discuss academic progress, allowing the opportunity to plan and implement strategies to assist in achieving these goals.
