At ISS, academic rigor is enhanced by our purposeful and planned focus on student well-being. In keeping with our inclusive philosophy, we continue to maintain small class sizes to ensure a high level of engagement and support student success. Our unique hilltop campus, set in a nature reserve, is a safe haven where students learn in a tranquil environment that is optimal for learning and encourages creativity, high level thinking, and innovation, including opportunities to engage in authentic biological and environmental studies.
Our unique personalised learning programme, developed by teachers and administrators over several years, is based on research from the world of psychology and current thinking on how students best learn. Students benefit from our lower student-teacher ratio and their performance is carefully monitored through a comprehensive profile that includes internal assessments, standardized tests, community engagement, and anecdotal evidence, all of which are tailored to their specific goals. As an integral part of the personalised learning programme, we use this data to identify teaching strategies, student pathways, and subject offerings for the future years.
We believe in encouraging our students to customise their own learning journey, empowering them to be independent learners who can navigate the world with confidence. Frequent dialogue with teachers and parents opens opportunities for reflection, strengthens the parent school partnership, celebrates progress, and enhances student self-esteem and creative thinking. Since introducing our personalised learning programme in 2019, our IBDP average has increased by 2 -3 points.
Last year, ISS students achieved a 100% pass rate at the IB Diploma level: 15% above the worldwide average. 96% of students achieved a bilingual diploma (well above the worldwide average of 27.64%) and the average points achieved was 35; three points above the global average. These excellent results place ISS in the top 10 schools offering IBDP in Singapore.
