Mission & Objectives

The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.

Our Mission is to develop the intellect and character of each student by providing superior quality education with a global perspective.

LEARNING

The heart of Smarten School lies in the dynamic relationship between student and teacher. Smarten follows a rigorous curriculum that engages students through inquiry and collaboration. Our dedicated faculty encourages students to think critically, to take risks and to be creative. We challenge students to strive for personal and academic excellence, and we treasure the intellectual, social, artistic and physical development of each student. Smarten students participate actively in their learning and engage themselves completely in the intellectual life of the school.

Students benefit from an academic programme based on unique combination of the IPC (International Primary Curriculum). It is a distinctive program which provides a comprehensive study plan that aims to equip every student with the essential skills for lifelong learning while meeting individual education needs. The school promotes independence and self-discipline in an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation of diverse opinions and cultures.

The IPC has been designed not only to ensure thorough learning but also to help teachers make all learning interesting, active and meaningful for children. It is being used by schools in more than 85 countries around the world.

Character

At Smarten School, the students are kind, honest and respectful towards others. We believe that students develop integrity and strength of character by learning to make good choices and by taking responsibility of their actions. We value a strong work ethic, and we seek to instil in our students a sense of optimism and determination in the face of challenge. Our supportive environment encourages students to develop the courage to act independently and the confidence to pursue leadership opportunities.

Community

Respect for individual as well as cultural differences is of central value at Smarten School. We celebrate the open exchange of ideas and spirit of inclusiveness that flows from our multicultural community. The active involvement of students, families, alumni, faculty and staff creates the energy and enthusiasm that characterizes the Smarten experience. Our community participates wholeheartedly in the extensive opportunities found, and we are committed to pursuing learning experiences throughout the world.

Service

Our belief is that service to others teaches young people to become dynamic and effective citizens of tomorrow. We encourage our students to find passion and purpose beyond themselves. Smarten school offers meaningful opportunities to students through service learning to participate actively in our school, local neighbourhoods, and abroad. We seek to instigate the compassion and international awareness necessary for students to contribute responsibly to the global community.
