Our
Voices

We all have stories to tell, stories that reveal who we are, and the experiences and people that have shaped us. They allow us to reflect, learn and connect. Our community believes that sharing these stories empowers us and others, extending our vision far beyond the walls of our school.


10 REASONS TO JOIN US

Teaching and Learning at VIS

Our learning principles are the foundation of a rigorous international education aimed at cultivating learners to become culturally proficient human beings. 

First reason to join

Collaboration

“Learning and personal development takes place in partnership. By working together, we understand that interaction enhances learning in a way that generates empathetic and responsible people. This is clearly seen in our commitment to service learning. Collaborative partnerships between students and the community, and between teachers across different subject areas encourages us to step out of our comfort zone, develop new perspectice and make the curriculum authentic.”   - VIS art and English teachers

Second reason to join

Passion and Inspiration

“Exposure to fascinating things creates a passion for learning. I wanted to study physics ever since I was in grade 8. A decade later I find myself a teacher, doing whatever is in my ability to inspire the same kind of passion in my students whether it be in the classroom or beyond.”  - VIS physics and math teacher

Third reason to join

Inquiry

“When I teach science I want students to do things…to play…to take risks. I want them to explore a question that does not have a direct answer and in order to do that they must get comfortable with ambiguity. When they are successful, their inquiries produce many new questions rather than one right answer. In this situation, students begin to think as scientists.”  - VIS science teacher

Fourth reason to join

Play/Critical Thinking

“ When children are playing, they are becoming self-regulated and self-directed. They are gaining the strategies and tools to solve problems in a real-life context. No amount of worksheets or textbooks can enable that opportunity.”  - VIS early childhood teacher

Transdisciplinary Learning

- VIS assistant principal

Sixth reason to join

Action

“One of the most important jobs of a teacher is to support students in taking independent action. Taking action does not always mean doing something big or showy – sometimes it’s as simple as influencing your own understanding, or that of someone else. Changing perceptions is also a form of action.”
