Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Quality Schools International has a strong belief that all students can succeed. QSI departs from traditional schools in that it is not as much concerned about “time” being the “defining” factor of student learning. In most schools, students are given a certain amount of time to complete learning in a subject, and then students are assessed on their performance. In QSI, time is used as a resource, so the outcomes that are designed to develop students into well-educated and well-adjusted individuals are thoroughly mastered.

Teaching approach of the school

The QSI educational philosophy of Mastery Learning is the strongest in education. Our teachers are dedicated to help students reach their individual potential. If the student does not reach this standard, the teacher will continue working with this student until they succeed. Student learning is at the center of everything we do.
