Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

VISS' primary focus is on meeting the learning needs of individual students to help them achieve excellent outcomes as they journey through education and life.

Teaching approach of the school

The Victoria International School of Sharjah is a supportive and productive learning and teaching environment where students’ needs, backgrounds and interests are reflected in the learning programs and the design of the school. The School’s focus is on designing organizational arrangements to challenge and engage young people.

Thinking oriented programs that focus on ‘major projects’, key concepts and key questions together with assessment and teaching practices form the basis of all whole school and program based planning. Sufficient time in teaching sessions is allowed for students at the school to properly and fully examine ideas.

Learning experiences are challenging, engaging, and involve practical ‘hands-on’ activities and first-hand encounters wherever practicable. Appropriate support structures are developed to encourage students to follow interesting and open lines of inquiry in projects and investigations where knowledge and skills gained can be applied to real world situations.

Learning opportunities at the school are open-ended, cater for the multiple intelligences of all students and are based upon cooperative ‘student-centered’ learning strategies with sequential courses of study.

Learning and Teaching programs are based in but not confined to the classroom. Multipurpose spaces, and weather permitting, outdoor areas, are used for large groups and both targeted and integrated activities. Excursions into the community, visits from community members and camps, enhance the learning program.
