Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Soka International School Malaysia (SISM) is a unique institution based on the Soka philosophy of value creation.

We offer comprehensive education from lower to upper secondary Cambridge curriculum and pre-university levels. As the world's first international school embodying Soka's humanistic values, we are pioneering a new standard in international education.

At SISM, we nurture an environment that promotes academic, intellectual, and personal growth. Our dedicated faculty fosters critical thinking, creativity, and social responsibility.

Teaching approach of the school

Humanistic Learning Model - Learning Joyfully and Purposefully
We understand that a joyful learning environment will help bring out the fullest inner potential of students, equip them with the necessary skills, and enable them to become future-ready so they can succeed in every venture of their lives.

The humanistic learning model is a holistic approach to education. The main focus of this model is on the development of the human as a whole rather than the development of any single skill or knowledge deemed important at a given point in time. The humanistic learning model aims to promote self-actualization in students by emphasizing intrinsic motivation and the internalization of values rather than extrinsic motivation such as grades or rewards.

a) Mastery Based Learning
SISM classes are conducted through the blended learning approach to allow self-paced learning and mastery of understanding.

b) Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
SEL is an essential part of the curriculum. Students will be equipped with strong socio-emotional skills so that they are more resilient, joyful and successful in academics and in life.

c) Dialogic Learning
Dialogic Learning is an integral part of all subjects which focuses on developing learners' discussion and empathetic listening skills. This allows students to become more engaged in learning.

d) Purpose Based Learning
Purpose Based Learning allows students to develop the ability to apply interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to lead a contributive life for the betterment of self and society.
