|Average number of students per class||
An individualized approach to each student’s needs is of foremost importance to us. VIA, therefore, limits enrolment and keeps its classes small. In the first two years of the high school, classes typically have around 10 students. IB Diploma Programme classes usually have fewer than 10 students, depending on the subject choices.
|Use of technology in the classroom||
VIA's students learn using technology (laptops, smartphones/tablets, graphic calculators) throughout their education, both in lessons and for assignments outside of class. VIA does, however, emphasize the benefits that technology can provide whilst appreciating the need to reduce screen time for students.
|External examinations or assessments available||
IGCSE, IB Diploma
