Learning principles

The curriculum implemented at ISC-Abu-Dhabi is specifically designed by SABIS® to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to develop a solid academic foundation. This foundation will help students achieve their full potential and develop a love of lifelong learning. All courses for students at all levels are clearly structured to enable students and teachers to know precisely what should be learned. Teachers teach one concept at a time using the SABIS Point System® with each lesson alternating frequently between oral work, individual work, and group work in such a way that it is difficult for students to “switch off”. Students engage in regular assessment using exams that teachers do not see in advance. Everyone in the school is accountable. Accordingly, students learn more in class and have more time for relaxation and fun after school.

Student Support

Support for special learning needs

Yes

Students who fall below academic expectations are rarely refused. At an extra cost, several solutions suitable for their academic needs can be offered. These include summer school and special lessons. The summer school is a six-week course offered in June to August whereas the special lessons offer additional periods in one subject until the grade level proficiency has been reached.
