SIG is a leading educational organization with a mission to develop international schools of excellence in this region. The founders are graduates from Georgetown University and the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania.
We follow the American curriculum. Our curriculum is developed in collaboration with New York City’s Bank Street College of Education and aligned to the NY State Common Core Standards (Common Core + 15). Our curriculum is a progressive American program that allows children to “learn how to think not what to think”.
Our educators are experienced teachers from across the world. We hire our educators from a number of sources such as the Progressive Educators Network, Harvard University, and International School Services, etc.
All our lead teachers are required to hold advanced teaching credentials, from the US or equivalently accredited universities. Our educators are from the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, and primarily the USA.
Children must be 3 years old by August 31st of the academic year they are applying for.
The maximum number of students per class is as follows:
Each class has a designated lead teacher who holds advanced teaching credentials. In PreK to Grade 2 classes, a qualified support educator is present along with the lead teacher. In Grade 3 and above, there are floating support educators on hand for lead teachers to call on.
