IQ – Ambition
For mathematics, language and reading we work with cutting-edge British teaching methods. Our focus is on the future, which is why we pay special attention to 21st century skills such as creative thinking, communication and collaboration with others. Science is also an integral part of our school program!
We set high expectations of our pupils based on their individual levels. In addition to instruction being given in small groups, children receive direct feedback on their work so they can make adjustments and continue working in an effective, way. This way, pupils are always being challenged to work on, or just above, their own levels.
Since technology is an indispensable part of society, we work with laptops and Digi-boards in all groups. From group 6 on, every pupil must have his/her own laptop (financed by parents). This laptop stays at school until the end of the year. After that, the pupils take it home.
