"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
On behalf of the team at Wise Oaks International School, it is my privilege to welcome you to our community. Choosing a school that nurtures your child like a mother, disciplines like a father and teaches like life, is not an easy task. As lead educator of Wise Oaks, my vision is for our students to be critical thinkers and creative and sensitive individuals who would endeavour to build a beautiful world filled with love and compassion. As parents are the first teachers of the child, we consider our parent community as key stakeholders in this journey of nurturing the child.
Every child's uniqueness comes from the diversity of his/her background, abilities and learning styles. At Wise Oaks we are committed to establishing an environment in which students feel at ease, encouraged to explore ideas, make choices, value their self-worth and learn to accept failures and successes in equal measure as part of learning. A safe and motivating ecosystem provides fertile ground for true learning to take root and grow.
The role of a teacher today is not just to deliver content based on good curriculum and clear plans to achieve academic goals, but to be a mentor, an intellectual resource and a coach to keep students engaged and inspired in what they are learning. At Wise Oaks, teachers aim to prepare our students for a future of jobs that has not yet been created, and for technologies and challenges that are yet to be invented or anticipated.
Our teachers at Wise Oaks have been handpicked to ensure a rich blend of experience, pedagogical excellence and good classroom management skills to ensure students grow to their fullest potential. With our student-centric approaches, our teachers actively strive to improve learning through pedagogical innovations.
The motto 'Seek, Strive, Soar' depicts the school community endeavouring to excel in all aspects of life and soaring to the heights of our individual and collective abilities. To fulfil our aspirations, Wise Oaks complements the curriculum with essential programs that engender values like honesty, hard work, compassion and sensitivity towards all beings.
I invite you to be part of this meaningful journey and look forward to seeing all of you as members of our happy community. Do give your feedback and encouragement to our team at Wise Oaks as we seek to make our school the very best place for your child to strive and soar!
