At SWIS, the Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme highlight intellectual challenge and we encourage our students, Grade 6 to 12, to make connections between what they learn and the world they live in, preparing them for success in the future. Our program enables students to question into a wide range of topics and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

The students take a broad range of subjects across eight subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Mathematics, Arts, Physical and Health Education, Science, and Design. These eight subject groups are integrated through concepts, approaches to leaning and global contexts.

SWIS subject teachers work collaboratively to plan the curriculum both vertically and horizontally from Grade 6 to 12. The content and skills for each subject have been carefully selected to ensure that they are relevant and challenging and that there is continuity and progression of learning. Each subject organizes its course into units of work. For each unit teachers identify key and related concepts, global contexts and subject group objectives. Teachers also identify the specific Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills and the attributes of the IB Learner Profile that will be developed through each unit of work. The curriculum also offers opportunities for interdisciplinary learning when two or more subjects work together on a common concept and skills within a global context. As reflection plays an important role in students’ learning, the students will be asked at key points in the year to reflect on the learning process and their own performance in the different subjects.
